Youth leader urges youth to make sense of complex living

Mar 24, 2017

BAGUIO CITY – Commissioner Percival Cendaña of the National Youth Commission (NYC) called on the Filipino youth to make sense of their lives despite the complications of modern living.
In the youth development seminar Making Sense of the NYC at the University of Baguio last March 17, 2017, Cendaña said, “We live complicated lives. Imagine, Filipino youths ranging from 15 to 17 years old ay gusto nang makapagpatapos ng kapatid sa pag-aaral, or simply dahil gustong makaahon sa kahirapan.”
He added that it may sound progressive for a developing country to have minors who will to work at a young age, but it reflects how socio-economic facade was poorly addressed and which he said is going in a downward trail.
Cendaña also listed the blowup of teen pregnancy in Cordillera which recently surged up to 80 percent, along with the rise of HIV and STI cases, putting the region at the top among areas of concern in the Southeast Asia and the whole of Asia, respectively.
“All of these occurred because vulnerability exists. Habang bata pa kayo, nandito kami to improve your living by sharpening your decision-making and making your aspirations fully-realized. ‘Yan ang goal ng NYC,” said Cendaña.
The Republic Act 8044 or the Youth in Nation-Building Act mandated NYC to ensure youth development and well-being of young Filipinos by making them “partners” and not mere “benefactors” of the existing agencies, he explained.
“…because you can. I believe that you can make a compelling transformation in a chaotic era that is today, and not just a recipient of free scholarships and such,” ended Cendaña. Wendell Roque, UB Intern
