600 Youth Leaders Join First National Youth Leadership Summit – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ndR-4N22Z8g

Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City—Acknowledging the need to unite youth organizations in sustaining the momentum of its peace efforts, the Armed Forces of the Philippines will gather six hundred youth leaders to participate in the first national level Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) that will be held in Davao City from October 28 to October 31.

Anchored with the theme “Networking Youth Leaders for Solidarity,” the activity aims to convene the Youth for Peace members, who are already graduates of regional leadership trainings, to form the National Youth for Peace Movement that will promote a culture of peace, enhance leadership qualities, and strengthen nationalism among the participants.

The AFP is teaming up with partner organizations, including the National Youth Commission (NYC), Department of Education, Department of Interior and Local Government, National Commission on Muslim Filipinos and the Philippine National Police to raise at the national level the regional youth development efforts already being conducted by the Unified Commands of the AFP.

To enhance values orientation, sports skills, and the leadership qualities of the participants, there will be a series of workshops and lectures on use of illegal drugs, values, and human rights among other topics that will support the commitment of the AFP in youth development. The participants will come from the five Unified Area Commands that facilitate youth development programs in their areas.

The Commander of AFP Eastern Mindanao Command LtGen Jorge V Segovia is also expected to attend the opening ceremony on October 27, along with the Guest of Honor and Speaker, Hon Leon Flores III, Chairman of NYC.

Nature Appreciation and Conservation

Prior to the actual summit tomorrow, participants from the Northern Luzon Command and the National Capital Region were given a chance to appreciate nature and know the importance of conserving it. Eighty YLS delegates from NOLCOM and 24 delegates from NCR that arrived in Davao last Friday were introduced to the Island Garden City of Samal.

While there, they visited the Monfort Bat Colony that holds the Guinness World Record for most bats in conservation and were also able to plant mangrove seedlings in the shores of Samal Island.

“As part of the NYLS, we were able to the our part and learn the importance of our roles, as youth and future of our nation, in helping preserve nature and our environment,” YPMN lead convener and university student leader Vince Alvarez said.

First National Level Youth Summit

This is the first time Youth Leaders from different parts of the country will convene to take the YLS into the national level. In the past, the AFP through its field units has been conducting youth leadership summits in their respective areas of responsibilities.

Just last September, the 11th Infantry Battalion of the Philippine Army concluded the first YLS for 117 students in Barangay Trinidad, Guihulngan City. The three-day summit sought to instill the level of awareness on issues that affects the youths in National High School of Hialitan, Trinidad.

“By uniting various youth organizations, we are ensuring the continuity of our programs that contribute to the AFP’s overall mission and harbor support for our government’s national development agenda,” AFP Chief of Staff General Jessie D Dellosa said.

“The eagerness of our youth to participate in positive national conventions such as the Youth Leadership Summit clearly manifests the commitment of our “young movers” to contribute to our country’s enduring efforts for lasting peace and sustainable development,” Gen Dellosa added.

Reflections from the 2nd National Youth Leadership Summitnyls logo2015

‘Authentic peace is achieved when leaders have a sense of integrity, responsibility, and service for others’

Rachelle Miranda

Published 4:57 PM, August 03, 2015

Updated 4:57 PM, August 03, 2015

Each move towards a goal in mind is like a bigger leap in reality. It’s like solving a jigsaw puzzle which requires a lot of perseverance, motivation, and actions. A piece matched to another piece is a new gained strength to find out the bigger picture.

The youth has that particular determination, motivation and necessary actions to build an essential picture of peace amidst diversity.

Coming from the different parts of the Philippines, a group of around 500 young people were gathered to attend the 2nd National Youth Leadership Summit last May 28-31, 2015 at the Tanay Adventure Camp in Tanay, Rizal. With the passion and the heart to become proactive youth leaders and genuine peace advocates, the participants have undergone skills and team development workshops, informative lectures, and values education.

Youth for genuine peace

The 2nd NYLS was developed and organized by the Youth For Peace Advocacy Movement Inc, a coalition of various youth organizations that pursue genuine peace. YPAM has a high regard for young leaders – it believes that young leaders are the key element in creating and maintaining authentic peace. For YPAM, authentic peace is achieved when leaders have a sense of integrity, responsibility, and service for others.

So, what sets the 2nd National Youth Leadership Summit apart from the other youth summits?

In the 2nd NYLS, I was particularly inspired by Lord Pomperada, the Regional Director of World Youth Alliance – Asia Pacific and incoming President of World Youth Alliance, a global coalition of young people who believe in human dignity with a headquarters in New York City.

Through his talk, I learned that being young is not an obstacle in making a contribution to the world. I must aspire to INSPIRE others. I learned that to inspire my fellow Filipino youth, I must uphold LIFE: Leadership with Integrity, respect for Faith, and Excellence.

INSPIRED. The author with one of the speakers during the summit – World Youth Alliance’s Lloyd Pomperada.

What now?

The Youth Leadership Summit or YLS started in 2003 and already has an enormous number of YLS graduates. It is already being conducted in different municipalities, provinces, regions, and even barangays all over the country.

Regardless of the level, its objective of educating and empowering young people to be agents of peace remains the same. YLS partners with different stakeholders such as the Armed Forces of the Philippines, the local government units (LGUs) and civil society such as the YPAM in conducting summits and implementing its plan of actions.

The 2nd National Youth Leadership Summit aims to create synergy between all existing YLS efforts. As NYLS is a convergence of young people’s actions geared towards peace building, the formulation of 2NYLS program of action and peace agenda are among the highlights of the event.

Partnerships and networks had been established to strengthen peace and development efforts for the coordination and mobilization of YLS projects in their respective areas.

Furthermore, every YLS experience is a unique experience, but amongst its uniqueness is that young people converge with the idea of building peace.

The youth are pieces matched together in a puzzle; we all know what the bigger picture is. Now, putting the pieces together to achieve that goal in mind makes a difference. –Rappler.com

How to use the NYLS WordPress Blog

User Roles Check – https://en.support.wordpress.com/user-roles/

User roles determine the access level or permissions of a person authorized (invited by an Administrator) to use a WordPress.com site.

Summary

  • Administrator – nothing is off limits
  • Editor – has access to all posts, pages, comments, categories, tags, and links.
  • Author – can write, upload photos to, edit, and publish their own posts.
  • Contributor – has no publishing or uploading capability, but can write and edit their own posts until they are published
  • Follower (public sites) / Viewer (private sites only) – can read and comment on posts and pages

Each user role is capable of everything that a less powerful role is capable of. (In others words, Editors can do everything Authors can do, Authors can do everything Contributors can do, and so on.)

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Administrator

An Administrator has full power over the site and can do absolutely everything. Administrators can create more Administrators, invite new users,  remove users, and change user roles. They have complete control over posts, pages, uploaded files, comments, settings, themes, imports, other users – the whole shebang.

Nothing is off-limits for Administrators, including deleting the entire site. This is why we recommend having only one administrator per blog.

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Editor

An Editor can create, edit, publish, and delete any post or page (not just their own), as well as moderate comments and manage categories, tags, and links.

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Author

An Author can create, edit, publish, and delete only their own posts, as well as upload files and images. Authors do not have access to create, modify, or delete pages, nor can they modify posts by other users. Authors can edit comments made on their posts.

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Contributor

A Contributor can create and edit only their own posts, but cannot publish them. When one of their posts is ready to be published, or has been revised, the Administrator needs to be notified personally by the Contributor to review it. Furthermore, once a Contributor’s post is approved and published by an Administrator, it can no longer be edited by the Contributor.

Contributors do not have the ability to upload files or images, but they can see your site’s stats.

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Follower

Followers do not have any editing privileges on your site whatsoever; they are simply people who have signed up to receive updates each time you publish a new post. The only thing they can do on your site is leave comments (if you have them enabled), though they do not have to be a Follower to do so.

If your blog is public, anyone can follow it, but you can also send out invitations to specific people you’d like to share your blog with.

If your blog is private, nobody will be able to follow it unless you specifically invite them, at which point they become a Viewer.

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Viewer

Viewers are users who can only view private sites. Like Followers, Viewers do not have any editing privileges. All they can do is simply read the private site they were invited to and leave comments on it (again, only if you’ve enabled them).

Note: If someone is a Follower of your public site, and then you set that site to private, they do not automatically become a Viewer. Viewers must always be specifically invited. Viewers must also sign up to follow a private site if they would like to receive updates each time you publish a new post.

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Adding Users to Your Site

If you’re an Administrator and you’d like to make someone a Contributor, Author, or Editor on your site, please follow the directions on adding users.

Important: Be mindful of the roles that you give users on your blog. For example, if you add a user as an Editor and then they delete all the posts on your blog, they have not “hacked” your site or done anything they were not permitted to do. For this reason, we recommend only adding users whom you trust to your site.

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Adding Viewers to a Private Site

If you want others to be able to view your private blog (and leave comments, if you’ve enabled them) you’ll need to invite them to be a viewer.

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Changing User Roles

As an Administrator of a blog, you can change other users’ roles by following the steps below.

  1. Head to Users → All Users in your dashboard.
  2. Check the box next to user whom you’d like to change the role for.
  3. Using Change role to… dropdown menu, select the new user role you want to assign.
  4. Click the Change button.

Changing User Roles

Note that the blog owner’s role cannot be set to anything other than Administrator. If you want to set the blog owner to another role, you’ll need to transfer ownership of the blog to another user first.

↑ Table of Contents ↑

Removing Users

As an Administrator of a blog, you can remove other users from your site by following these steps:

  1. Head to Users → All Users in your dashboard.
  2. Move your cursor over the username you wish to remove, then click Remove.

National Youth Leadership Summit Philippines

National Youth Leadership Summit Philippines

ypam logo kapayaan final2 inc

The Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) is the primary Peace and Leadership Education program of the National Youth Leadership Summit Event under the Youth for Peace Advocacy Movement Initiative Since 2009

It is already established that the youth is one of the most important segment of our society. They engage in the social transformation of our country and they involve themselves in addressing various issues, such as: student’s right, human rights, graft and corruption, and change of governance among others. They respond to these issues through different ways, ranging from more conservative approaches like changing the system from within through peaceful means, to seeking to overthrow the system by joining the armed struggle. In the middle of the spectrum, there are school-and community-based volunteer youth groups that spend their time, energy and resources engaging in social action.

Based on current assessments, the most vulnerable target for recruitment of the underground movement is the youth sector. Being that it is the government responsibility to guide the youth in order for them to be on the right track, the Youth for Peace in close coordination with its Partner Institutions from the Government and Non – Government units will spearhead a peace and leadership campaign by conducting Youth Leadership Summits in different municipalities across the provinces of the country and form them into member districts.

The Youth Leadership Summit is a Peace Education program initiated by the Youth for Peace in coordination with its partner institutions from the LGU, NGO, DSWD, church groups, PNP and the Philippine Army.

It is a four-day stay-in activity aimed at giving the different sub – sectors of the youth a wider perspective on the current issues hindering peace, progress and development, for a broader acceptance of individual responsibility through a series of lectures and interactive discussion focusing on leadership and the role of the youth in nation building.

Issues concerning environment protection, drug abuse, human rights and spiritual values are also tackled to supplement their knowledge.

Resource persons are invited to present a lecture with ample time for interaction with youth delegates. Leadership workshop exercises, Team Building problem solving activities, Small Group Discussion, Taebo Exercise, Campfire and Disco are also given for the participants to fully achieve a worthwhile experience during their stay.

The Youth for Peace is the Advocacy Movement that coordinates the body of all the sub sectors of the youth. Its mission is to help provide mental and technical support that will develop critical thinking skills and qualified leadership. The youth for peace shall seek and lead the prioritization and direction of all government development programs to the youth to harness their full potentials as leaders of the future. It shall encourage and empower youth to take an active role in resolving community issues and institutional society building.

It shall endeavor to promote physical, spiritual, intellectual and social well being and inculcate in them the desirable values for civic efficiency and productivity and social responsibility to prepare them for their future role. The organization shall accomplish its mission inspired by the idealism dynamism integrity for the excellence of the Youth for Peace under the guidance of the Almighty God
