AVEC took the opportunity to speak to over ninety one students of Don Bosco High School, Matunga STD X A/B over a two session period on the theme "Living by a Value Compass". Fr. Glenford Lowe, Director of AVEC took the students through a personal soul searching journey that focused on four main points: Listening Attentively, Revisiting our Past, Reorganizing our Future, and Writing our Problems on the Sand.
 The entire session was very interactive and the students really participated whole heartedly in the program. With a lot of daily life examples of young people, coupled with a lot of humour and yet challenging questions, the students spent the entire afternoon on the 'NOW' moment of the lives, connecting the Dots on the Spiral of their past life, Reorganizing themselves on their wheel of life and finally jotting down their stressful and problematic moments in life. The students also took time to share a part of their own personal journey: their successes, failures, stresses and fears. It was a good opportunity to realize that we are all on the same road to live lives more meaningfully and purposefully.
 A number of students took the time to write their comments in the AVEC log book:
