FOLLOW YOUR DREAMS: LVF YOUTH HELPING YOUTH ROADTRIPS IN NEGROS.
1,790 students from nine (9) different schools in Negros Occ. were given workshops on July 22-29, by 12 LVF youth helping youth facilitators with 3 Salesian Sisters. One student said, “We have to make good our lives because we are confronted with a 10-year old facilitator who has a direction in her life.” The attendees expressed the desire to have sessions like these done regularly in their schools as to inspire them to visualize and realize their dreams. Colegio Sta Ana de Victorias co-financed the LVF road trips to Negros. Twenty (20) CSAV students signified interest in volunteering as co-facilitators to other schools and were trained to co-facilitate the conference workshop. Their great interest was very evident in the manner they spoke in front of the assembly, freely giving their views and opinions.
