Between these talks, 4 workshops were conducted by the Charis Facilitators to aid process the participants’ newfound learnings from the speakers, and incorporate them with their experiences in creating an significant output. At the end of the conference, the participants were able to produce their own projects to further improve and/or add the programs that their respective schools currently have.
This one day conference was jam-packed and was full of fun and learning. The participants were also able to widen their relations as they were given a chance to know other participants from different High Schools. The Leading Leaders conference made learning fun and interactive for its participants. Huge smiles, both from the Charis facilitators and the participants could be seen from all over the room.
