The Empowerment of Youth
This week I have experienced the empowerment of youth. On Monday night my daughter, Angela, performed in the ACT finals of Wakakirri. Her school had made it through the heats to get into the finals and she invited myself and my wife, Kim, to attend. They did a great job on the performance and I enjoyed each schools performances. It was a great night to see what primary school students can achieve.
Then on Friday, I was fortunate enough to play touch football against some high school students through work. I watched as the students were a little nervous to start with, but then they warmed up. A group of young people versing a group of adults… It was a tough game (for me anyway, being a little out of shape). What I did notice through the game was that they each got more and more involved in the game and a few of them started to demonstrate leadership skills.
In both situations listed above this week, it has been great to see young people in a positive light, demonstrating what they can achieve, not just as individuals, but also as a team.
What positive experiences have you gone through this week?
