Becoming Better Leaders At CLTC 4
Posted on 07/07/2014 @ 12:40 AM
Hi, I’m Lindsey Levy and I’m from Ko’ach BBG #2529 in DC Council, NRE #54. My name is Rachel Garner and I’m in Sabbaba BBG #2524 in Connecticut Valley Region #17. We are in the mock chapter, Hineini BBG #4373 and have been having an amazing time here at CLTC 4! Just like at home, we have chapter meetings all the time during which we discuss chapter business such as planning programs and learning how to make our chapters at home so much better. We both found the programming education extremely helpful and can’t wait to put in use when the programming year starts. Knowing the basics of successful programming has really changed our BBYO experience for the better, and has made us feel more comfortable leading groups for future events. We have never felt more confident in our abilities to be leaders in the organization that we love. In addition to the educational aspects of CLTC we have never felt more connected to our sister BBGs. Neither of us expected to make such strong bonds so quickly, but our chapter instantly clicked in an inexplicable way. We are definitely a spirited chapter and have burst out in chapter cheer circles combining cheers from home, BBYO, and some even made up on the spot, which has been an incredible bonding experience for all of us. Not only do we cheer as loud we possibly can, Shira is another place for us to yell, scream, and bond over Jewish, and other well-known songs as a chapter and as a CLTC community. With everyone dancing, swaying, and singing it’s impossible to feel disconnected from your sister BBGs and brother Alephs. Over all, CLTC has been a life changing experience for both of us and we are not looking forward to leaving next week! Submitted with undying love for CLTC 4 2014, we forever remain, Rachel Elizabeth Garner and Lindsey Claire Levy, two damn proud BBGs!
