Leading the way

At CanTeen, young people are given responsibility within their local branch, the aim for CanTeen is always to create positive opportunities for young people when cancer interrupts their lives.

Cancer can put on hold a lot in a young person’s life and means they miss chances at school, work or extra-curricular activities. For those young people who want to improve their leadership skills, CanTeen holds a leadership training course and supports each person through an individual leadership plan.

Here’s what Pippa from Canterbury has to say about this opportunity:

“The most important thing I learned on this weekend was the importance of being aware. Aware of yourself, of others, and of the group as a whole. As with any CanTeen event, the good times rolled and by the end of the weekend, people who had been strangers at the start were comfortable with sharing their thoughts and feelings with the group. This open communication is essential in leadership.”
