The ONE YOUNG MINDANAO, an advocacy-driven organization on youth leadership and empowerment, is built on the fundamental idea that we have to prepare and engage the youth of Mindanao to be able to create genuine progress and this begins by promoting powerful leadership paradigms.
Our objective in OYM is to develop a community of Mindanao youth champions particularly among young leaders, students and out of school youth (OSYs). To date, we have already reached more that 20,000 students across the different parts of Mindanao with our empowerment caravan and have also succeeded in creating civil society partnerships, regularly conducted community driven initiatives and facilitated scholarship opportunities for OSYs.
This year, we embark on another milestone as we organize the 1st One Young Mindanao Leadership Summit this October 10-12 at the South Cotabato Gymnasium, City of Koronadal, South Cotabato.
There are four major activities in the summit: First is the Walk for Education – a symbolic unity walk in the streets of Koronadal to promote greater consciousness on the importance of education. Second is the Leadership Session – a 1-day plenary event which will feature motivational speakers to talk about fundamental leadership concepts to inspire the participants to master their leadership potentials. Third is the OYM Facilitators Training, a 2-day workshop which will seek to train potential facilitators of modules which is delivered in our empowerment caravan and other events. Finally, we will have the OYM Leadership Expedition which will expose the participants to cultural T’boli communities for community engagement.
The participants will be paying a registration fee of P350 for the Leadership Session(Day 1) / P2500 (live-out) for participants attending the OYM Facilitators Training /P3000 for participants attending the OYM Leadership Expedition. Attached is thesummit primer for more details. Do not miss this chance to be part of our growingadvocacy network. Be part of the 1st OYM Leadership Summit!
