Inspired by the American science teacher Evren Gunduz, who established the principle of positive leadership, the "My Talent Academy" seminar is designed to help young people identify their talents and build their future through the Four Seasons Academy (4SA) programme. Banque de Luxembourg is supporting it for the fifth year running.
A tailor-made programme for 15-19 year-olds
The Four Seasons Academy programme is for young people aged between 15 and 19, who are starting to look at the future and are interested in finding a project in harmony with their talents and motivation. Through monthly workshops, the aim is to stimulate their curiosity, encourage them to explore their possibilities, and show them that they can have a positive impact on the world. In a comfortable space where they can learn more about themselves, about others, and about their environment, participants will be able to reflect on how they can play an active role rather than just putting up with things.
A structured approach
From October to May, monthly meetings will deal with a wide range of themes including, to mention just a few: stress management, behaviour, self-confidence, motivation and communication. Each 3-hour session, in French, takes the form of a short conceptual presentation to the whole group followed by role-play situations and practical games and exercises in break-out groups, to enhance understanding and assimilation of the theory.
At the end of the course, participants have the option of rounding off the experience at a summer camp in the United States. Fluent French and at least intermediate English (B1 minimum) are prerequisites.
A caring bank
Indebted to the country which provides the framework for its development, Banque de Luxembourg is committed to playing its part in society. Encouraging young people to face their future with greater confidence, in a constantly changing world, reflects the Bank's caring approach to the rising generation.
In this context, in addition to this partnership, it offers dedicated support programmes for the rising generation who will eventually take their place in the family business.
