Future Leaders is a program offered to teenagers which include various activities such artistic projects, helping the community, getting involved in politics, taking part of a show, hosting events, going on fun outings or even simply spending a night playing board games and conversing with the coordinators.
This year, the Future Leaders have taken part of our annual DBYLC Coffee House events, as both spectators and, for some, active performers. The youth group has met with Pablo Rodriguez, an important member of parliament, and have had the opportunity to ask him questions and talk with him. They have also contributed to an artistic mural being created in the Future Leaders room. The teenagers are currently in the process of preparing for the annual Don Bosco Youth Leadership Festival where they will be featured as models for the fashion portion of the show. Finally, to celebrate the end of the year, certain outings are currently being discussed as potential activities for the program such as an outing to Old Montreal as well as a small trip to Ottawa to visit the Parliament of Canada. Finally, if time permits, the Future Leaders will have the opportunity to organize and host a ‘‘Movie in Parking Lot’’ event, open to all the other programs of the DBYLC.
