Youth Leadership Camp 2021

The period between end of senior six exams and opening of university lasts nine months, from mid-November to mid-August, and many parents are at a loss regarding what to do with their youth over this long period. These youth are hardly old enough to venture out on their own and at this point can only do so in carefully guided environments. They are also forming their personality, and are at a stage at which their creative energies can be best mobilized to set a firm foundation for a successful future. This exciting Youth Leadership Program is established to fill this gap.
