The Tibetan Jewish Youth Exchange (TJYE) was established to enhance the cultural identity of both Jewish & Tibetan youth through informal education & to forge links between the Jewish & Tibetan diaspora communities. We actively help these communities' youth movements to empower young people, that they can become leaders & make a difference. This blog will record the continuing work of the project's volunteers, including Jewish volunteers in India & Tibetan leaders on exchange in the UK.

Thursday - Phantok and Namsay went by themselves to the school... there was a long delay leaving until it clashed with another commitment. They reported back that the school principal would be meeting with his executive committee to discuss the issue of kids going on camp.

Friday and today - As Longsho representatives from Darjeeling and Deckyiling are not available until camp (first week of June) I agreed to run a trial 'Running a Movement Office' seminar for Namsay and Phantok over the next three weeks. All three of us can then run it for the new workers and the regional representatives once camp is over. Drew up the schedule and planned Monday's sessions in full. We'll be working every day, mostly in the afternoons but some full days as well. Have split the seminar into three sections:

1. Who we are, where we're going and why?
2. Making it work - an introduction to office skills; and
3. Movement work

I've split it evenly, one week per section. We start tomorrow with an introduction to the seminar and a session on 'what is Longsho?'.
