Young Leaders Train Together in Batangas

The Rotaract Youth Leadership Awards, a two-day leadership experience for the youth, was held last September 17-18, 2016 at the Shercon Resort, Mataas na Kahoy, Batangas City. This event was organized to ignite the passion of public service within the youth and hone honorable leaders of the future.

Well-known figures from various industries were invited to give a talk and inspire the attendees. Most of the speakers gave their different ideas and opinions on becoming a good leader and a follower. Ms. Pia Arcangel, a reputable newscaster and journalist, was one of the speakers during the first day of the event.

Activities like the Olympic Games were also prepared which served as the team building activity of the attendees. Participants were divided into 4 groups: Green Team, Pink Team, Purple Team, and Orange Team. The leader of the Pink Team had good leadership skills and hard work was also prevalent among the members, giving them the key to win over the rest of the groups.

The event ended with the raffle and awarding of the winners.
