ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Given the avenues for growth and development could enable the youth to vividly envision and channeltheir passion and energies into becoming effective agents in nation-building. With this in mind, the AN WARAYParty List Organization took the initiative to establish an active partnership with the youth in Eastern Visayas toharness their potential and be of service to the community.Hence, the opportunity to build closer ties with student leaders within the region urged a number ofyoung leaders to spur the creation of the
Student Council Leadership Conference
in the year 2006. Runentirely by the youth, for nearly three years now the conference has firmly established its niche in creating adialogue platform among student council leaders within Eastern Visayas and a forum that provides opportunitiesfor closer and more regular contact among student leaders who will become now and in the future leaders oftheir own generation. Young voices continue to be heard and plan of actions have thus borne fruitful projects.Through a consensual, consultative and principle-oriented process, student leaders are given thechance to discuss key student leadership issues, study the current trends and challenges confronting theirfellow college students, brainstorm possible solutions and responses to such challenges and enhancethemselves with the necessary skills in order to concretize and realize such solutions and responses.The
Student LeadCon process
is composed of three “E” steps:
engage, enhance and empower.
During the conference, student council leaders from colleges and universities withinEastern Visayas are given the opportunity to gather together and form innovative, strong andsustainable networks, linkages and connections among themselves and collaborate in studying,identifying and formulating creative ideas and promising practices in the student development field.
Through talks, roundtable discussions, open forums and breakout sessions, the StudentLeadCon will enable student council leaders to learn from, teach, support and inspire each other inadvancing the in-school youth sector by expanding their leadership knowledge, strengthening theirmanagement skills and building positive connections among in-school youth.
The Student LeadCon also hopes to encourage both student leaders and organizationsto develop a student development plan for their respective campuses that would accentuate howyoung people can be viewed as valued resources and partners in the community. Student leadersare further empowered to fully perform their leadership role by sharing their energy, time, efforts andfocus to the pursuit of the development of the academic community.In fulfillment of its education and youth development agenda, the AN WARAY Party List Organizationhopes that with the diligence and persistence of the Student Council Leadership Conference, more youngdecision-makers will converge and be inspired with the united vision, and more challenging endeavors will beundertaken that will reveal the real value of their involvement and commitment in nation building. With thenumber of participants growing with every year, and with the guidance of mentors and delegates from theprevious LeadCon, the future is bright as they continue working together to realize their dreams of creating abetter future for our country.
