The SELL Programme at Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, South- South Nigeria took place and it was successful. Mary and Beji both members of the Resource Team co-facilitated the programme. Two of the six units of SELL were explored; Self Awareness and Leadership units. For the number of days that the programme was delivered, 23rd – 28th February, 2014, the work was done in the evenings; from 4pm to 8pm. According to Mary and Beji, they had 28 consistent participant; 9 ladies and 19 gents. Going to Yenagoa was a new experience for the facilitators; they share that it was a different weather from what they are used to and the food was also a bit different. They adopted to all these changes quickly because the people were friendly to them. From the Participants evaluation, they are asking that the team to return to Yenagoa again soon to share the other units of the programme with. Their request is being strengthened by the frequent calls we received from them since the team returned to our work place in Bauchi. We thank Fr. Kevin O’Hara for inviting us to work with the young people of Yenagoa, Bayelsa State.
