Core Sessions / intro
There is sufficient choice of content to suit a wide variety of groups. You could profitably spend two hours per session, although it would be possible to select options that enable completion in a minimum of sixty minutes. Make your choices in line with your group’s abilities. But, this flexibility needs to be used carefully so as to ensure that the aims of ManMade are achieved. It would be possible to spend far too long on the ‘fun’ activities and miss out on the opportunity to encourage thought and enable young people to make positive life choices. The essential sections are Get Connected and Man of the World.
Things to think about before
- ManMade is designed to work with groups of 6-12 males
- Ideally it should be used with mid teens
- Individuals need to commit to the whole journey
- Find a commited team who are ready to support the group.
Each core session has six sections:
Warming Up: Choose from 4 activities that introduce and illustrate a session’s core value.
Get Connected: Show the Voxpops or print out the Scenarios.
Men of the World: Debate each core value using personality profiles of well- known men.
Man of the Word: Reflect upon the core value with an exploration of the character of Jesus.
Making the Point: Use an interactive activity to consolidate learning.
Join the journey: Help the core value to become a reality for each young person with activities to do before the next session.
