LEAD TZ 2015

Zinduka and the USAWA Committee are proud to present our first annual LEAD (Leadership Experience and Development) TZ National Youth Conference! If you have completed or plan to complete a local youth conference with secondary school students you are eligible to bring your students to this national conference in Iringa on January 19-23.

Here is how you apply:

Creatively share your success story with us (story, video, pictures, recording, etc). We know that at most youth conferences students learn things and then bring what they have learned back to their communities. We want to hear about how your student group did this community outreach. Did your students teach their peers in a creative way? Give a performance? Paint a mural? LEAD TZ is focused on educating and empowering future community leaders, so we want to see how your students have already shown potential for this. Along with your success story we need the following information:

·       Student information: how many students, number of boys and girls, and ages/forms

·       Counterpart information: who is it, why are they an exceptional counterpart, what would they be willing to teach at the conference

·       Future plans: how and why would information from this conference be brought back to your community, why does your community need this

Applications are due November 30, 2014. We will accept up to 8 volunteers, along with their counterparts and students. Please take advantage of this amazing opportunity! If you have questions, talk to Emily (ehoppes@gmail.com, 0786038585) or anyone on the USAWA committee.
