Young Ethical Explorers – Planting a Seed of Intergenerational Friendship: Mystery Buddies! (Online)

February 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

YEE members will adopt an elder pen pal, a “Mystery Buddy.” YEE will create personal introductions without revealing who they are. Partnering children with older Ethical Members, YEE plants the seeds of intergenerational friendship. Ethical Mystery Buddies will pen-pal through the YEE mailbox.

With guided writing prompts, children (with family assistance if needed) and adult participants will commit to writing letters. Using a “mystery mail” process we will get to know each other through stories. By springtime, we’ll be we’ll be ready to Zoom together in a “Reveal Party” of partnerships that can lead to life-long, community-building friendships.

YEE has moved online with Zoom, and as always, newcomers and visitors are welcome! To join, please RSVP to Youth Programs Director Audrey Kindred at youngethicalexplorers@gmail.com.

Ethics for Children is our Humanist Sunday school, designed for youngsters from ages 4 to 13, and takes place concurrent with our Sunday Platform meetings. Sessions raise issues of personal identity and integrity, appreciation and respect for others, and knowledge of religions, philosophies, and social concerns. Topics are explored in an age-appropriate way through discussion, storytelling, dramatization, music, art, games, and field trips.
