10Boundary CardsSort ‘boundary cards’ into true/false and not sure groups. Group activity or paired activity followed by group discussion.
The cards contain statements such as ‘Give young people in my organisation the chance to share their views and opinions confidentially’ which they are to sort into true/false and not sure. By sorting and discussing the statements Ambassadors will gain an understanding of the boundaries within which they are to work.
