Vancouver, (Canada) -- Preparing Leaders For Tomorrow

A leadership course at Crestwell Center, which ran from January to the end of May, was directed towards girls from the ages of 14 to 16. Professionals from various fields shared their experiences and offered considerations on the virtues needed for roles of leadership, happiness and the meaning of life, the dignity of the human person, the capacity to think critically, and the importance of focusing clearly on one’s goals.

After each talk a working session was held. The last sessions were dedicated to preparing a service project, since leadership as service, and giving as the supreme expression of the person, especially in the case of a woman, as St. Josemaria taught, are some of the basic principals that gave direction to the course.

In one of the classes, participants reflected on the virtue of modesty as an important element in preserving human dignity. With the conviction that modesty and elegance are perfectly compatible, a fashion show was organized with the aim of promoting a true concept of elegance.
