Playworks of Greater Washington DC provided the opportunity to host a civil conversation by inviting An Imperfect Union and their participants to the Children’s Guild DC Public Charter School for a Junior Coach leadership training.
An Imperfect Union, a weekly series that brings people together with opposing views on a variety of topics, is a model that engages participants in a neutral location for an open conversation about a divisive issue while participating in an immersive service project in their community, together. The goal? To hear differing opinions with respect and then work together to support the community.
In this fun-filled day, Junior Coaches from Children’s Guild DC Public Charter School taught participants how to step up to include and respect all students at recess. They discussed how important those core values are to creating a civil conversation. In our Junior Coach Leadership Program, we encourage teams of students to work together to learn games, fair play, and positive conflict resolution and to teach these skills and lessons appropriately to their classmates.
