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.

Back into the world of Longsho and TJYE. Slowly though. Last night I sat in on a final leaders' meeting before summer camp. I was asked to take a small session on personal example and leaders' behaviour on camp. We played a couple games to illustrate how one person's behaviour can impact on everyone else and then we thought about figures who've influenced us in the past. Finally we brought the issues together in discussion and drew up a list of qualities to aim for as leaders on Longsho summer camp.

Everyone left for the camp site today. I was left in the office to get on with finalising the post-camp seminar programme. The kids arrive on camp tomorrow. I'll also visit and stay overnight, to see the real purpose of the youth movement.
