So,- What is CALM Youth? As this weeks Guest Speaker, the wonderful Alexander Michalidis, explained, CALM is an acronym for 
Alexander, and partner "in crime", Michael J. Fortune founded CALM Ltd as Year 11 students. Now studying for a BA in Business, & majoring in Finance, Alexander's mantra is
" Opportunities present themselves when you present yourself to opportunities." 
Alexander and Michael visit Secondary Schools in the Northern Suburbs giving motivational talks to hundreds of students, encouraging students to look for good mentors, find creative outlets to expend energy, play sport, and find healthy ways to deal with  stress. Michael & Alexander do this by sharing some of their own life story and experiences, and clearly, their excellent communication skills and empathy, are being well received, as they are getting some wonderful feedback from students. 
They also offer online motivational content, Peer mentorship, AND, creative friends are designing individually designed clothing & apparel which are being rapidly sold via Instagram, such is their appeal. This has helped to bring some much needed income as CALM Ltd is totally self- funded. 
Alexander & Michael hope to expand their school -reach as their message is an empowering one. They also hope to get more people on board with their team. 
Their website will be launched soon so details will be posted here. Follow them on Instagram. CalmYouth.
Rotary Preston Youth Services Committee were delighted to present Alexander with a cheque for $500, and we as a club hope to follow their progress.
