All of the activities stressed the importance of working together and included choreographing dances,  playing trust-building and problem-solving games, and engaging in discussions about their lives over a meal.

The program offered a chance for youth to bond while simultaneously encouraging them to use their full potential as a collective to advocate for their rights and make sure their voices are heard.
