Cadette Finding Common Ground Badge Workshop

Apr 3, 2020
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM EDT

Democratic governments exist to help citizens with differing opinions find common ground – the place where people’s thoughts, opinions, and beliefs intersect. Whether it’s Congress, your state, or the local town council, elected leaders often have to make trade-offs - giving up some things they favor to gain support for others. In this badge, investigate how our government does it – and how you can, too.


  • Get to know someone different from you
  • Make decisions in a group
  • Explore civil debate
  • Understand a compromise
  • Find common ground through mediation


When I’ve earned this badge, I’ll know strategies for bringing people together to find common ground.

Workshop minimum is 12. Cost for the workshop is $23.00 and includes badge, snack and materials for workshop. Please plan to arrive 15 minutes before start time for check-in. We will start promptly.
