Ever Forward Club: Taking off the Mask Box

Ever Forward Club logo

Taking Off The Mask is a highly experiential social and emotional learning workshop run by Ever Forward’s Ashanti Branch. By asking participants to reflect on the masks they present to the world, the workshop creates a safe space for students and adults to engage in open, honest dialogue and develop greater self awareness. Our solution, the “Taking Off the Mask” Workshop Box, is a kit that repackages this successful workshop into a set of materials that schools can purchase and use to facilitate the workshop independently of Ashanti. The box includes a thorough set of instructions, training materials, and physical and virtual props – including paper masks, virtual videos, and a takeaway reflection activity. We plan to market the Box to schools, primarily through word of mouth, and we hope it will enable Ever Forward to scale its reach within its current resourcing and expand its revenue streams.
