Recap Week 2

Congratulations, that’s Week 2 completed!

You’ve learned about:

  • Who will be at your Dojo, and what roles they’ll play
  • The importance of building a team, and where you can find volunteers
  • What to look for in a venue for your Dojo
  • How to handle fundraising and ticketing for your Dojo
  • How to make your mentors’ lives easier with educational resources
  • Some tips and pointers for recruiting young people for your Dojo, and how to work with them once they’re there

Once you’ve put some of these strategies into practice, you should be able to complete a few more pieces of the online Dojo registration process you started last week!

Don’t forget to complete your Sushi Card before next week, as we’ll be talking about using Sushi Cards to plan your Dojo, both in the short and long term.

Next week we’ll be looking at:

  • Planning a Dojo session
  • More details of using learning resources in your Dojo
  • Planning your Dojo’s year
  • Recognising your Ninjas’ achievements
  • How to develop your Dojo over time
  • Special events you might want to run at your Dojo
  • Planning for the future of your Dojo
