The Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation (NCAF) and Ninoy and Cory Aquino Center for Leadership (NCACL) call for applications from CALABARZON (Region IV-A) Youth Leaders to join the 7th batch of the Ninoy and Cory Aquino Leadership Journey on August 10-12, 2012.
NCAF and NCACL are proud to announce the partnership with De La Salle University-Dasmariñas (DLSU-D) in bringing the youth leadership program to Region IV-A.
In the Philippines today, there is an underlying culture of patronage, corruption and deceit. This has resulted in broken institutions, poverty, mistrust of government among citizens, and abuse of the underprivileged. A vacuum of moral leadership in critical areas of national life is impeding the country’s progress.
Using Ninoy and Cory Aquino as role models, the program seeks to reintroduce spirituality as a major foundation for Filipino leadership. Harnessing their innate values systems, the participants take part in a process of self-reflection that will ultimately lead to self-transformation and self-commitment for others and country.
“We are truly excited to be partnering with DLSU-Dasmariñas in this endeavor,” said Rafael C. Lopa, NCAF President and Executive Director. “We hope to start a meaningful partnership and have more batches in CALABARZON in the future.”
Together with program partners, Cebu Pacific Air and White Knight Hotel Intramuros, the program invites the youth leaders to undergo a 3-day transformative experience and be living witnesses of leadership. It is the hope of the Foundation that the young persons will be moved to commit to a life of service and mission through effective and impactful community work. The objectives of the program are:
- To reintroduce models of leadership based from the lives of Ninoy and Cory Aquino
- To realize that spirituality, faith and love are values that anchor one’s life
- To build communal experiences in spirituality with other youth leaders
- To respond to a life of love through the call for action
- To appreciate a life of sacrifice that is deeply rooted in one’s faith
The Ninoy and Cory Aquino Leadership Journey is open to all Filipino citizens residing in Region IV-A: CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon), 18 – 21 yrs. old, and at least a college sophomore (or the equivalent) at the time of the application period.
