Workshop: Sociocracy with Children

Mars - SoFA Zoom Room https://www.sociocracyforall.org/mars-zoom-180463541

Sociocracy has many components, and yet children absorb concepts such as consent and selections much more easily than adults. In this workshop, you’ll gain hands-on experience using sociocracy tailored specifically for younger children (ages 5-10.) The workshop will come with an informational workbook designed to take children step by step through sociocratic processes along with an adult, whether you are working in a school group, at home, in a club, or a co-op.
