“Virtue Ethics” – New from Tapestry of Faith

Posted by T. Resnikoff // April 20th 2012 // Guides and Tools, UUA, youth // no comments

Field-test VIRTUE ETHICS a new Tapestry of Faith program for high school youth!

Engage your congregation’s youth in a UU-based exploration of moral frameworks, ethical choices, and how our behavior shapes our character. In 12 90-minute workshops, the Virtue Ethics curriculum guides youth to discover how integrity, humility, generosity, and other classic “virtues” do and could operate in their real lives.

Virtue Ethics is structured around stories, activities, role play, reflection and faith in action, and is designed for use as a multi-workshop program for youth in grades 9-12, or as individual modules. You can extend the program by using the simple workshop template to help the youth explore more virtues.

Why field test a Tapestry of Faith program?

The UUA seeks UU faith communities diverse in size, geographic location, and program format to field test Virtue Ethics. Field testing leaders are asked to submit feedback via an Internet survey site; instructions will be provided.

1. Experience new UU programs as soon as they are published.
2. Provide crucial feedback to help shape a new generation of UU religious education.
3. Engage with UUA resource development staff, on a person-to-person level.

Introduce your faith community to the UUA’s online, interactive, and flexible family of Tapestry of Faith resources, useful for a wide range of programs and participants.
