Indonesia: Catholic Youth to organize leadership training to improve creative economy and business work unit skills

The Catholic Youth Center board and advanced leadership training committee met with Bishop Silvester San of the Denpasar diocese.

The Catholic Youth will hold an advanced leadership training (KKL) in Bali, Indonesia, from December 2 to 4.

The goal of the course is to improve the business work units and business incubators as parts of the organization's ecosystem. 

The chairman of the organization, Stefanus Asat Gusma, said that this year's KKL was an opportunity to increase the clustering of cadres who work in the creative economy and build business work units. 

"Through this KKL, Catholic Youth aims to increase the potential of cadres involved in creative industries, micro, small, and medium enterprises (UMKM), as a means of improving the organization's ecosystem," Gusma told RVA News. 

Gusma said that since the Catholic Youth started up earlier this year, they have quickly formed a group based on cadre clustering. 

This includes professionals, legislators, and public servants; the State Civil Apparatus (ASN); UMKM actors; the creative industries; entrepreneurs; academics; journalists and state-owned enterprises (BUMN).

This year's KKL will be organized to strengthen the Catholic Youth cadres' creative economy, ecology, and business work units, said Gusma, adding that the Catholic Youth Central Board will be the animator and supervisor of this work unit as a representation of the organization's mission to "reborn and flourish." 

"This is also the reason behind the creation of the KKL because, apart from the Congressional mandate, Bali is considered to be a place of inspiration for the development of creative economy applications for both BUMN and UMKMs," said Gusma. 

Bishop Silvester San of Denpasar, Governor I Wayan Koster of Bali, and representatives from different ministries will all be at the KKL.

Participants will also be shown some of the best Catholic Youth products, such as the Connected Village App, Petra Natural, and a few UMKM products, in addition to the training. 

Gusma hoped that the KKL would reach its "ultimate goal," which was to strengthen the potential and resources of cadres in the creative economy and UMKM business work units, as well as to change Catholic youth so that they could be reborn and grow even more.

“The post-KKL central management will invigorate the ecosystem of this company's work unit. As a result, it is not limited to discussions in workshops or webinars, but rather generates recommendations for additional real-world work," Gusma concluded.

The Indonesian Catholic youth is a national communal group consisting of Catholic youth (ages 17–45). This group was started on November 15, 1945, and made official at the Indonesian Catholic Political Party Congress in Surakarta on December 8, 1945.-Kasmir Nema
