ARE YOU MYSELF MYWORLD MATERIAL?
IF YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES, WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU!!! AIESEC Ottawa presents the first annual Myself MyWorld program this July 2011. The Myself MyWorld Program is a two-week summer day program for teenagers in grades 11 and 12, which aims to equip youth with the tools necessary to be positive change agents. The Myself MyWorld program will instill and develop values of living diversity, entrepreneurial mindset and acting sustainably in youth through a dynamic and interactive learning process. In doing so, youth will become positive agents of change on the personal, community and global level. Two sessions will be hosted over the summer.
• Session 1: Monday July 4th to Friday July 15th • Session 2: Monday July 18th to Friday July 29th
There will be an opening ceremony to welcome all registered students on Wednesday June 29th, which will be the perfect occasion to meet their fellow student and program facilitators. The program will end with a final gala to celebrate our time together on Wednesday August 3rd. This will be a celebration with parents, student, and our strategic partners and sponsors.
