1. Randomly pair your youth up with a partner.
  2. Ask them to choose one of the following topics to share about
    1. Who is your closest friend and what do you love about them?
    2. What was the best experience you had this summer and what did you do?
    3. Who is someone you look up to in your life and why?
  3. Have partner #1 share for 10 full minutes about that particular topic while looking at their partner. The trick is, they have to keep eye contact and not look away.
  4. Let partner #2 also share for 10 full minutes without breaking eye contact.
