Equipment

Blindfolds if you choose to use them.

Objective

For team members to lead their blindfolded partners around keeping them safe.

Instructions

Have the group get partners. If an odd number in the group have one group of three. Ask one of the partners to blindfold themselves or close their eyes (I have them close their eyes for emotional and physical safety - they can open their eyes quickly if they need to). The other partner leads the blindfolded partner around the building for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, switch partners.

Processing

Ask the group to share their experiences. Ask them if they preferred to be blind or to lead. The pressure is on the leader since the blind person cannot see where they are going. This experience can give participants a taste of what a truly blind person experiences every day.
