Julie Bogart once said, “collaboration requires presence, not help… our job is to partner”. At Freerange, we fully encourage partnerships that will allow both our members as well as facilitators the opportunity to learn through collaboration.
This week, we experienced these partnerships on a daily basis, whether it was Siya and Marco crafting a shield and hammer from scratch, the littluns and the teens’ collaboration in their conflict resolution, Jaden, Luuka, Siya and myself partnering up to build a fire pit.
Partnerships at Freerange go a long way. We are all allies who support and coach each other through the trials of each day. Encouragement is inevitable and it really is a wonder to see such positive unity when it occurs as naturally as it does here.
