Youth Virtual Choir:
This remote collaboration works by recording your singing and sending it in to us. We’ll stitch together all of the singers into one giant sonic collage debuting at General Assembly. Show the world what God’s doing through your generation.
Escape Room Adventure:
Break out of the workshop mold with this wild and wacky adventure game. You and your team of up to 10 will be “locked” in a church-themed room, with 45 minutes to find clues, solve puzzles and discover keys and combinations to “escape” before your time expires.
In the Hunger Simulation, you take on the identity of a real person experiencing food insecurity. You have 15 minutes to determine your food budget and get the recommended USDA MyPlate servings of fruits, vegetables, protein, grains, and dairy.
You can do this by shopping at the grocery store, visiting the food pantry, and applying for SNAP benefits at the DHS office. Then, you will reflect on your experience and share with the rest of the group.
