Future Leaders of the Philippines
June 7-9, 2017 was Region 3 READLANI’s 3rd Annual Teambuilding and Leadership Camp at the International Children’s Care (ICC) Philippines Foundation, Inc. in Floridablanca, Pampanga. This was the first year that the teambuilding event included a leadership training component. The camp theme was: “Ang Kabataan Ang Pagasa ng Bayan” or “Youth Are The Hope For The Future.”
This year, Rehoboth was the agency selected to plan and organize the 3-day, 2-night program. Four Rehoboth Youth Leaders worked with our U.S. Peace Corps Volunteer, Ms. Jacqueline Guan, to design and conceptualize the camp. The camp topics included: Leadership, Self-Awareness, Building Self-Confidence, Conflict Management, the Project Cycle, Goal Setting, Child Protection and Online Safety, and Teamwork and Communication.
Six high school residents from Rehoboth participated. There were over 70 youth in attendance ages 12-18 from 10 different child care institutions from all over Region 3. For many, it was their first time participating in a camp like this and we are proud to have been a part of facilitating their leadership development.
