Wednesday, January 9, 2013
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO -- Some 60 youth leaders from Bacolor, Mexico, Sta. Ana, Arayat and this city recently attended the Magsilbi Tamu Youth (MTY) Leadership Training at the Ninoy Aquino Amphitheatre of Heroes Hall here.
The leadership training of the youth leaders from the third district towns, which ran from December 5 to 6, included workshops and seminars in which the MTY Pampanga youth leaders came up with relevant outputs and plans on various issues facing their respective communities.
Among the speakers were youth leaders Eugene Orejas, executive director of a non-government organization (NGO) and a political analyst, who spoke “patronage politics,” while MTY officers Jay-R Hipolito and Kelvin Vistan conducted an orientation and open forum on leadership and good governance.
MTY Pampanga is a cluster of young Kapampangans who work on promoting and strengthening the role of the youth in good governance, particularly in community service, education, environment, health and social services.
The group plans to cascade the MTY training program in different municipalities in the province to heighten awareness and involvement of the youth in nation building.
