Winter Speaker Series: Dawn Chavez

Friday, December 17, 2010

Dawn Chavez of Boston Youth Environmental Network (BYEN) spoke with the Leadership Team about her own youth employment experience in New York City parks. She asked each of us to draw a map of our past and to reflect on how our past has led each of us to where we are today (see the image below).

We also completed an exercise called Slice of Life:

Draw a large circle. Divide this circle into sections to represent different areas of your life and how much time you devote to each. Use the following list as a guide. Feel free to add and/or subtract categories as needed.

  • Self
  • Family
  • School
  • Spirituality
  • Exercise
  • Friends
  • Work (job)
  • Hobbies
  • Culture

How does your pie chart look? How would you like it to look? Do your pie slices reflect your priorities in life?
