What does a Hero Celebration look like? Session 7: Week 3

Thinking back to our first Exhibition, I remember how everything was organized at the last minute. The group had trouble deciding who would be in charge and how to divide tasks. It took them multiple days to decorate (and some guide assistance).

Before this ceremony even began, I knew how much the Heroes had grown, not just individually but as a group. They wrote their own speeches and gave each other feedback. They sent out formal invitations to families. They decided what the theme would be, what kinds of snacks to make, and then made both of those things happen. This event was created by Heroes.

The Heroes’ Celebration is a time for reflection. Looking at the achievements of the Heroes from every perspective. We don’t just celebrate badges earned. We celebrate the growth that each badge took to achieve and the everyday experiences that shape you into the person that you are today. To all the Heroes out there, we hope that you continue to grow and flourish on your Hero’s Journey!
