It’s Service Challenge Friday! This year’s YLS theme is Move Forward, Give Back. Intern Shelby will post more about the theme in a later blog. However, what better way to start living out this theme then to participate in the Service Challenge?! The service challenge is a program developed for you to get out there and help better your school or community in your own way, based on your needs. We want you to participate because we know just how awesome your ideas are.
All you have to do to participate in the Service Challenge is create an idea for service in your school or community, sign up with the program, execute your plan, and update us about your progress. And did we mention that the top winning ideas get monetary prizes to help fund their program (and who doesn’t love prizes)?
So what are you waiting for? Start brainstorming ideas now to bring to this year’s Youth Leadership Seminar. Stay tuned to the blog to learn more about the Service Challenge or checkout our website and get inspired to make a change for the better. Make sure to read next Friday’s blog where we will do a spotlight on Hamilton High School, who did an amazing job on their Service Challenge.
Comment below about the Service Challenge and let us know how you are getting ready for the big day!
Don’t forget to use the hashtags! #MOVE2012 #MFGB #countdown2YLS
Hello again! As promised, we are ready to unveil some more of what YLS (Youth Leadership Seminar) is all about. If you are wondering, “Why should I go to a leadership seminar?” the answer is:
- someone thought you showed great leadership potential
- you have interesting and creative ideas
- you are passionate about your community
(Put simply, you rock!) So basically what will happen the day of YLS is you and other students representing your school load up in the morning and head over to the Cintas Center at Xavier University. You get a cool (free) tshirt, and get to hang out with high schoolers from all over the local Cincinnati area all day (Score!). Throughout the day, you will:
- hear speakers, including former Navy SEAL Jon Sanchez and the group Journey of Action
- enjoy a super cool concert by KJ-52 to get you pumped up
- and get to participate in what we call breakout sessions
These breakout sessions are a time for the group from your school to meet up with a group from another school and share what sorts of issues are relevant in your local communities and what are some ideas you guys have of improving those things. The two groups get to bounce ideas off each other and hear different perspectives. And who knows, you might make some really cool new friends! All in all, it’s a day you don’t want to miss, and we cannot wait to see you there. Stay tuned at the end of the week for our First Service Challenge Friday post from our other intern blogger, Kenna!
