YLS Volunteers with Stay in School Initiative
This blog was posted on behalf of YLS General Member Denise M. Thomas, GE Healthcare.
The Stay in School Initiative was an exciting and rewarding volunteer opportunity! Each of the students displayed enthusiasm and an eagerness to learn from this event. Kudos to the both the students and coordinators for using their Saturday morning towards personal and professional development.
I personally gained from the “brag ball” exercise. All of the attendees, including the volunteers and students, formed a circle and passed a ball to someone who they were impacted by or impressed with while publicly acknowledging them to the entire group.
I strongly encourage all Young Leaders Society (YLS) members to continue supporting future related events!
