• Race around brainstorming as many ideas as you can for problems that apply to your hometown and the world
  • Choose 1 problem you feel most passionate about solving, that you want to focus on for the rest of the workshop
  • Reframe the problem you chose as an "opportunity" to create change


Definitely keep a timer for this part of the workshop. It’s easy to go over!

When girls are choosing the problem they want to focus on, make sure it’s an issue they care about and understand who it specifically applies to. For example, “cyber-bullying with middle-school girls” or “LGBTQ discrimination in schools” would be powerful and effective problems to work towards.
