Concepts: Think Globally - Act Locally- It can be a bit of an eye opener to realize that the skills learned in an adventure-based learning program can be utilized to change the world.  This processing activity helps participants  consider the greater good of their efforts.

Considering who the lessons of today will benefit increases the value of this information.  Understanding that I have gained a new skill is one level of understanding, but realizing that this skill can benefit additional folks, some of whom I have yet to meet, brings even more value.  A list of individuals and groups to consider is helpful, and assists individual group members in considering all the possible outcomes for the skills learned in today’s program.

Process: At the completion of the program or activity, ask the group what skills they have learned during this activity.

Next ask them how this skill benefits the various individuals and groups listed here.

Allow participants a few moments each to consider the groups listed.  Remember, not all forms of review require verbalization.  Even while participants are considering the list, they are reflecting on their experience.
