Mock Regions Plan Real Programs
Yellow Brick Region is the first mock region to present their program. At the beginning, each region was asked to simulate a convention program for the rest of the participants. YBR has been working hard to create an experience like a MIT/AIT, or New Member, convention. Check back to see how they do!
Like Regions Like Each Other- And Not Just Like A Facebook "Like"
While ILTC is designed to help Alephs and BBGs across the order, some issues apply more specifically to a particular area. With this in mind, teens divided into groups of home regions with similar dynamics or problems to discuss issues and solutions. Teens were able to apply all the concepts and strategies taught in mock regions to their real home regions. Many found this extremely helpful and were inspired to change their regions for the better.
