This program is focused on cultivating respect, responsibility, self-confidence and caring in the school or classroom. Each student will sign a Responsibility Contract, which serves as a structure for creating behavioral norms that everyone in the workshop agrees to follow, and that everyone in the workshop agrees to work on maintaining throughout the school year. The norm-setting process establishes an atmosphere of caring, of feeling connected and of feeling valued. This atmosphere is critical to students’ being able to participate fully in Adventure activities.
