Challenging Students to Promote Positive Experiences In High School

CORA Counselors Host 9th Annual Friendship Day at Archbishop Ryan
December 7, 2018
Last Thursday, November 29th at Archbishop Ryan High School, CORA Counselors Jessica MacKay and Lauren Johnson ran the 9th Annual Challenge Day, a day-long counseling workshop on building empathy and promoting friendship, with the NO PLACE FOR HATE club. Challenge Day is comprised of several carefully crafted and scripted exercises which create a genuine connection between teachers and students- and promote the experience of belonging. More than 50 students gathered in Ryan’s gymnasium for a day of activities geared at creating a school environment where everyone feels safe, loved and celebrated. CORA counselors walked the students through exercises that provoked deep insights, connection and empathy for others. Ryan students raved about the experience!
One senior said that Challenge Day allowed her to connect with many students she wouldn’t have gotten to know otherwise and that she felt like her support system at school has grown.
