Newly-elected SK officials undergo training

THE Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) is conducting a three-day training for the newly-elected Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) officials in Zamboanga City.

DILG City Director Moh. Taha Arakama said the training, which started on Thursday, May 17, until Saturday, May 19, is mandatory under the SK Reform Law.

Arakama said the SK chairpersons and councilors were clustered into three groups to undergo training on the salient features of the SK Reform Law and code of ethics for public officials.

They will be also taught on how to conduct sessions and write resolutions, as well as planning, budgeting, and governance.

Arakama said the training will be conducted by the Ateneo de Zamboanga University in partnership with the DILG, local government and the Liga ng mga Barangay.

The term of the newly-elected Barangay and SK officials officially starts at noontime of June 30, this year. (SunStar Philippines)
