Topic: Values & Choices (influence of social media/popular youth culture/societal expectations, respect & dignity)
This week’s edition of the MOT Voice of the Cape Radio Series, we focused on values and choices and external influences.
During the MOT sessions, the MOT coach (educators/lecturers) will take the youth through various tasks, activities, story-telling and role play exercises as well as ask thought-proving questions, for example: “What set of values would you like to have in future?”.
Values drive and direct our behaviour and guide our decisions, it is important to align your actions to your values.
Having strong and clear values, affects the choices you make and how you deal with situations in your life. MOT focuses on 3 core values to assist with this; Courage to Care; Courage to Live; Courage to say “NO”.
The MOT programmes provide practical exercises and activities to help the youth understand peer pressure and how to deal with it.
