Leadership Training for School Children- DREAM Kannur

The Drug Rehabilitation Education and Mentoring (DREAM) programme team in Kannur organised a leadership training programme for school students named ‘VOYAGER 2K23’. The two-day residential training took place on 18-19 February 2023 at Don Bosco Arts and Science College Angadikadavu and was attended by 95 students from various schools in Kannur district. During the training, the students were taught leadership skills and educated on substance abuse, its personal and social consequences, and more. The trained students will act as “ambassadors” and take the lead in raising awareness about substance abuse and its harmful effects, with the view to prevent substance abuse in their respective schools.

The programme was inaugurated by Mr. Sajeev PB (Circle Inspector, Karikottakari) and presided over by Fr.  Sojan Pananchickal (District Director, DREAM Kannur). The keynote address was delivered by Adv.  Sunny Joseph (MLA, Peravoor constituency).

The inaugural ceremony was followed by icebreaking activities and classes on leadership skills.

The DREAM programme team in Kannur has taken the initiative to equip students with the skills and knowledge to prevent substance abuse. This effort is a step towards creating a healthier and safer community, in the hope that these trained student leaders will become effective peer influencers in their schools.
