The Mission Portfolio sponsored two of Doncaster Secondary College’s 2019 College Captains, Abbey and Josephine, to attend a one day training workshop on Asset Based Community Youth and Development in late November. Rev Claire and College Wellbeing Coordinator Drew Hanna participated in the day with them.
The workshop focused on how to unleash youth leadership in and with community – for now, not just the future. Participants looked at Asset Based Community Development as both a youth leadership identification tool and an approach youth can use to lead.
Josephine and Abbey said they will use the tools they learnt from the workshop in their leadership next year with the Student Representative Council (SRC) and the wider student body.
This was a great opportunity for our Children, Young People and Family Minister Claire to build relationships with next year’s captains and develop possible opportunities for collaboration in 2019.
