UNLEASH 2012...Branding Young Hearts | Participation Guideline | Resource Persons | Venue/Venue Description...

UNLEASH 2012: An educational charity project initiated by WECCOSA.

About Us
WECCOSA is a body comprising of ex-students of the Wesley College of Science, Ibadan (2001 Set). We are a group of dynamic and positive minded youths committed to developing and mentoring young minds to take their place in the future. Our focal point is inspiring and helping secondary school students to pursue lofty ambitions built upon inestimable character and propelled by sound education.
With this mandate, the body in partnership with other passionate youth groups organizes special workshops, trainings, personality commentaries, expositions and inspiring seminars, which will put these young minds on the right platform to build the Nigeria of our dream.

Our Initiative/Project
To consolidate on our drive to building total and excellent young individuals, the group has come up with another project, targeted at inspiring and empowering the upcoming generation to pursue their promising dreams. The project tagged 'Unleash 2012' will involve public and private schools in different local government areas in Ibadan. The programme will take the form
of talk on careers, sex and relationship, and a practical workshop on skills acquisition.
The highpoint of the programme however, will be the literature reading/leadership essay competition, which shall take place on the final day of the 2-day event. The literature reading/leadership essay competition is an expanded version of the reading competition that was organized in 2008 by WECCOSA, and won by International School Ibadan (I.S.I). The program in 2008 was sponsored by reputable publishing houses like Heinemann Books, Evans, and we do not expect less in this edition. The programme will come up on the 1st and 2nd of June, 2012

This programme has as part of its objectives the following:
·    To revive the ardent reading culture that is increasingly fading away from our schools. This body believes in the Back2Book project of President Goodluck Jonathan.
·    To create a learning platform through our resourceful seminars, workshops, and life coaching series for students to be mentally empowered.
·    To inspire the upcoming generation to pursue lofty ambitions, to be achieved by good character and positive education.
·    To stir the leadership and problem solving skills inherent in young minds, qualities they would require as they tackle life challenges in the nearest future.
·    To corroborate the efforts of government, teachers, and educational administrators by providing the students with the skills not usually, or rarely taught in schools. Skills such as decision making, peer pressure management, prioritization, and value clarification.
