The Ninoy and Cory Aquino Leadership Journey
The NCA Leadership Journey, NCAF’s core youth formation 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 which, it is hoped, would ultimately lead to self-transformation and self-commitment for others and country. It is conducted in partnership with the Ninoy and Cory Aquino Center for Leadership (NCACL), an institution established with the help of Drs. Rolando and Rosalinda Hortaleza of Splash Corporation. NCACL seeks to identify, form, nurture and recognize individuals who, through a process of self-transformation, can develop into a community of empowering, world-class leaders.
