As a Group Leader you have the power to lift the lives of others and that’s an exciting thing to be part of! This toolkit makes hosting The Lift Project simple and enjoyable.
The Lift Project is designed to be taken over 10 weeks, ideally with the participants coming together for a weekly meet-up and this can be done face-to-face or via videoconferencing. While you have the flexibility to be creative with how you conduct the weekly meet-ups, here is a suggested structure (Note that Powerpoint presentation templates for each lesson are provided below):
- Actively debrief on the previous lesson (discuss with your group what they learnt and how they went with the challenges).
- Introduce the next topic (Provide a synopsis of what the topic is about and a teaser to get spark the participant’s interest. If time allows, some face-to-face groups choose to watch the main video for the next lesson together and discuss what is presented).
- Introduce the challenges for the upcoming week.
As a Group Leader, the most important thing you do is create a “positive place” for the participants to come to. To achieve this, be warm, friendly and encouraging. And make it fun! Also, sending an encouraging email or text message between lessons can make a big difference to the participants’ engagement and experience.
Thanks for being uplifting!
