What Is The Challenge?

The show aims to promote connection and model the Take 5 Challenge. The challenge is to take (at least) five minutes a month to connect with others. To intentionally spend time being there for each other in the parks and recreation profession, checking in about your current projects, programs, professional goals, or challenges.  The Take 5 Challenge will help to establish and broaden our circle of personal and professional support.

Henry's Vision

I believe connection with others is vital and makes us  better. I know it’s true for me. We need others to help us along the way. As Iron Sharpens Iron, we can sharpen each other and I want to do this through the Take 5 Challenge. It’s simple and easy to do. I invite you to join me and connect!!
