New Website at wilsonbeh.com - Bye Blogger I still love you though :)

I've been blogging using this site for almost 5 years since 2006 - and I like blogger for its simplicity and features :)

However it's time for me to move on, as blogger is just not the permanent place for me.



Visit http://wilsonbeh.com proudly hosted by Exabytes. It's much more complicated as it's a domain :-)

currently-no-title will still remain as no title, still thinking whether to transfer all the posts to new website :P

Cheers for life!

BE THE CHANGE - Calling to 500 Malaysia's Young Leaders to join Youth Nation Summit 2011



I don't simply share event in my blog. If I share, it's an event which you will gain a lot & must not miss :P  

So, what's up for this time? 

I personally am very excited and look forward to this very promising summit - this is when AIESEC in Malaysia & myHarapan come together. 


WHAT?

Youth Nation Summit 2011 is an event organized under the Power of Y, an initiative that incorporates the best of youth leadership, practical industry knowledge and experience through a series of events and programs.


WHO? 

A platform that gathers 500 Malaysian Youth Leaders who are passionate and dedicated to making positive changes in their communities and in the world. 


HIGHLIGHTS? 

Some of the highlights of the summit are Sustainability Expo, Leadership Activation, Skills Workshops, Youth to Business Forum, Youth to Government Forum, Youth Defined CSR Programs and Project Pitching where 20 selected youth leaders pitch their community-development initiatives for financial supports (training for pitching will be provided to the selected youth leaders prior to the summit).


DETAILS OF THE SUMMIT 

Date: 28th – 31st May 2011
Venue: University of Malaya
Delegate fee: Fully Sponsored (FREE)
Application Form: Download from www.aiesec.my/YNSummit 
Application Deadline: 10 May 2011, 11.59PM (GMT +8) 


ABOUT THE ORGANIZERS 

AIESEC is the world‟s largest youth-run organization with over 60 years of experience in developing high-potential youths into global-minded responsible leaders. Focused on providing a platform for youth leadership development, AIESEC enables its members the opportunity to participate in international internships, experience leadership and interact with a global network to support their development. For more information on AIESEC, visit http://www.aiesec.my/.

myHarapan [“my hope” or “harapan ku”] is a Youth Trust Foundation that supports youth and youth projects that contribute to the social economy of Malaysia by providing platforms and opportunities. Much has been said about nurturing the youth as future leaders, but these "future leaders" are very often not given the opportunity to voice out their views, to develop their social initiative projects, for the betterment of our country. This is where myHarapan steps in. For more information on myHarapan, visit http://myharapan.org/
