“We worry what a child will become tomorrow,
yet we forget he is someone today.”
– Stacia Tauscher
The Youth of Today.
Not only The Leaders of Tomorrow.
They are also The Leaders of Today.
So it’s important to not only educate students, but to also empower them.
To instill them with the confidence, and courage, to pursue their dreams.
To let them know that it’s OK to make mistakes, and failure is just a part of the process.
To ultimately provide them with opportunities to learn, grow and succeed.
For example, Krian Sethi’s “i can” movement is doing wonders in India and all over the world.
She’s not only teaching students course subjects.
She’s empowering them to make a difference by learning about current issues, where students then organize initiatives to help the cause (i.e. launching campaigns, educating parents, etc.).
She’s showing them that they are more than capable of being The Leaders of Today – no matter what age.
Experiences like these are truly priceless, especially when you’re younger.
So when I watched the “Ontario Student Leadership Conference (OSLC) 2010 – Community Cares Video – Life Changing” video (watch below), it not only put a smile on my face, it was also very inspiring.
It was inspiring to see all these students share various quotes and messages of hope, leadership, success and GREATness.
I’ve never attended or been involved with the OSLC.
But if this video is any indication, the they’re sharing in the mission to not only educate students, but to also empower them to become The Leaders of Today.
What do you think?
Have you worked with or attended the OSLC or similar conferences?
