Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro - - News Plus -

THE city’s Lo­cal School Board (LSB), Ayala Foun­da­tion, Inc. and Balay Min­danao Foun­da­tion, Inc. will con­tinue to col­lab­o­rate for the im­ple­men­ta­tion of the Lead­er­ship Com­mu­ni­ties Pro­gram in Ca­gayan de Oro.

The City Coun­cil dur­ing its reg­u­lar ses­sion Mon­day presided over by Vice Mayor Raineir Joaquin V. Uy en­acted an or­di­nance au­tho­riz­ing Mayor Os­car Moreno to sign the Mem­o­ran­dum of Agree­ment (MOA) for the pur­pose.

In his let­ter to the leg­isla­tive body, Mayor Moreno said the project aims to em­power the youth by en­gag­ing and de­vel­op­ing their lead­er­ship po­ten­tial to for­mu­late so­lu­tions and in­no­va­tive ap­proaches to com­mu­nity is­sues and prob­lems.

He said the lo­cal fund­ing re­quire­ment shall be taken solely from the Spe­cial Ed­u­ca­tion Fund (SEF).

The Power learned that Ayala Foun­da­tion has de­vel­oped the Lead­er­ship Com­mu­ni­ties Project, which is com­posed of mod­ules on com­mu­nity scan­ning, project ideation, project re­fine­ment work­shop and lead­er­ship train­ing mod­ules based on Ayala groups’ na­tional flag­ship pro­gram for the youth- the Ayala Young Lead­ers Congress (AYLC).

Mean­while, the BMFI, as a non-gov­ern­ment or­ga­ni­za­tion, has been im­ple­ment­ing barangay gov­er­nance strength­en­ing and com­mu­nity-based youth pro­gram and has in­di­cated its will­ing­ness to be­come the lo­cal or­ga­ni­za­tion part­ner to sup­port the project in the city.

Un­der the MOA, the Lo­cal School Board shall help se­lect barangays and youth or­ga­ni­za­tions that will par­tic­i­pate in the ma­jor work­shops of the pro­gram; sup­port youth groups in the im­ple­men­ta­tion of their projects through var­i­ous de­part­ments of the LGU, and pro­vide a coun­ter­part fund for the project.

For its part, the BMFI shall as­sist in ca­pac­ity-build­ing ac­tiv­i­ties, ap­point a co­or­di­na­tor and co­or­di­nate for all ac­tiv­i­ties re­lated to the project with part­ner barangays, among oth­ers.

The leg­is­la­tion was re­viewed and fa­vor­ably en­dorsed by the com­mit­tees on ed­u­ca­tion and on laws and rules chaired by Coun­cilors Suzette Mag­ta­jasDaba and Ian Mark Na­caya, re­spec­tively.
