UC San Diego Hillel’s Triton Jewish Leaders gathered for a workshop to learn techniques and best practices for planning an awesome program.

Lesson 1: learn how to “yes, and” – which happens to be the first rule for both improv and brainstorming! We practiced “yes, and” by coming up with ideas for a hypothetical event. After our brainstorming session we learned how to create a POP (which stands for Purpose, Outcomes, Process), or a structured outline detailing the goals and procedure for planning a successful program.

Not only did students learn techniques for planning events, but it also inspired a group of students to come together to plan a Purim party with Hillel!
