Young Leaders Day Out

DSCF4088At the end of school holidays in early February, the older youth from CAIJ were treated to a fabulous day- out at the military recreation centre, located a short distance from the Corumbá – Bolivia border.

The day started with an evaluation/reflection exercise on their experience as young leaders and ways they could improve.  This was then followed by some team building games, churrascarias for lunch, a fun afternoon in the swimming pool, some football, volleyball and hanging out in the shade.  If ever you are in Corumbá, then this is a great place to visit for rest and relaxation, and of course, to cool down when the temperatures are soaring above 35 degrees Celsius.

If you’re you going to spend time with young people then a great place to start is a university.  Under the superb guidance of Samila and Tais, I was given an extensive tour comprising the library, various departments like psychology where Samila did her masters, the chaplaincy office, gym and swimming pool. The highlight for the girls, well mine too, was their popular radio station, 91.5 FM, which brought back lots of fun memories of my radio days in Trinidad.
