On Oct. 17, we welcomed over 1,000 high school students (from 80+ schools) to our 2018 Youth Leadership Seminar.
Our theme was all about being EMPOWERED. Students heard from six local speakers and participated in activities that focused on understanding themselves as leaders and how to then apply what they learned at the event in their schools and community.
Rather than just tell you everything that we did, we wanted to show you what our students experienced!
Our six local speakers shared their stories and wisdom with our students, each with their own lessons on what it means to be EMPOWERED.
Students worked with students from other schools in the breakout sessions to brainstorm ideas and share similarities and differences in their communities. This is when they were introduced to the AMF Service Challenge. In the challenge, schools are asked to develop project ideas that address needs in a community, whether local or international.
Some schools at the event already have potential ideas for their school projects.
We will keep you updated as schools progress through the service challenge projects they decide to take on.
Thanks for checking in this week, we are already planning for next year’s YLS, we’re that excited about it!
