Take a Lead Seminar

[G2:5112]Our mission is to develop and implement a programme of holistic formation for young people. This was put into practice during the last ‘Take a Lead’ weekend seminar organised by SPYS in November 2009.

Every year, this seminar takes place at Savio College, in Dingli, and this year attracted eighteen participants coming from different age groups and backgrounds. One of the main aims of this weekend seminar, is to help young people understand better their own personality which would then lead them to understand better and enhance their relationships with others. Upon arrival, the participants are asked to take the Myers-Briggs personality test, which is a questionnaire designed to measure psychological preferences in how people perceive the world and make decisions. This sets the basis for the whole weekend as participants are able to relate the theory presented to their own personality traits that result from the test.

The seminar also focuses on different types of leadership that we encounter in every day life. Every session is delivered through various types of media following the non-formal learning approach. This involves group discussions, role playing, video forums, and outdoor activities in Buskett.
