Great New Material Updates Coming

July 30, 2009 at 6:21 pm Leave a comment

Occasionally we’ll receive calls from customers asking if we have updated our curriculum since their last purchase. If they’ve ordered anything more than two years ago the answer is usually – Yes!

While the edits we make to our Activity Guides and Facilitator Manuals tend to be minor, the changes are often a result of a suggestion or comment from someone in our community. We greatly value all the feedback we receive and do take it into account when we’re ready to print new books.

Specifically, over the next month we’re making significant changes to our Growing Healthy, Going Strong and Standing Together Activity Guides for boys and young men. Many of the activities will be more experiential and therefore more engaging for participants – especially important when facilitating Councils with younger boys. Watch for these improvements to hit the shelves within 2-3 months!*

Many Girls Circle Activity Guides will get less extensive, but fresh new edits as well. Based directly on feedback from facilitators and training participants, Body Image is being adapted to include language that speaks to a broader experience of physical identity.  Honoring Our Diversity and other GC guides will be improved, including the addition of application questions to each activity.

Also, we’re introducing a fantastic new Quality Assurance Tool to our Council Facilitator Manual! This tool will help organizations increase the effectiveness and connection provided by the model.

Have you ever facilitated from our material and thought, “I have a suggestion that would make this activity more engaging” or, “A change in wording here could improve the relevance for different communities”? If so, we would love to hear it! Contact our offices at (707) 794-9477 or email us at

*If you were planning to order these Council guides sooner, we will be offering the new improvements as inserts to customers who had previously purchased the material – either for free or at a very low cost. Details to be announced.
