Name one thing that surprised you about this activity. The Masks We Wear People often compare themselves to others. They also wear different masks or put on different faces, depending in the particular norms of the social situation they are in.
Masks provide a comforting way for them to hide their true selves and fit in and they serve as a protective barrier to avoid getting hurt. Teenagers, in particular, often go through tumultuous times and experience a roller coast of emotions, leaving them more vulnerable to loss of identity.
This activity allows participants to analyse, demonstrate, and explore the different ways they act around the important people in their lives. Craft paddle pop sticks, glue or tape Procedure Begin with a discussion about why people wear masks. Ask participants to think about the masks they wear and how they change daily.
Provoke thought about how they act at home, school, and social events and around friends, boys, girls, strangers, teachers, sports coaches and others.
When everyone is finished, ask them to discuss their masks and how they change from day to day and situation to situation. If you use craft paddle pop sticks, Life today can attach them to their masks so they can hold Life today masks up to their faces when describing the different situations in which they wear them.
Discussion Questions Which mask do you feel most comfortable in? Which mask would you like to get rid of? How will you use what you have learned today? Self-Portraits Rationale Self-portraits offer people a creative outlet to express how they view themselves in a non-threatening format.
Encourage everyone to consider how they feel about their body, home life, school, friends and social activities.
Give everyone a few minutes to grasp an activity. Distribute the self-portrait handout and art supplies. Ask everyone to draw their images of themselves to the best of their ability. When everyone has completed the assignment, ask each person to describe their self portrait to the group.
Discussion Questions How is your portrait different from the image you project to others? What is a step you are willing to take to improve your vision of yourself? Role Models Girls often identify with other females as role models and copy behaviours, dress, interests and hobbies.
Boys do the same with other males. They often have difficulty finding and relating to appropriate role models who can help them face the future with a positive, healthy outlook. Furthermore, it can be difficult for them to find role models from diverse backgrounds to whom they can relate.
Everyone needs healthy role models who place importance on friendship, responsibility, decision making, sports, academics, and community service.
Positive role models can help everyone deal with the many complex issues and decisions that are an intrinsic part of growing up. This activity encourages participants to explore appropriate role models, with whom they can identify.
Materials A copy of the People Who Rock handout for each participant Pencils or pens Procedure Begin with a discussion of the many positive role models in our society.

Ask participants to think about an adult who has been an encouraging role model to them. Give each person a copy of the People Who Rock handout. Ask participants to write the qualities of their role models in the squares. When everyone has finished, have them share the characteristics of their role models with the group.
Discussion Questions What are some characteristics of great role models? Do you think it is hard to find appropriate, realistic role models?
What are some things you have learned from your role model and applied to your own life? Is there anything that you would like to do differently so that you can be more like your role model? If so, please explain.
