I applied and joined International Youth Council Pilipinas (IYC-PH) last December 2014 after I did a little research. I was amazed, humbled and was motivated as I study the profiles of the people behind the first IYC Chapter in Southeast Asia (http://internationalyouthcouncil.com/group/philippines)
Well, to give you a background: International Youth Council (IYC) is a civil society organization founded at the Youth Assembly at the United Nations in 2007. IYC is a project of the Friendship Ambassadors Foundation (FAF). The mission of the IYC is to provide educational resources, leadership opportunities, and a global network to the next generation of world leaders. The IYC assists young leaders in developing entrepreneurial projects and campaigns to support sustainable development projects on a local, regional, and international level. The IYC also serves as the official network of the Annual Youth Assembly at the United Nations. (Source: http://www.internationalyouthcouncil.com)
Sadly, recently, someone is lambasting two of our leaders dragging the whole organization. I asked if there’s a filed civil case or if there’s any solid evidence backing up the statement, but there is none.
Which led me to think that the claim is so unjust for the organization, members of the current board, directorate, island and regional convenor and batch members. And very unfair to IYC-PH’s Advisory Council (former Health Secretary Esperanza Cabral, multi-awarded journalist & Change.org Philippine Director Inday Espina-Varona, Quezon City Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte, Pasay Youth Development Council Chairman Adrian Martinez, and former Undersecretary & Chairman of the National Youth Commission Leon Flores III) who passionately give their time and effort for the organization’s goals which aims to uplift and empower the youth.
