Fu­ture lead­ers try out busi­ness skills

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

Young women from the YWCA Fu­ture Lead­ers group are hold­ing a garage sale to­mor­row to raise funds for the pro­gramme.

The YWCA Op Shop will fea­ture food stalls, raf­fles and a bouncy cas­tle.

‘‘The Fu­ture Lead­ers will get to prac­tise their lead­er­ship skills and also de­velop some busi­ness skills as they will be run­ning the event them­selves,’’ YWCA Fu­ture Lead­ers co­or­di­na­tor Ken­dal Collins says.

‘‘They will be or­gan­is­ing and run­ning their own stalls, donat­ing used goods, pro­mot­ing and ad­ver­tis­ing the event.

‘‘This will be a great op­por­tu­nity for them to learn new skills.’’

Kate Small, a year 13 stu­dent from One­hunga High School, is part of the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee.

‘‘I hope it will give all the girls the chance to put to work some of the lead­er­ship skills they have gained. I also hope it will help them gain con­fi­dence,’’ Small says.

Collins is urg­ing the com­mu­nity to get along to the event.

‘‘This is a great op­por­tu­nity to come and sup­port our young fu­ture lead­ers, pick up some bar­gains for yourself and help give back to the com­mu­nity,’’ she says.

Items on sale in­clude clothes, shoes, books, jew­ellery, house­hold goods, toys and fur­ni­ture.

The YWCA Op Shop will take place at the New­ton PIC Church, 2 Ed­in­burgh St, New­ton, be­tween 9am and 1pm on June 28.

All money raised will go to­wards the Fu­ture Lead­ers pro­gramme.

Fu­ture lead­ers: Ella Smith, Sarah Smeets, Ty­lah Palalagi and An­gel Tan­gianau.
