2017 Holiday Chapter Activities and Fall Ambassador Training
The end of November and December came with lots to be thankful for, holiday cheer, and leadership development for Best Buddies Indiana. Below is a recap of our holiday activities and the fall ambassador training!
Our Best Buddies Indiana chapters spent November and December getting into the holiday spirit. Many buddy Thanksgiving dinners were had and some were even made from scratch! Thank you notes were written to teachers and supporters and signs of what our participants are thankful for hang in school hallways. Our chapters are also celebrating successful fall semesters by caroling, decorating Christmas trees and cookies. We have loved watching these friendships grow with all the creative ideas our chapters have come up with this semester!
On Saturday, November 18th, Best Buddies Indiana hosted its Fall Ambassador Training. Seven participants spent time learning about Best Buddies more in-depth, the components of writing a successful speech, and how to advocate for themselves and others.
The training culminated in participants giving their speeches in front of the group. Participants did an excellent job challenging themselves and delivered some wonderful speeches! Special thank you to the volunteer speech coaches who offered their time on a Saturday and encouraged our ambassadors to do their best.
The end of the fall semester has been one for the books!
