Everybody involved in Taratibu Youth Association came together for our second Leadership Retreat at the Hilton hotel in Alexandria, Virginia. The theme of this year’s retreat was engage, encourage, and empower. The retreat opened on Friday, March 30 and closed on Sunday, April 1, 2012.
Throughout the retreat we participated in learning sessions about leadership. On Friday night, we talked about joning or insulting others and its consequences. On Saturday morning, we played some fun leadership and trust games. In the afternoon, we learned about the importance of sharing and healing. The last evening of the retreat was a fun celebration, with singing and dancing.
In closing on Sunday morning, we wrapped up the retreat with a good discussion about lessons learned over the weekend and we left the retreat with a greater appreciation for everyone in the TYA family.
