NYC urges youth groups to register in YORPCAGAYAN DE ORO, January 19 (PIA) -- The National Youth Commission (NYC) reiterates its call to youth and youth-serving organizations in the country to register with the Commissionís Youth Organizationsí Registration Program (YORP) to establish a youth network in the country.
NYC official Eddie C. Cuaresma of Northern Mindanao said all youth organizations in the country -- including national organization, community-based, school-based, religious, out-of-school youth organization, young professionals organization, or youth with special needs organization -- are eligible to register.
He also said this is the best time to link up with NYC as the YORP Policy on Registration has recently been revised to facilitate easier registration for youth organizations.
Requirements are as follows: at least 15 members; age of members range from 15-30 years old; filled-up registration form; directory of officers and members; and certification or endorsement of school, barangay and church.
NYC also encourages the youth organizations to register at the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to gain the benefits and advantages of having a separate 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.
