Highlighting students' worth through team building 

Together everyone achieves more! During the month of January youth workers from the Aġenzija Żgħażagħ South Youth Services worked with young people at St Margaret College, Middle School, Bormla by delivering team building sessions to over ten groups of students.

Young people participating in this session were actively engaged, expressed themselves, got to know more about different skills, and could work together on a task with COVID-19 measures.

This initiative, Team Worth, strived to help students identify their self-worth, get to know their classmates better, and strengthen and develop skills related to teambuilding. During the Team Worth sessions, students participated because it allowed them to express their opinions without being in a safe environment.

The teaching staff has been very supportive during these team-building sessions and were happy to get to know their students from a different perspective whilst being more aware of their needs.

Mrs Elshout, the Head of School at St Margaret College Middle school, stated; “I am grateful that Aġenzija Żgħażagħ is providing its services within the Middle school to keep on investing in our students. I feel that the skills taught from a youth work approach are important and useful for these children since they will consistently use them now and further on when they grow up”.

The presence of Aġenzija Żgħażagħ in schools is necessary to disseminate information about its programs and services, to young people and teaching staff working with young people. More importantly, Youth Worth, has been an opportunity for Agenzija Zghazagh to support young people to be empowered with skills to deal with the current pandemic as well as with life situations beyond.
