Sangguniang Kabataan Projects during Pandemic – What is the role of the youth organizations during this pandemic? Are they still relevant? Since we can’t do the previous Sangguniang Kabataan Projects due to the pandemic, we need some alternatives. This blog post will provide suggestions on how to help the youth during this pandemic.
Here are the nine categories of projects according to Philippine Youth Development Plan (PYDP):
- Economic Empowerment
- Social Inclusion and Equity
- Peace Building and Security
- Active Citizenship
