Make sure your participants know your and each others’ names.

Each teen will get a chance to play the “You” role in each scenario in front of the group. The Small Group Leader plays the other voice.

See page 1 of each Program Material package.


The scripts are based on true stories. They are conversation starters and for practice for encounters that will be different but include similar vocabulary and listening skills. Make it clear that everyone’s experiences and opinions are valued; encourage participants to share without fear of judgement.

When a teen has a question you can either answer it right then or ask them to write it down for the Question Box to be answered by the Facilitator.

Pause as needed during Role-playing to offer proper attention to reactions and concerns.

Steer the group back to the scripts so that everyone gets a chance to practice articulating the truth with compassion.
