NYC opens application for 12th National Youth Parliament
This is a press release from the National Youth Commission.
We want you to be the voice and advocates for the Philippine Youth Development Plan 2017-2022.
The National Youth Commission (NYC) opens the application for the 12th National Youth Parliament (NYP). As mandated by Republic Act 8044, the NYP is a biennial congress of youth leaders representing a cross section of the Filipino youth population and is convened by the NYC.
This year, the 12th NYP will be held in Davao City on October 21-25, 2018 and will be attended by more than 300 youth and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) leaders representing the different regions of the country. The 3-day convention will provide the selected participants with skills on parliamentary procedures, advocacy and policy paper making, resource mobilization to the young parliamentarians, and capacity building for effective advocacy and lobbying. One important component of the 12th NYP is the recognition of outstanding youth parliamentarians who are able to draft innovative policies in advocating youth development.
If you are between 15 and 30 years old, a youth leader, and you are up to the challenge of the NYP12, you may submit duly accomplished application forms starting June 13, 2018 by online submission or by courier service.
Deadline for submission of NYP12 application is on July 27, 2018 at 5 pm.
