We are just stepping into the Do It phase and we’re realizing that with the tedious folding of the cranes, there’s a lot of quiet air to fill without our usual discussions, games and activities. With an outstanding attendance of 7-8 teens both days, we knew keeping the whole group focused on our goal for the entire session would be a challenge, but thankfully, we’ve discovered the unifying effects of music. We have a lot of budding young musicians at PSP who crave to be involved in modern music, so to fill that desire, we’ve signed up for Spotify and Pandora, allowing the teens to take turns DJ’ing our sessions. We had a bit of a rocky first day with this new element, but we have coached the teens how to log in and out of the music players, how to search for clean versions of their favorite songs and have discussed as a group what we find offensive and inappropriate because everyone has different standards. The second day was much smoother; we saw new friendships form over music being played and teens who are usually quiet that spoke up or even sang along!
