Max Potential students wow halfway through

Posted on Tuesday, 28 July 2015

The Canterbury-Bankstown Max Potential leadership program is on the home run with participants presenting their personal expression project at a breakfast workshop at Canterbury League Club.

Eleven weeks ago 13 students from three different local high schools – Kingsgrove North High School, Canterbury Boys High School and Sir Joseph Banks – embarked on the personal development and leadership program. For many, there have been positive changes on how they overcome daily challenges within their lives.

As part of the program participants were also invited to present a personal piece which showcased their leadership journey so far. Each young adult stepped up to the plate and accepted the challenge even though some of them have done never done public speaking before. Participants were very creative and produced videos, paintings, sang, sewed a dress and there was even a few rap songs.

In the last third of the program, young adults will come up with a community service project and implement it within their local community over the next six weeks. Their results and efforts will be presented at the 2015 Canterbury-Bankstown Max Potential Showcase on Wednesday 16th September at Canterbury League Club from 5pm onwards; members of the public interested in the program are invited to attend on the night.

Canterbury is a major sponsor of this year’s Canterbury-Bankstown Max Potential program with a donation of $25,000 which was used to train three mentors and cover program costs and catering.
