Summer of fun

Team building with pallets and planks, Salem-style
Team building with pallets and planks, Salem-style

It gets hot here in the summer, and young people need to find constructive ways to chill out, have some fun and survive the heat. 

This summer, Salem Social Village put on a Youth Leadership Camp over two days to provide not only a lot of fun, but also a significant purpose by training young people in leadership-related topics. And when we say training, that's activity-based learning with a whole lot of time for reflection and discussion, not the 'lecture and take lots of notes' approach.

Team-building activities and seminars were supplemented, Salem Social Village style, with some experiential learning initiatives focussed on raising awareness of social issues. This included 'Living on wheels' simulation, with the young people sent out into the city with a wheelchair to get a first hand experience of just how hard it is being disabled. They also went through our AIDS Xperience to understand the lives of those at risk of HIV/AIDS infection, and how normal people can be put at risk.

This was the highlight of the summer at Salem, but there was so much else going on too, including a rock concert attended by over 700 people - but that will have to wait until next time.

Thanks again from everyone at Salem for your support in helping us to continue challenging discrimination, training future leaders, and bringing change to society here. It can be a lot of fun, but it's always purposeful.
