Every participant agrees out loud to actively take part and have fun in this session of Free Being Me. Saying it out loud means participants will contribute more openly, resulting in a bigger impact on their body confidence.
What to do
Once you have introduced Free Being Me, thank everyone for attending and ask them to shout their enthusiasm and willingness to participate in the first session of Free Being Me.
Are you ready to get excited and contribute to this session of Free Being Me, and have fun along the way? If so, shout “YES I AM!”
Remember that the support prompts are there to help you deliver the key messages of Free Being Me in a really effective way. It’s ok to paraphrase these as long as the message stays the same.
Encourage every participant to take part in the pledge.
To make this more fun, you could ask everyone to add movement when they shout “YES I AM” – for example, try asking everyone to jump up or into the circle all at the same time, or try a ‘Mexican wave’ where each person raises their hands one after the other. There’s a Take Part Pledge at the beginning of every Free Being Me session – it’s great to be creative and do it in different ways – why not ask the participants for their ideas?
