• Mentoring sessions
• Card tricks to use in the playground/dining hall

Inspired by feisty debates and the monastic.

These cards are a handbag (or manly man-bag) essential for anyone working with young people. We’ve all been in that scenario with a young person or a whole group, where we want to take the conversation deeper, or perhaps just get the conversation started. Whether you find yourself in a mentoring session, a buzzing drop in café or a clammy minibus stuck in traffic on a youth residential, these innovative cards have a part to play in building relationships and having fun and meaningful discussions. 

The idea is simple and evolved directly from working with a young person who opened up when a card game was involved. A pack of cards with a cheeky twist, each card features a question. The four suits correspond to a key theme; questions about you, others, the world and beliefs. 

An inexpensive, simple and versatile tool.
