Nalanda youths elect new leaders

Nalanda youths on Members' Day.

Nalanda youths gathered for their Members’ Day in late July.

On Sunday 24 July, young Nalandians came together for their Members’ Meeting at the Youth Centre in Sri Serdang.  The purpose of that meeting was to update members on the progress of Nalanda Youth Centre over the past year, and to discuss its future programmes.  Another important agenda was the re-election of office-bearers for the next 12-month term.

At the gathering, Youth Leader Bro. Disheng encouraged all members to enhance individual leadership ability and develop effective communication skills.  He was happy to note that Nalandian youths are able to work seamlessly and harmoniously, resulting in successful programmes and activities in the past.  On behalf of all youths, he also thanked the mentors, teachers, and all benefactors for their continuous support since the inception of Nalanda Youth Centre.
