Title

Lifeboat

Time

5:30 pm – 7 pm EST

Description:

“Lifeboat” is a creative, reflective, and fun event focused on creatively describing ourselves, our challenges, and how we can approach those challenges using our strengths, skills, and perspective. Starting with an ice breaker, we will brainstorm our favorite slogans, affirmations, and quotes. The main activity will be to then imagine a scene of a boat out at sea. Each portion of the image signifies a different portion to approaching challenges: the sea being our challenges and things would like to improve in our daily life, the boat being the tools we use to approach those challenges and how we can take care of ourselves in the process, and sky being goals and ways we can maintain self-care using those tools in our lifeboat. Lastly, we will close by sharing our works of art!

Materials

Paper, writing utensils (pen, pencil, markers, or crayons).

Hope to see you there!

Each portion of the tree signifying a different portion of who we are and what we can do (the roots being our goals, the trunk being our needs to accomplish our goals, and leaves being things we’ve already accomplished that we are proud of). Lastly, we will close by sharing our works of art!
