Leader in Training Program vol. 3 Report

Location: Ikusabata, Ome City
Participants: 6 LITs and 4 volunteers
Date: June 11, 2017
In the 3rd session of the LIT program, the six high school students attended a lecture on camping and applied Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to specific camping scenarios.
Masa (aka Pirates of Tokyo Bay), a “master of public speaking,” taught the rest of our group about improvisation, which helped the LITs create a deeper bond.
First, the LITs practiced games like pantomime and imagination that require eye contact. Afterwards, they performed an improv skit with clearly defined characters, relationships, purpose, and location. The LITs took on fictitious characters and placed their trust in one another to complete the story!
Masa taught us to say, “Yes and…” instead of refusing the other person and that there is no such thing as failure, only “happy accidents” that can lead to many opportunities.
Last but not least, the six LITs determined their respective responsibilities for the two-day one-night expedition at the end of their one-year program, and presented their targets for achieving their goal.
Next month, they will elaborate further on their individual responsibilities.
