Rainbow of Life Forces Campaign (ROLF)
A Social Corporate Project initiated and funded by CreatiVision.
Youths play a vital role in building a healthy nation. We believe that they are the major forces that can help solving the social issues in every segment of the society.
ROLF launched Orange Ribbon: Youth Social Responsibility (YSR) in year 2008. The objective of launching this campaign is to help developing the values in the young individuals and alerting them on the social and environmental issues of the community.
Orange Ribbon Campaign plays an active role in supporting the youths in organizing their social projects. The campaign provides a training ground for them to gain leadership and organizational skills and at the same time, give them a platform to interact with people from all walks of life.
This year is the 10th Anniversary of the founding of ROLF. We decide to host a major motivational program “ROLF Youths’ Inspiration & Aspiration Conference 2016” in Kuala Lumpur on 9th October.
The objective of this program is to inspire and motivate the young crowd (focusing primarily on university students) so that they make positive decisions for their future and in their lives.
There are many issues which plague our youths, day to day. They need someone who can shed some light on the directions they can take; lend an ear, understand their issues and relate experiences to them. They need guidance.
Below stated are some of the challenges the youths encounter:
- Education disparity
- Inadequate employment opportunity
- Shifting and uncertain economy
- Materialism and misguided value systems
- Lack of discipline and focus
- Obesity and other health issues
ROLF Youths’ Inspiration & Aspiration Conference 2016 is a platform where Motivating Speakers can share their own personal experience, and careers in life, to the young audience by using engaging, humorous and persuasive speech to inspire and motivate them. Motivating Speakers may give talks that inform or inspire in terms of personal development, career, community works, and health issues which in turns, help the young group to take actions and see the world or their situation from a new perspective. Speakers also cultivate enthusiasm, help the young group develop a common purpose, and inspire them to improve their life. Most importantly, speakers expose the youths on the world of possibilities in front of them.
Some notable personalities who were born ordinary but still achieve remarkable careers and wonders in life will be invited as the Motivating Speakers for the event. The program is aimed at inspiring the youths to make a difference.
ROLF have been working with students from numerous universities since year 2007: UTM, UM, UniKL, UTAR, USM, UPM, MAHSA, MONASH University, INTI International University, Taylor’s University, International Medical University, HELP University, UUM, Han Chiang College and others. We are expecting 1,000 students from the above-mentioned institutions to join the conference.
Admission is free. However, every participant is requested to register themselves before 3rd October, 2016 and bring along a gift for the underprivileged children who will join the ROLF Gold Ribbon Grant-A-Wish Campaign in the afternoon session on the same day.
