City Social Welfare and Development Office (CSWDO) conducted a Leadership Workshop and Values Orientation to the youth of District I, Tabuk City at M Hotel, Appas. The workshop will run from November 8-11, 2021.

The four-day workshop is attended by Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) and PAGASA Youth Association (PYA) Members, with 5 representatives each barangay.

The first batch of participants was from Barangays Laya East, Laya West, Cabaruan, San Julian, Dilag, and Balong who attended the first two days of the seminar. The second batch will be from Brgys. San Juan, Magsaysay, Appas, Dagupan West, Dagupan Centro, and Casigayan.

According to CSWDO Social Welfare Assistant and facilitator of the event Aida A. Bermillo, these kinds of programs are the instruments of the CLGU itself to reach out to the youth and continue their long years of advocacy even with the pandemic.

The objective of the workshop is to hone the youths of their leadership skills and what leadership really means. Vincent Galura, Statistician I of the CSWDO and one of the speakers, pointed out that to be a leader, one must possess interpersonal and communication skills. He must know how to engage himself with different people with an equal amount of respect. He further said that a leader must be an aware citizen; notices and understands the happenings around him, and be able to find ways to deal with them.
Other speakers present during the event were KSU Campus Administrator Jonathan Belandres, Pftr. Melvin Pepito, Focal Person on Youth Program Leon Dangpason Jr., and POPCOM Personnel Alpha Gabel. They discussed topics which includes Team Cohesion, Developing a Positive Attitude, Unlad Kabataan Program Orientation, and Adolescent Health.

Leadership Programs have been the City’s advocacy long before the pandemic. PYA Assembly and Talent Showcase was an annual event where the youth of the different barangays of Tabuk, showcase their talents and skills through different contested events.

Mayor Darwin C. Estranero, in a message, said he hopes Tabuk City will soon free of the pandemic so the young people in the City can experience youth camps, summits, conferences and other events which the City, thru it’s different departments, has been promoting and supporting.   By Rio Bassong
