Youth Leadership Seminar - Nevodia

The Youth Leadership Seminar (YLS) marks the third quarter of campers’ UYL journey.  The Youth Leadership Seminar focuses more on campers’ active discovery of their potentials and intrinsic values.  Campers are placed into a narrative, where they will have to cope with the practical issues in the context of a fictitious world. During the Seminar, Campers are to reflect on their personalities and characteristics in a team environment via various group creative tasks, and to polish their leadership styles when getting along with other peers.


Orientation Day

The Orientation Day of the Youth Leadership Seminar (YLS) was successfully held on Saturday, 24th February, 2024 at Wah Yan College, Hong Kong. The Orientation Day marks the commencement of the highlight of the Camper Journey, where Campers are introduced to a range of leadership styles and provide opportunities for delicate interpersonal interactions. Campers explored the many facets of effective leadership and gained valuable insights into the qualities and skills that define successful leaders.

Groups assembled according to cognitive biases, the theme stimulating rich discussion. Thereafter, a campus tracing activity challenged cooperation, as checkpoints throughout tested each member's contributions - strengths carefully coordinated, weaknesses constructively supported, allowing each member of the group to learn more about thyselves.

This journey bids fair to prove arduous, its fruits well-earned only through perseverance against adversity. Yet we have faith that each Camper, empowered to step fearlessly into the unknown and draw from struggle its deepest wisdom, shall ultimately emerge all the more equipped to point the way forward for others. Such is the highest promise of adventures just begun - and our dearest hope for all who undertake this transformative trek.


First Workshop

The first Youth Leadership Seminar (YLS) Workshop was held successfully on Saturday, 2nd March, 2024, with the theme of “new perspectives of self”. The Workshop took the form of a tracing activity in Hong Kong, where Campers embarked on a challenging orienteering activity on Mount Parker. With only a compass and a map, Campers navigated in the hills towards the different landmarks in the mountain.

The Campers demonstrated remarkable team spirit and perseverance throughout the activity, which culminated in Cheung Chau. Gazing upon the ephemeral loveliness of the sunset scene unfolding on the sand, Campers paused reflected introspectively on their Journey in the Union, which was followed by a sharing from different Campers about their experiences in the Union. It was emotional yet warming to see each camper to have grown so much within the 100 days of their camper journey.  We hope Campers may appreciate such swelling yet profoundly formative for team-building and personal growth that their Camper journey offers.

We trust that the tracing activities organized during the Workshop have effectively enhanced the Campers' bonding and leadership skills, while truly being an ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ experience for all. 


Second Workshop

The Second Workshop of the Youth Leadership Seminar (YLS) was successfully held in St. Paul’s College on 23rd March, 2024.

The workshop commenced with a presentation session, where each squad showcased their distinctive squad elements. These elements encompassed their squad name, slogans, gestures, logos, songs, clothing, and flags. This presentation not only provided a platform for Campers to exhibit their creativity and originality but also fostered a sense of camaraderie and pride within their respective squads.

Following the presentation, a self-reflection session ensued, offering Campers a valuable opportunity to delve into their life experiences and express gratitude for the people who hold a special place in their hearts. This segment encouraged introspection and deep contemplation, allowing Campers to recognize the significant influences and meaningful connections that have shaped their personal growth and development.
