Cape Board launches new youth leaders forum

On 7 August, the Cape Board held a youth leaders networking event under the newly created ‘GenerationNext’ portfolio.

Some 28 ‘community-minded’ young adults came together to generate ideas for the portfolio’s aims, function and future.

Each young adult brought their own strong opinions of how this community should address the interests and concerns of their age demographic. These ideas were brought forward through a series of activities.

The evening proved inspirational for all involved as it offered these dynamic thinkers — who all wear multiple ‘community hats’ — a chance to actually voice what they think, and receive peer feedback on how to take their ideas forward in this community.

Keep an eye out for GenerationNext’s future events and official portfolio launch later in 2014.
