We will be doing activities that are made to make the participants critically think about our three main themes and initiate a compelling discussion
Activity 1: I Want You To Know
Goals: To share the experiences of various ethnic, gender, religious, and cultural groups and listen to one another.
Directions: Each of you will be put into groups and given a ethnic category. You will have ten minutes to answer the following questions ...
What we want you to know about our group?
What we never want to see, hear or experience again as a member of this group?
What we want our allies to do?
When all groups have completed their lists, we will reassemble into one group and discuss our answers
•What are your initial reactions to the activity?
•Which group did you learn the most about?
•Did any of the statements surprise you?
•Did you notice any similarities between the groups?
Location: University of Detroit Mercy
Student Fitness Center
Date and Time: June 21st
8:30AM - 1:00PM
Activity 2: Cross The Line
To emphasize the importance of knowing and communicating personal values.
To highlight how personal values influence the group
To develop the idea that knowing your values will be the basis for leadership
To introduce the concept of values based actions.
Directions: Everyone gather on one side of the line and face towards its center. We will call out specific categories/labels/descriptions, and ask that all of those to whom this applies, walk to the other side of the line. For example, we might request that anyone with glasses please cross the the line. If this describes you and you feel comfortable acknowledging it, you would walk to this side of the line. Once there, turn and face the crowd you just left. Get in touch with your feelings and think about those people on both sides “ then return to the side you started from. After a few seconds, I will
continue with a new question.
There are two important ground rules to this activity.
1. The first involves listening. Let’s have silence throughout the exercise " no talking, snickering, giggling, nonverbal messages."
2. It is imperative that we respect the dignity of each person who is here. All that is shared should remain confidential “nothing that is offered should leave this room.
From this summit we hope to bring the male youth of Metro Detroit together so we can talk about subjects that impact their lives daily
