21-Day Youth Leadership Training #Philippines

Youth and Student for Peace (YSP) Philippines guided Youth Leadership Training. The training was conveyed through April 16 – May 16, 2019 at the International Peace Leadership College (IPLC) in Tanay, Rizal.

Everyone present received inspiration from the presence of VIP speakers: Mr. Venus Agustin, President of IPLC Campus; Leo Angelo T. Halog, former YLT Director; and Prof. Richell L. Jalipa, YSP Asia Pacific President. Speakers gave various speeches and special lectures to the participants.  A total number of twenty-six participants joined that came from the Philippines, Japan, Fiji and Malaysia.

The course of the workshop included: a series of practical and special lectures, a lecture competition, english classes, The Way of The Unified Martial Arts (TIMD) Training – in which participants were promoted to yellow belts – and Peace Designers’ Training. Participants enthusiastically rendered their service to IPLC through the beautification of the IPLC gate. The youth training would not be complete without the additional challenge. The participants’ determination and physical capacity were tested as they underwent strenuous activities and adventure challenges. A one-day hike at Mt. Daraitan, 2,300ft/739m above sea level, was tasked as their final battle before they graduated the course.
