* Belonging – Everyone has a yearning to belong to something. When you intentionally create an environment that facilitates belonging, it’s the first step to building trust among youth. They are empowered to do this through guidelines that teach them to RESPECT each other and embrace DIVERSITY. * Bonding – Once youth feel a sense of belonging, they become open to bonding with each other. As humans, we have a deep desire to bond with other people – we need to connect with others. They are empowered to do this through guidelines that teach them how to WORK TOGETHER and BE HONEST with one another. * Believing – Once youth genuinely bond with one another, they become open to believing – believing in themselves and something bigger than themselves. Believing leads to a profound sense of CONFIDENCE, SELF ESTEEM, MOTIVATION, & HEALTHY EXPRESSION.
