The National Youth Commission (NYC) will send at least 20 youth delegates to the forthcoming Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) Young Leaders Training Program on October 11 to 31, 2010 in Nanning, Guangxi, and Beijing, China.
According to Atty. Lesley Jane Cordero, NYC commissioner at-large, the program is a key the All-China Youth Federation launched to enhance friendly relationship between China and ASEAN countries, and to promote the friendship and mutual trust of the young generations.
During the three-week program, participants will learn basic Chinese language; study Chinese history, culture, politics, economy; visit enterprises, governments, schools, communities and rural areas in Guangxi and Beijing to interact with the Chinese youth.
Because of this, the NYC encourages Filipino young leaders to apply at their office and become part of the training program in China.
The Chinese Organizer
will cover the expenses including international flights, as well as tuition, food, accommodation, insurance and cost of organized visits in China.
Participants will however shoulder their own domestic transportation costs and visa fee.
Those eligible to apply are Filipino citizens, 25-40 years old, communicate effectively in English, willing to participate in the discussions and activities, physically fit to travel, and must have a valid passport six months before October 2010. (PNA) /MP
