On May 22, 2018, Positively Caviar, Inc. teamed up with the Boys in the Good organization for a powerful speaking engagement/workshop. Young boys at Randallstown Elementary School in Baltimore, MD had the opportunity to participate in an informal workshop centered on the importance of optimism.
"BOYS in the GOOD" is an after-school youth leadership program that helps boys develop new attitudes, behaviors, and ambitions while recognizing the importance of dressing well and being respectful. Boys participate in weekly character education workshops, community service and a number of enrichment opportunities. The purpose of this program is to inspire young men in grades 3 through 5 to reach their fullest potential both academically and socially. All boys serve as leaders of the school community and work each day to fulfill the aims of Giving, Optimism, Originality, and Determination.
Positively Caviar Founder, Chazz Scott, had the chance to inspire and empower the young boys by speaking to the science of positive thinking, the relationship between the conscious and subconscious mind, and the process of erasing old habits & gaining new ones. “The kids were so engaged and excited”, Chazz proclaimed. “It’s a necessity that kids of this age understand this material now rather than later. It can have huge benefits over the course their lives on their habits, choices, and ultimately of their destiny. As Frederick Douglass said: "It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men."
At the end of the program, the young men were handed the signature “Stay Positive” wristbands in an effort to actually actively apply affirmations as a technique to overcome challenges. These wristbands serve as a reminder to individuals to Stay Positive during times of adversity. Boys were extremely engaged and eager to learn more about how to sustain optimism throughout their lives. Positively Caviar hopes to conduct a continuation of these workshops with the Boys in the Good in the near future.
