A few weeks ago, I organized a workshop specifically aimed at some skills that I felt that my youth team needed to improve on. The Kennedy High School Youth Board, Yvette, Bianca, and myself were among those who were in attendance. The workshop ran for about 2 hours in length; it was followed by lunch. In the workshop, I covered topics like: public speaking, goal setting, and the importance of teamwork. They felt like they needed to learn about these skills because these are skills that they will be implementing in a few months.
REFLECTIONS: At the end of my workshop, I felt good knowing that my site understood what I was trying to get across to them. It was important to me that they understood the information, and I felt that I did a good job.
