Sandra Dicker, Youth Coordinator of Department of Youth Elders and Recreation said the Leadership workshop held last month was a great success!
Twelve youth attended; from Makkovik, Hopedale, Postville and Nain.
The workshop length was 3 and half days.
The youth came up with a theme of Recognizing your potential.
Mark Langoois was the instructor .
Dicker mentions that they had a jam-packed schedule.
She also mentions that they had a lot of positive feedback from the youth about the workshop.
Each group had a task in which they have to do before the Youth Symposium in May.
For example the Nain group’s focus was on Teen Pregnancy. They have a to-do list and will follow up with that at the Youth Symposium.
They would like to see contraceptives more accessible for the youth that are sexually active.
Youth who attended this workshop are invited back as participants for the Youth Symposium to see how well they are doing with their particular tasks.
