WYAAP Opens Miriam College High School Chapter


World Youth Alliance Asia Pacific (WYAAP) officially opened a new Chapter last August 16, 2017 at Miriam College High School in Metro Manila, Philippines. Now known as the WYA MCHS Chapter, the organization was founded by Certified Member, Anika Vega, along with her school mates and co-WYAAP ELC graduates, Keziah Jereza, Minhwi Kang, Sophia Isabel Habana, Raya Barreiro, Kristine Leonardo, and Jan Aireen Magcaling. With the help of their MCHS teacher and now Chapter moderator, Mr. Jeffrey Zulueta, the Chapter will begin welcoming new Members from the high school community this August 2017.



The intent to open a WYA Chapter in their school came immediately after the group attended the 5th WYA Asia Pacific Emerging Leaders Conference, which was held in October last year. Fueled by the experience of being surrounded by positive and talented young leaders, the founders saw how WYA can be a community that can inspire and motivate the students of MCHS to become passionate leaders for social development. Through WYA, the Chapter founders believe that “the students from MC will not only be more socially-aware but also socially involved” especially because of WYA’s advocacy of respecting, promoting, and defending human dignity.

The WYA MCHS Chapter will be led by Jan Aireen Magcaling (Chapter Director), and will be moderated by Mr. Jeffrey Zulueta. MCHS students can expect a string of fun, enriching, and unforgettable events and projects throughout the school year.
