WYAAP, YouthLEAD PH partner for youth leadership convention

On its third year, WYA Asia Pacific will once again partner with YouthLEAD Philippines for the Third Philippine I Transform! Young Leaders Conference #LuzonWAve on September 19 to 22, 2014 in Baguio City, Philippines. WYAAP invites all Filipino youth to join the conference with the theme Paraiso: Our Home, The New Frontier.

This year’s conference aims to equip youth participants with the global and national situationer on environment and climate change through 12 plenary resource speakers and interactive activities. Through the Kabatan (Youth) Fair, youth delegates will also get the chance to pitch their project proposals to a set of judges and the winner get the chance to be awarded with a PhP 20,000.00 grant. Other contests include essay writing, video production, and poster making.

WYA Asia Pacific Regional Director Lord Pomperada and Regional Interns Satria Alchatib, Takuma Masamune, Manh Dat and Neil Soria will be present during the entire duration of the convention. Lord will speak during the Opening Ceremonies of the Convention while international interns Satria, Takuma and Manh will be part of the foreign observers panel and will speak at the Closing Ceremonies. There will also be a WYA Booth, where the participants can sign-up to become WYA members, learn more about WYA Asia Pacific’s upcoming projects and interact with the four regional interns.

The conference is traditionally endorsed by the Commission on Higher Education, Department of Education, Department of Interior and Local Government, and National Anti-Poverty Commission.
