In-School Team Training Day 2013

Each year schools from across the region who have an In-School WAYVE team come together for a fun, inspiring and informative day. Over 100 youth gather to meet other people from across the region who are as passionate about change as they are.

Guest Speaker – Kelly Lovell

Youth from across the region enjoyed listening to what Kelly shared and had tons of questions for her in a Question and Answer period that followed her talk. We were so grateful that she was able to join us and help inspire those who attended.

One of the favourites from the day was a “Coping and Hope” activity where people shared resources with each other. Here are the lists that everyone came up with:
