Vision Board Workshop
Vision Board Workshop
Poster Board- full or half sheet
Vision Board Pages
In order to save time (and in order to save your girls from having to use scissors since many of them may have restrictions in place) go ahead and cut out the printables on the vision board printables (link below). Also, I did not use any magazines because it can be hard to find the words or ideas you are looking for, and so magazine flipping can make things take a lot longer. The printables I used worked really well and enabled me to make the most of my time.
I did not print out 20 of each page so that each girl had one of everything. That would take hundreds of sheets of paper. I printed 3-4 of each page so that the girls would have choices.
On the day of your workshop, each person that is participating (volunteers and those at your charity partner) should have supplies for a vision board. You may share the link to the printables if you would like.
Go over what you will be doing with the girls. Tell them about the supplies they have and the purpose of each item. Show them some of the printables that you like in order to give them some ideas. Then it is time to begin!
As you and your volunteers work on your own vision boards, show the girls what you are doing. Share ideas with each other. The more you share your work, the more comfortable the ladies you serve will feel in sharing their work.
I held up various quotes and pictures and talked about what each one meant to me and why I chose to put it on my board. I also encouraged the girls to draw or write their own ideas on the board and not just rely on the printables. I also told the girls that if they saw a quote they liked, but it was already taken, they could just write it on their board.
Toward the end of your time, ask if anyone wants to share. Overwhelmingly praise the ladies who are brave enough to share their board and describe what they put on the board and why. They are being brave and vulnerable in sharing their boards and that should be applauded.
Once everyone has had the opportunity to share, you can end your time by talking about the exciting things you will be doing next month!
