WYA Iloilo Chapter Celebrates Solidarity

ILOILO CITY, JUNE 15, 2018–The World Youth Alliance Iloilo Chapter successfully held their first Solidarity Night with the theme Starry, Starry Night. The event, held at LOCO Headquarters in Smallville, Iloilo City, Philippines, was attended by 30 Certified WYA Members of the chapter.

The gathering was organized by the chapter to bring together Certified WYA Members from different Certified Training Program (CTP) batches over the years. The CTP is the premier training course offered by WYA that covers a collection of texts that provide the philosophical underpinnings for the mission of WYA.
