PRESS RELEASE – Prospective members of the Vieux Fort Leo Club were some of the youth who experienced a few days of Leadership Training through the Beckwith International Leadership Development programme, also known as “BILD”.
Our tutors, Ms Angelique Antoine and Mrs Marcia Dolor Lashley and Ms Mary Wilfred (BILD Country Manager), assisted us tremendously throughout our time at this programme.
Our BILD trainers developed our cross cultural awareness, safety, creativity, leadership skills, teamwork and effective communication. All these came in handy as the team ended its training with a successful event called the” FoS”, Festival of Sports.
Through this activity, we accommodated children from the ages of 5-12, from the environs of Laborie and Vieux-Fort, under the theme “Elevating Our Generation Through Sports”. The aim for this event was simply to put to work, everything that we, the trainees, learnt during the training sessions and have a fun filled day for every one who participated in the many activities. This event was definitely a success!
We intend to use the experiences and opportunities we gained from this exercise to motivate others to become more responsible and active members of our community.
Like the caption states: “TEAM WORK MADE THE DREAM WORK!”
