Community Builders: Guys & Girls

Contributed by: Phil Trotter

Split the group into guys and girls – give the girls a copy of the “Girls Only” questions; give the boys the “Guys Only” ones. Each group spends 20-30 minutes on their own, then they share their answers with each other.

Girls Only

Guys:

Think about the guys in your life: What are guys like? What are some of their key characteristics? What are some of their qualities?

Self Esteem:

Generally, girls build their self-esteem through meaningful relationships. To build a girl up, show that you really want to understand her, respect her and value her feelings. Do you agree? How do you think guys build up their self-esteem (e.g. is it the same as girls, or different?)

Listen up, guys…:

Make a list of some things you’d like guys to know about girls…
