Virtual Group Reflection

Recommended time: 30 minutes 

The way you facilitate this group activity virtually will depend on the platform you’re using. You can watch the video below to see how whiteboard in Zoom is an effective tool for facilitating the Finding What You're For group activity. You could also use something like Google Docs to create a collective document, or discuss the questions over a phone call.  No matter which platform you use, remember to allow participants time for individual reflection.  When you can, build in opportunities where participants can express if they had similar fears, loves, or ideas about what they are FOR.
