RB Children for Change
BUILDING OUR FUTURE TOGETHER
BUILDING OUR FUTURE TOGETHER
RB Children for Change Programme on Leadership with Sanskriti School, New Delhi - August 2020
This project is being showcased to celebrate the progressive & innovative thinking by the Student Council members of Sanskriti School,
and to provide an opportunity during the COVID lockdown for the council to connect with the school community who they wish to lead and inspire.
We hope that this will enhance the feeling of fellowship and support positive change dialogues initiated by young leaders !
Through this online workshop, the participants (16-18 years) explored self-awareness through self-reflection & creative questioning.
They articulated their own personal vision and mission statements to understand what motivates them, what are their passions, life goals, values & leadership qualities.
Through discussions, free brainstorming and systematic thinking led by RB facilitators, they created vision statements and identified areas of improvement for their school. Deep diving questions like 'Are the solutions sensitive towards all?', 'What is our motivation?', 'Who do we want to benefit?',
helped them formulate creative ideas and solutions that could help achieve their mission for the progress of the school and its people.
We envision a world where the
young are empowered to
express and lead the way in
shaping a better future.
63 young leaders from your school came together to form the new council in May 2020 .
Through a Red Balloon Leadership Workshop organised by the school these young change-makers got the chance to articulate their VISIONS FOR YOUR SCHOOL and put together specific
GOALS & CREATIVE IDEAS to improve and introduce new ways to make the school,
it's environment, student experiences, learning and growth better for everyone.
Thank you for supporting the one Vision, Goals & Ideas that you found
interesting and important for your school & its students. Remember, your choices matter.
With your support, some of these can turn into realities through collective commitment & effort.
Vision making is the ability to think about a future that often does not fully exist using
imagination & wisdom!
Example. A world where everyone
is immune to all viruses.
