Issue 18 | Winter 2016 what’s inside CLEAN WATER FOR TOGO MEET LEADERSHIP COURSE STUDENTS: Michael & Max NEW AT LAUNCH: YU’s INTERN PROGRAM AND MORE... Youth Unlimited (Toronto YFC)

Water forTogoIt took them 2 years, 17 different fundraisers and lots of perseverance, but they did it! Elise and Olivia launched their idea (Water The Earth With Love)SOLaIDnd raised the $8,500 needed SOLID to build a well in Togo, Africa through Gain International. Now a whole lot more people (including over 200 children) have access to clean drinking water. Yay!“MY greatest lesson fromLAUNCH: Courage. Throughoutthis entire“ M U LT I P LY ” O V E R L AY experience my F O R “ M U LT I P LY ” O V E R L AY Above: Coach Monica with Olivia and Eliseknowledge of global issues has “ raising funds at Today’s Teens Conferenceincreased, but to be able to helprequires courage, and being shycan make it hard to take a stand. Being a part of LAUNCH has drasticallychanged that. Raising money to provide clean drinking water was moreimportant to me than anything that could go wrong as Elise and I spoke infront of large audiences... Our coach Monica asked us where [we] wantedto grow and I chose courage... Monica encouraged me to make a list ofcourageous things I do, and just that simple act motivated me and pushedme as I took chances each day. Although I still get afraid, speaking to newpeople isn’t as hard for me, and I am more confident in myself to take onnew challenges, no matter the risk. ~ Olivia2 :: LAUNCH News

LAUNCH is a humbling experience that grounds young leaders. “ It’s easy to think we can tackle challenges and goals on our own, but LAUNCH shows us how much we need God and the people He works through to accomplish anything. The monthly meetups are perfectly timed so I am made to break away from my heavily scheduled life and really consider how each activity is aligned with my goal/dream. Although it is a delicate balance of discipline and“relationship, it has felt more like an act of someone intentionally caring for me where there is really no obligation (and that’s what makes LAUNCH coaching so wonderful!) ~ LAUNCHee Justina (Coach: Judy) (Pictured with Lee, our Coaching Coordinator) Did you know...? LAUNCH accepts applications for young people who want to maximize an existing leadership opportunity. Are you on Student Council or leading a small group or Captain of your sports team? A LAUNCH Coach could help you maximize that opportunity for God’s glory! Apply today at LAUNCH News :: 3

Leadership Course Students Meet Michael and Max (LAUNCH Leadership Course Students) and their co-leader Farshad. For their final Leadership Course project, Michael and Max have been meeting with their Coach (Andy) to launch Project 0 to100. Through this project they hope to build 5 classrooms in developing nations, provide food for those students for 5 years, and build 5 wells for clean drinking water in those communities. Having started with $0 they hope to raise the $100K needed to make this dream a reality. All their efforts are funneled through Free The Children who will also help realize the final construction plans. Help these students get from 0 to100 real quick: Visit them on Facebook.
