NYC calls for more youth orgs to register in YORP

TACLOBAN CITY, Leyte, Jan 24 (PIA) -- The National Youth Commission (NYC) reiterated its call for youth and youth-serving organizations all over the country to register with the Commission’s Youth Organizations Registration Program (YORP).

In a statement sent by the NYC Visayas Area Office, commissioner Erwin Chua Andaya, who heads the YORP informed that the YORP is the agency’s mechanism to establish a youth network in the country. All youth organizations, whether national, community based, school-based, religious, out-of-school youth organizations, young professionals orgs, youth with special needs orgs, among others, may register, Andaya added.

Andaya disclosed that the NYC recently revised the policy on registration to make it easier for youth organizations. To register, the youth organization must have at least 15 members ages 15 to 30. To be submitted are the registration forms, directory of officers and members, and certification or endorsement of school, barangay or church in the area where the organization is operating.

While it is not a requirement to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Andaya still encourages youth organizations to apply for a registration in order to enjoy the privileges and advantages of having a juridical personality.

Through this nationwide registration of youth and youth-serving organizations, the Commission hopes to build linkages with the youth and facilitate a more active participation in its programs.

To know more about the program and the requirements for registration (YORP and SEC) log on to or call the Regional Youth Development Division at 781-2372 and look for Ms. Elsa Ledesma-Magdaleno.

The NYC was created in 1995 pursuant to RA 8044 otherwise known as the “Youth in Nation-Building Act,” as the policy-making, coordinating body of all youth-related institutions, programs, projects, and activities of the government. It is an attached agency of the President of the Philippines. (PIA 8)
