We were happy to have Matthew and Lev present their work at
’s Youth Empowering Youth (YEY) program! This organization is one of the recipients of our Step Up Virtual Walkathon 2020 at bit.ly/StepUpBurnaby2020 where every 40 dollars raised to their organization gives one BC youth an opportunity to learn and grow with peers!
During their presentation, Matthew and Lev discussed their personal story and motivation for Youth Empowering Youth to build accountability, stewardship, and recognize the unique gifts and intrinsic value of every youth through shared experiences. Topics include taking actions with small steps, the importance of attitude, and the value of failure in guiding a person to success.
Though COVID has changed their approach, the online format has opened the program across borders, such as a young girl from Nigeria sharing YEY lessons with her family. Many participants also found that it made it easier to build confidence by discussing circumstances online. We at Rotary Burnaby are happy to support an organization that guides youth and future leaders to resiliency and empowerment that is all the more important during global difficulties!
