WHERE MANHOOD STARTS
A day of active participation where the boys experience dynamic games and activities that all directly relate to the social emotional themes of the day.
Boys don’t often have the opportunity to discuss issues and strategies regarding launching into manhood. The Rite Way is a day which will raise their consciousness of this transition out of boyhood. Activities are geared around boys exploring the journey that lays ahead and helping them realise that there are many choices which will determine the type of man that they will become.
Likening this transition to any journey The Rite Way team will explain the 7 steps which are integral to a successful journey of any type. And within these steps a variety of issues will be addressed including:
HONESTY/WHEN THE GOING GETS TOUGH
Exploring honesty, taking responsibility, maturity and self-talk. Challenging the boys with “Why do you choose to lie?” “What does it take to ‘own up’?” and “How mature are you?”
Exploring weaknesses, trust, male-masks, being open ourselves and empathic to others.
Exploring the male ‘pay-out’ culture, compliments, strengths and building each other up.
“One thing I learned from The Rite Way was:
- that you should try not to lie
- to encourage people
- that feelings are cool
- to think about positives
- that you can tell the truth
- to respect people
- to trust my friends”
