Date: 27th February to 1st March, 2017 (3 Days Workshop)
Venue: Vishwa Yuvak Kendra, Chanakyapuri, Teen Murti Road, New Delhi.
In today's rapidly changing world, the need for the infusion for young and dynamic leadership is becoming increasingly apparent and the deaf world is no exception to this crying need. The Deaf need direction and training and their talents and capabilities need channeling. These trainees in turn share their knowledge with other young Deaf people throughout the country.
The importance of Leadership Training cannot be emphasized enough. Looking forward to a better future for the Deaf in India without investing in the leadership skills of the next generation would rightly be called 'short sightedness'. The people at Organisations are concerned that the future of their organization and the Deaf community should be secure in well trained and groomed leaders. Thus Leadership Training is one of the important training programmes we have..
During the workshop, we will invite International Deaf Speakers and National professioals to talk on these issues and to advise the youth leaders how to tackle these problems in their region. There is also an open discussion among the participants to work on a project which can be implemented in the future. We will be encouraging the youth leaders to organize talks and discussions on development in their region very often.
