GUIDE : The Path of the Warrior
In CG RISING, you unlock your tools and missions step by step.
Gain knowledge, apply it, win, hooray. Next level. Start small, evolve to bigger, more complex actions as your community and confidence grow.
Youth Crews, Student Clubs and Warrior Clans walk this path
Adult Volunteer “Messengers” walk through Spheres 1 to 3
Adult Allies are part via the Boost! Club and YOUTH-LEADER
The Path takes you through different Spheres of Experience.
It’s like in sports and music. Know your tools, practice the basics, then freestyle, compose your own, jam together, team up, rock.
The “unlocking” approach makes sure that only practitioners have access, and can experience a self-paced tutorial with real world action, reflection, milestones and feedback. Submission and unlocking are automatic, but we see what you’re doing and your contributions will show up in our social media. If time allows, we’ll say Hi, and invite you to join tribe meet-ups also as a newbie.

Congratulations again. You have facilitated an interactive “tutorial” experience. You’re not the only one inspired by youth leadership. People have different favorite causes, are touched by different stories, have different talents. CG RISING empowers, unites them all. This session has given you an experience of what can happen when this message reaches people, many people. including new allies, support and opportunity. Now, with this trove of experience, let’s take it out there.

Congratulations! You have tested your act with “real” people, have experienced positive results as well as temporary limits and challenges, that are normal in a non-hero society. You did well. It is highly likely that you have sparked demand for more (sessions with that group), one or more youth teams, won adult allies and supporters, and generated presence on YL, social an news media.
