What are the important elements of building a loving, safe, and supportive community? How do you contribute to maintaining these elements in your community?
What are some ways to support and care for each member of your community? How do you help out when someone is in need? How do you make newcomers feel welcome in your community?
What happens when there are differences or conflicts within a community? How do we respond with patience, tolerance, and openness to building bridges?
Share an example of a community working together to accomplish a greater goal. What happened and how was it made possible? What kind of roles did members play along the way?
Thank you to all of the participants of the 3rd Annual Student Voices Project!
