Ayala Foundation Nurtures Future Leaders
Close to a hundred students from various colleges and universities in Davao city will be participating in a three-day leadership camp beginning today until June 29th.
Initiated by the Ayala Foundation, Inc. (AFI) in partnership with Globe Telecom, the Leadership Communities (LeadCom) Program aims to hone and empower students into becoming future leaders through skills and competencies training.
“We see a growing need for servant-leaders and the best place to plant the seed is in schools where we can be instrumental in developing this fundamental orientation among the youth. We expect that through LeadCom, more and more students would be encouraged and equipped to become servant leaders who are actively engaged and committed to bringing about change in their respective communities,” said Mario Deriquito, AFI Senior Director.
To further inspire the participants into becoming leaders and change agents in their respective schools and communities, the students will be asked to formulate project proposals at the conclusion of the leadership training. Ayala Foundation, Inc. will then provide initial funding to help them plan, mobilize, and implement their project proposals.
Globe Telecom, via its corporate social responsibility arm — BridgeCom, will also select two groups that will be given separate grants.
Likewise, participants will be provided with free Globe BridgeCom SIM cards so they can get in touch with other BridgeCom youth leaders.
“Globe is committed to helping transform the youth into future leaders through ICT. We know the importance of communications, both mobile and internet, in making the youth connected, informed, and empowered. AFI, on the other hand, is also dedicated to developing young leaders. Thus, LeadCom has become an important platform where we and AFI can collaborate on this common goal,” shared Rob Nazal, Globe Corporate Social Reponsibility Head.
Schools participating in the leadership camp are Ateneo de Davao University, Brokenshire College, Davao Doctors College, Holy Cross of Davao College, Philippine Women’s College of Davao, San Pedro College, University of the Immaculate Conception, University of Mindanao, and the University of the Philippines – Mindanao.
Similar leadership camps are also slated in Bukidnon, Camiguin, Cagayan de Oro, and Albay.
