Risk-Taking: Life On The Edge
Our experience with youth at risk has shown us that the topic of risk-taking is a non-threatening point from which to embark upon the challenging work of self-reflection and the creation of positive change with young people. As a result, we begin the video series with the topic of risk-taking. Most Power Source groups begin with the risk-taking module. Providing facilitators with a dynamic video on risk-taking helps to ensure that members become engaged with the program from the onset.
Throughout the Risk-Taking video are clear and concise cues to facilitate group discussion. Time: 33:38 minutes
