PURPOSE OF YOUR BLOG POST
The main purpose of your blog post is to inspire fellow peers. As introduced at the beginning of this term, there are three pillars which constitute the FCSS-FESC’s Initiate Affiliate Programme: Network, Inspire, Expand. Your blog post shall help fulfill the Inspire pillar by increasing youth enthusiasm in creating sustainable and successful initiatives. Additionally, be aware that other demographics will read your blog post. For instance, parents will read it, so your blog post must outline the pros and cons of high school students joining your type of youth-run organization (i.e. charitable, educational, etc.) from the perspective of a parent or guardian. Put a lot of thought into what you would like to share and be mindful that you will inspire many readers when writing your blog post.
