CYD Lead by Example Campaign
by Carolina Teixeira Abreu
What is it?
o This is a permanent campaign that has the intention to facilitate the education department of each Spiritist center to keep in touch with all parents, peers, and members of our Spiritist Center. This brings to light the importance that our doctrine has in the formation of our children. The importance of the Educational department for our center. This Campaign was designed to inspire the parents, guardians and other members of our Spiritist Centers to bring all Children and Parents to the Center of all ages.
How does it work?
o For the 2017 Parent Engagement Campaign, we chose the title – “Lead by Example” Every quarter (trimester) the CYD suggests a topic, provides back up material, in English, Spanish, and Portuguese, including a PowerPoint Presentation for guidance.
o We also have some of our volunteers at the CYD available to give those talks in all 3 languages if the Spiritist Center so chooses to use one of our speakers please send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
