CALABARZON Youth Leaders to take on the Journey of Ninoy and Cory Aquino in 2012

The Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation (NCAF) and the Ninoy and Cory Aquino Center for Leadership (NCACL), in partnership with De La Salle University-Dasmariñas (DLSU-D), are proud to announce the seventh batch of candidates to its youth leadership program, the Ninoy and Cory Aquino Leadership Journey on August 10-12, 2012.

Drawing insights from the lives of the beloved Aquino couple, 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 which, it is hoped, would ultimately lead to commitment for others and country. The NCA Leadership Journey, touted as one of the more transformative programs available, has already provided a unique and life-changing experience to six (6) batches of student-leaders nationwide.

“We are excited for this upcoming batch as we have partnered with DLSU-D in staging the first CALABARZON program run,” NCAF President and Executive Director Rafael C. Lopa says. “We would like to engage young student leaders and guide them to embrace a life of service and mission rooted in faith and love.”
