Making Our Covenant
At our meeting, we brainstormed the following covenant.
We’ll revisit this at our next meeting and use it to ground and guide
our learning and working together as this year’s Mid Maine YoUUth Group:
Listen to one another
Respect what other people say
Not laughing at each other
Clean up after yourself
Show up on time
Start and end on time
If you can’t be there, let adult know
Challenge yourself step up or step back
Assume positive intent
Honor the need for safety and confidentiality
Break – People payed their monthly dues to Mark Glovin, Mid Maine YoUUth treasurer.
What do YOU know about the United Nations?! J Morten Moesswilde, Belfast
Morten prepared a fun quiz about the United Nations. We learned lots and can see more clearly what we don’t yet know! At each of our meetings, we’ll spend some time learning about the work of the UN and their engagement with refugees which is part of the focus of this year’s Multigenerational Program.
