DELEGATES are in for one hot summer, as they explore hot issues and discuss hot topics during the 9th Parliament of Youth Leaders (NYP 9), which will be held in Naga City in Camarines Sur.
“Bicolandia will be the venue of plenty of hot discussions on youth issues. Hindi lang summer destination at adventure tourism venue ang Naga, CamSur — ito ay isang youth-friendly locality,” states commissioner Gio Tingson, National Organizing Committee chair for NYP9.
While the rest of the country braves the summer heat, around 200 youth leaders face a different kind of heat as they express their opinions and support their views on policy proposals that could become government programs or policies responding to the various issues encountered by the Filipino youth.
The application form may be downloaded at the NYC website (www.nyc.gov.ph). Following are the qualifications of NYP 9 applicants:
* Filipino citizen, aged 15-30 years old as of February 29, 2012
* Residing at the place of representation for at least six (6) months at the time of submission
* Must be a member of an organization
* Of good moral character
* Can contribute to the objectives of NYP 9.
Deadline of application is February 29, 2012.
