The Youth Minister for Pakistan Br Rehman Javed has unveiled a busy calendar of events for senior secondary and young adults in 2016, aimed at strengthening the Lasallian mission in the country.
Br Rehman has earned widespread praise for his work in coordinating last year's Inaugural Lasallian Youth Gathering in Faisalabad, which brought together 140 students from six schools in Faisalabad, Multan and Khushpur.
The Youth Gathering in October was an opportunity for Lasallians across the schools in Pakistan to come together for a community event, given they had previously only tended to meet for sporting competitions.
This year, Br Rehman is working alongside Brothers Moon Atif, Zohaib Gill, Tabish Samuel and Waseem Shamoun to coordinate a Prefects Formation Program across all schools in Faisalabad and Multan.
A formation program will be held for all prefects on 23 April to help enhance their leadership skills, followed by another workshop on 2 October.
In keeping with the Lasallian tradition of care for the disadvantaged, Lasallian youth groups will be coordinating a fundraising campaign for outreach programs between the 24th and the 30th October.
There will also be an outreach program for Lasallian Youth Volunteers on the 18th December in Faisalabad and Multan.
To continue fostering strong ties between the different Lasallian schools, a Boys and Girls Sports Encounter will also be held from the 3rd to the 6th November.
Teachers will also benefit from a number of formation programs in 2016, including an induction day for newly appointed teachers across all Lasallian schools on 24 September in Faisalabad and Multan.
Brother Peter Ryan from Sydney will also travel to Pakistan in June to lead a formation program between 6-10 June around the theme of Association and Shared Mission for teachers in Faisalabad and Multan.
