FLC Countdown: 7 Days, Updates
With only just over a week before the conference, the volunteer orientation begins tomorrow. At this 5 hour long meeting, the local volunteers will be oriented to all their responsibilities for the conference. More specific details on the volunteers’ work will be revealed at another orientation directly before the conference, which begins on August 7. The time until then promises many challenges for the SLU team. Work on the video of the conference documentary has made some notable progress. The interviews with the SLU leaders are almost completed, and Tom is currently working on slides to correspond with the main sessions delivered by prominent Sri Lankans. The profile of Prashan, Sri Lanka Unites’s president, is completed and it will be sent to CBS for their upcoming series, Ripple Effect. This series will document young people achieving positive change around the world.
