SCARF is excited to be working with Cameron Brown from Explore Discover Act to facilitate a year-long leadership program for SCARF Youth (young people aged 16-24 from refugee background), beginning this February 2017.
‘Let’s Lead’ has been developed in response to the needs of SCARF Youth, many of whom have expressed an interest giving back to their communities and developing their capacities as leaders.
The program will aim to develop an ability to lead in daily thoughts, words, and actions through monthly workshops. There will be a focus on both individual and collective leadership as the group explore possibilities, discover potential and act authentically.
For young people from refugee background – many of whom have experienced varying degrees of trauma, upheaval, or social isolation – the challenges of growing up may be more pronounced. With thanks to Cameron Brown from Explore Discover Act, the ‘Let’s Lead’ workshop is a meaningful program with tangible impact for SCARF’s young people, supporting them to navigate challenges, unlock their potential, feel confident and thrive.
SCARF is thrilled to have an opportunity to support and nurture the next generation of leaders and game-changers. Watch out for SCARF Youth on the world stage!
