Team building is a collective term for various types of activities used to enhance social relations and define roles within teams, often involving collaborative tasks. It is one of the most widely used group-development activities and it can be applied in various places to improve efficiency, for instance, in school classes. Its aim is to build effective working relationships, finding solutions to team problems and aligning around goals.
Today, 4 February 2019, in the third week of the Student Leadership Programme, a session based on team building was conducted at Patten College (Girls) which is a private secondary college situated at Rose Hill. The idea and motive behind this session were to inculcate the students of Grade 10 of the importance of team building. While being part of a team can be beneficial based on the quotation “United we stand, divided we fall”, building the proper environment and sustaining team spirit are primordial to leaders.

We have immense pleasure to announce YUVA President Krishna Athal’s participation as Speaker at the Symposium at Middlesex University (Mauritius Branch).
The MDX Media Cluster, a student-led society at the university, is organising a symposium with theme “The Global Community: Building The Next Step” on Saturday 20th February 2016 from 10:00 until 13:00.
We live in a world where we’ve ended up living in a system, in a cycle. As the world’s problems become more global in reach, how can people’s domain of altruism be extended accordingly? What concrete steps can be taken to strengthen the bonds of the community?
The purpose of this event is to act as a catalyst for the youth, to change our mind-set and face the truth as it is. As well, this event aims at impacting on our individual lives in light of dynamic global pressures, with calls to action over the next few years and beyond.
The symposium shall adopt a similar style to the successful and energetic style format of TEDx events with a mix of short thought-provoking clips and interventions, probing interactive talks along with a lively audience.
The organising body aims to have a good cross cutting panel of speakers representing various fields related to the theme of the symposium, with different point of views as well. The latter shall normally consist of a maximum of four orators.
Date and Time
10:00 – 13:00 on Saturday, February 20, 2016
The organising body aims to attract a good cross section of youngsters aged between 17 and 25 inclusive. The symposium will be open to the general public as long as they fit in the targeted age group.
