Why did you join YouthCharge?
I joined YouthCharge because I wanted to be more active in helping my community create change for issues that I care about. Although YouthCharge is a virtual program, the experience I’ve had so far is still amazing and I’ve learned a lot. Since it is all virtual, at times communication can be overwhelming and difficult to manage; however, I’ve been able to find the perfect balance.
What have you learned in the program so far?
One of the most important things I’ve learned in this program so far is the importance of trust when it comes to teamwork. In the beginning, I worried a lot about not having enough control over how tasks were completed. Once I got to know my team better, I was able to let go of my desire for control and delegate tasks more. I know I can trust my team because they are all passionate about mental health and are eager to make an impact in our community.
