A. The Philippine Youth Development Congress
A summit officially endorsed by the Department of Education that gathers 3rd year and 4th year High School Students as well as college students to inform them and encourage involvement in prevalent and pressing social development issues in the Philippines. Experts within the field of Economics, Social Sciences, Health and Community Development, and Environmental Awareness will give a series of talks, with the theme of ‘inclusive growth’, and become mentors for the youth with regards to their respective fields.
The goal of this summit is not just to provide exposure to the youth but also to pose them to answer the question: “What can the youth do to instill change in the Philippine Society?”
