NYC urges youth to make their voices heard through the 9th Parliament of Youth Leaders

BUTUAN CITY, Jan. 25 (PIA) -- “We need your voice! Join us usher in change," said National Youth Commission (NYC) Commissioner Gio Tingson Thursday, marking the opening of the applications to the 9th Parliament of Youth Leaders.

With the theme “Revolutionizing Youth Development,” the parliament aims to formulate policy recommendations to address youth issues in the country. These recommendations are then lobbied to government leaders to be considered as proposed bills and administrative policies. It is important to note that during the event, participants also get to share ideas and gain valuable insights and networks to aid them in their youth development efforts.

Tingson, who heads this year’s National Youth Parliament (NYP) National Organizing Committee, said that this gathering is the perfect platform for all Filipino youth to get proactive.

“Ito na ang pagkakataon n’yo na makibahagi sa isa sa pinaka-importanteng proyektong pangkabataan ng pamahalaan kung saan ang boses natin ay maririnig sa paggawa ng mga policy recommendations para maging batas o polisiya. Ang Kabataang Filipino mula sa lahat ng rehiyon at sektor ay inaanyayahan ng NYC na sumali at makilahok (If you want change in the government – in our society – this is a great place to start. The Filipino youths of different religions and sector are enjoined to participate)," he said.

The Commission is also revamping the conduct of the parliament, making it more inclusive and youth-friendly. “We’ll do away with cosmetics like formal clothing and focus on the substance. You can show up in your jeans and rock star shirt, as long as active participation and involvement is there,” said Tingson.

Started in 1996, the NYP is slated to be held on the 1st week of May 2012. An estimate of two hundred (200) youth leaders representing different sectors and regions are expected to participate in this event.

Download the application forms at the NYC website (www.nyc.gov.ph) or get it from your nearest NYC area office. Following are the qualifications of NYP 9 applicants:

● Residing at the place of representation for at least six (6) months at the time of submission;

● Must be a member of an organization;
