The art of conversation

  • Young women and young men talking

Purpose

Become better friends with the youth in your ward.

Description

Have the youth sit in two rows facing each other. Before the activity, review the “Friends” section of For the Strength of Youth to learn ways to act in building friendships. Introduce a discussion topic, and have the youth seated across from each other discuss it. Change topics every few minutes, and with each topic change have one row of youth rotate so that everyone has a new discussion partner. Topics could include favorite hobbies, family traditions, goals for the future, creative dating ideas, what qualities you like in young men or young women, and so on.
