Workshop Block 1
|Keys for Key Club: Overcoming Obstacles||Join Islem Habila and Yakine Nawi, founders of Key Club Gabes Coast in Tunisia, as they guide you through their Key Club journey. In this workshop, you will get tips on how to manage obstacles that clubs generally face and the importance of improving soft skills along the way.|
|Presenters:||Messages from the presenters: “A group of my friends and I founded Key Club Gabes Coast — the first key club in North Africa and the Middle East — in the summer of 2021. It is never easy to start a club from nothing and with no external support, but we made it! Now, KCGC is a successful club! We achieved so much and will continue reaching new heights with our club. Key Club has built such a tight community that we consider it our second family. It helped us all become the leaders we are today. We will continue serving through passion and make our community better!” ~Islem Habila and Yakine Nawi, Key Club Gabes Coast, Tunisia.|
