With the introduction of this program, I’ve learned numerous skills in communicating, expressing, understanding and building relationships with friends, future co-workers, family, and loved ones. Personally, I love the methods Ms.Brown uses to incorporate a lesson of showing empathy, compassion and active listening skills. Such as the name game in which we state our name and something we like beginning with the first letter of our name. In a group of people, we would allow everyone to speak and the person after the first to speak would have to remember the previous person’s name and their example. Another game would be the High’s and Low’s where we ask anyone how their week was stating a positive and negative thing that happened. Both games practice active listening skills to communicate and understand one another as well as building a bond. The skills taught by Ms.Brown are crucial and useful for anyone and everyone and I advise this be taught in schools especially at a unprecedented time as we’re in now.
I love the methods used in this program

Being a Lunch Bunch mentor has been a powerful and fulfilling opportunity for me to support a small group of boys – at a vulnerable age between childhood and adulthood – develop emotional and social skills that I expect will positively impact their personal and academic success.
Attending small groups every week has been such a benefit to my life. In our small group we have an opportunity to release stress and anything we are overwhelmed with by sharing it with everyone.
It was awesome to share the info with our folks in Nebraska schools and colleges! You have every right for your heart to grow big. This is good stuff and it is definitely powerful in the way that changes students’ lives. I’m proud of you, Jill, and proud to know you!!
