WYA Asia Pacific welcomes WYA AdZU Chapter

Last September 20, the World Youth Alliance Chapter in the Ateneo de Zamboanga University (AdZU) has been officially accredited by the Office of Student Affairs. WYA Asia Pacific welcomes the addition of a new Chapter to further promote and defend human dignity in the university and local levels. 

WYA Asia Pacific Summer Camp graduates Rogin Christ Eribal, Jennifer Reyes Tibayan, Joseph Yeo and Milarose Barraca will be leading the activities of the Chapter. “I feel very happy and excited, because finally the chapter was accredited. The WYA Chapter in our university is an essential body in helping us have a prosperous and valued community in our school,” Rogin Christ Eribal, Chapter President, shares.

“Our Chapter seeks to build a strong foundation as an early plan. It includes conducting trainings and team building activities that aims to build solidarity among the members. We also aim to conduct Track A Trainings in our school to produce more Track A Accredited members,” Rogin adds.

WYAAP warmly welcomes the formation of the WYA AdZU Club. The WYAAP regional staff are very excited for the upcoming projects of the Chapter. Through the Chapter, WYA Asia Pacific and the founding officers hope to promote greater awareness among young people on their human dignity.

The Chapter will also be sending delegates to the 3rd WYAAP Emerging Leaders Conference.
