Diller Teen Fellows – International Junior Counsellor Seminar 2022

The Diller Staff Team includes two Junior Counsellors — Jonah Schwartz and Silvie Richards. Having recently graduated from the Diller programme, they are now a part of the Cape Town staff team.

In January, they partici-pated in an outstanding virtual training seminar provided by international staff. Diller Teen Fellows brought together junior counsellors from all 16 global communities, and provided them with a seminar to learn new skills and educational tools. Some of the topics included managing discussions and debates, navigating feedback, and the stages of group development.

Speaking about the seminar, Jonah said, “As a result of participating in the Junior Counsellor Training Seminar, I learned how to interact with my Fellows more effectively and create a safer, more inclusive environment for all.”

Jonah and Silvie had the opportunity to meet counsellors from all over the world, develop friendships, and share their leadership experiences. We are very proud of them, and look forward to benefitting from all the new tools and skills that they will bring back into the programme!
