Description

Class Experience

I work from a person centered perspective.  I'm cool with awkward moments and silence.  Growth happens in discomfort.  I leave space for connection.  I make sure everyone gets a turn to speak, keep things safe, and as much as possible, I try to stay out of the way.   

This is a learner driven class.  They are getting to know new people.  I often don't know what they are talking about, and don't plan on keeping up with trends.  I'm curious when I can be, but I know enough to back off if the group is connecting over something that I've never heard of.  They aren't here for another adult perspective.   

I see their strengths.  Every person has value to offer and I am passionate about making an open space for learners to share and connect.  
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This is a facilitated, not an instructional class.  There is no content on "How to" make friends.  This is a social space where learners are encouraged to share things that are important or interesting to them.  Practice is the best learning. 

Learners are invited to co-create our meetings. Bring your ideas and passions to class. This group is trauma informed. That means we don't play around with potentially traumatic topics including murder and violence. All topics are welcome for discussion but trauma will not be our party theme. This includes murder mystery games. Thanks for understanding this effort to provide a safe space (in a short time) for all. 

Occasionally we use external websites to play games.
