It’s Back: Youth Leadership and Speaker Program
We are excited to announce that Action4Canada is hosting another five week Youth Leadership and Speaker Program scheduled to begin April 21 through to May 26, 2023 (excludes May 19). Register in Advance
This Level 2 course will include persuasive strategies that youth can use in order to be influencers in the community they live in. These strategies will include impromptu speaking techniques and debates, using powerful tools such as problem-solution, pros and cons, cause and effect, compare and contrast, to name a few. It will also include various methods of providing feedback and how to be an effective listener.
The following is a response from one of the parents who provided testimony of how the program made a difference in her daughter’s life.
“I would like to take the opportunity to thank you from the bottom of my heart for holding this course. I have seen an immense difference in our daughter’s confidence being boosted. We have a saying in our family that all it takes is 10 seconds of courage to change your perspective. This course has made a world of difference for Naomi. ”Thank you, Emily March 2023
Below are three speeches from the recent Youth Leadership and Speaker Program.
The Christian Rainbow
Geneviève gives a speech on the meaning of the rainbow, reminding us that it is God’s special creation and has a deep meaning and purpose. It’s time to take back the rainbow!
“I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth. ” Genesis 9
Our Attitude Affects Our Actions
Chesney’s speech is on how our attitude affects our life and how perseverance plays a huge part in achieving success. A positive attitude isn’t all it takes to get a positive result, it also takes action! The example from the Bible of Peter and the disciples’ decision to act on Jesus’ instructions to cast the net one more time is evidence of perseverance, and faith, paying off…big time!
Wayne Gretzky also said, “You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take“.
Olav gives real life examples of making free and informed choices and stresses the importance of not being pressured into making decisions that violate your conscience, bodily autonomy or your rights.
Be sure to Register your youth for the next Action4Canada five week Youth Leadership and Speaker Program!
