WYAAP Summer Camp 2019
June 3 - June 8
June 3 to 8, 2019 (Monday to Saturday)
G Beach Resort in Bolinao, Pangasinan (Philippines)
This 6-day learning and leisure camp by the beach is a platform for young leaders from the Asia Pacific region to expand their knowledge about human dignity and their role in development.
The summer program presents an opportunity for holistic self-development, cultural exchange, and leadership training through lectures, dialogues, mentorship, and team-building activities. In the end, we see our leaders being able to communicate articulately and effectively on the discourse of human dignity. This allows them to engage their communities in developing person-centered solutions to pressing issues.
As a camper, you will undergo the WYA Certified Training Program or the CTP. This is the premier course of the World Youth Alliance that equips youth with the knowledge and skills to be able to articulate and defend the principles of the dignity of the person within the public square. Completing the CTP also grants its graduates exclusive access to WYA’s global internship and fellowship programs, among many other regional and international opportunities.
