This highly interactive Program based on the "Learning by Doing" principle targeted our youth by equipping them with the tools to communicate concise and impactful messages. The workshop also provided students with skills they can use immediately in class presentations, and other university experiences, and carry into their professional careers.
Below is the impression provided by Lawrentina D'Souza:
Today, we had the opportunity of attending a useful Leadership and Careers workshop hosted by the Ontario Konkani Association. The main objective was to be a successful communicator, observer, and doer. This was accomplished through activities such as personality assessments, mock interviews, and impromptu speeches. We also learned a fair deal about our potential futures through university and career presentations, booths, and discussions. It was an interesting day where we developed our skills and understanding and enjoyed a great youth bonding experience. The quality of the knowledge we acquired was priceless and we urge our fellow youth members to make use of such opportunities as well.
