A New Beginning

With the Jade Ribbon Youth Council gathering for the first time this year, our first meeting focused on important (but fun!) introductions and an overview for the year. The sixteen councilmembers, a diverse group of both returning and new students, gave brief and enjoyable presentations about their backgrounds, interests, and aspirations. Though some of us had never met before, the conference room was a place where everyone was open and friendly, sharing jokes and laughter. After the presentations, in which we learned of hair-eating cows and Wikipedia-based games, we played an exciting name game involving SAT vocabulary. The council then reviewed the basic logistics for future meetings (snacks are a must!) and our hepatitis B knowledge. Naturally, with many of the councilmembers having attend the Youth Leadership Conference, everyone was ready to spread awareness and accurate information. We concluded the meeting with an outline of our events for the upcoming year and even fit in a quick brainstorm for other potential activities. Expect to see successful events like the Peter and the Wolf storytime, B Inspired Multimedia Contest, and Hepatitis B Awareness Week return this year and look out for exciting, new activities as well. Having broken the ice early and with ideas being tossed around already, the JRYC is off to a great start to the new year.

Until next time,
