A project that aims youth to produce a competent leader and speaker of tomorrow and to sharpen as well as to polish the youth hidden capability and credibility.
The program entitled Youth Leadership Enhancement (YLE) themed ‘Leadership Now’ is organised under the category ‘Sihat Kepimpinan (Healthy Leadership)’, one of the 14 Gaya Hidup Sihat (Healthy Lifestyle) Program organised by the Sabah Youth Council. The training modules are constructed to instill healthy leadership within the students, and to ignite the spark for the youths to be active citizens in the community.
Among the sessions conducted were: Leadership by Example, Young Entrepreneurship, and What You Can Do as a Responsible Youth for our Country. All trainings were conducted by JCI Intan led by Head JCI Senator Teresa Alberto, joined by trainers Anne Antah and Cathy Molly Albert.
JCI Intan collaborated with Majlis Belia Sabah to conduct this program in conjunction with Hari Belia Sabah. This 1-day program received participation from SMK St. Peter Telipok, SMK Datuk Peter Mojuntin and SM St. Francis Convent. The students had enjoyed trainings sessions, team building activities and group presentations prepared by the trainers.
JCI Intan has conducted this program succesfully despite receiving less participation that we had targeted, due to the ongoing Hari Belia celebrations where most students themselves are involved in other Hari Belia activities. JCI Intan new trainers were also given the opportunity to conduct sessions during this program for them to train their skills and improve as a speaker.
