Leading with the Filipino youth of today!

We value working together in piloting programs that shapes the Filipino youth as leaders for a better Philippines.

OUR PROGRAMS

We pilot appropriate, inclusive, and responsive programs for the youth and children, by involving them in the learning and working process for continuous improvement and sustainability.

OUR CORE PROGRAMS

PYDN SK Fellowship Program

Supported by the National Youth Commission (NYC), this is a highly competitive fellowship program for Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) officials with promising and high-impact projects. The pilot run, which started in 2020, is solely focused on health-related projects. However, succeeding runs will cover any of the seven (7) centers of participation, as indicated in the Philippine Youth Development Plan (PYDP).

Adapt and Innovate Leadership Training Course for SK

In collaboration with NYC, Galing Pook Foundation, and United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Philippines, this program empowers SK officials and local government units in creating high-impact programs that focus on the meaningful participation of children and youth.

The Youth for #VaccinesSaveLivesMovement

In partnership with UNICEF -Philippines, this initiative aims to mobilize youth leaders in promoting immunization, through house-to-house profiling and rapid coverage assessment, debunking myths and misconception about vaccination, and re-education of local communities on immunization. 

Outstanding SK Projects Awards

In line with the celebration of the International Youth Day, PYDN showcases the most outstanding youth-led initiatives and innovations by SK councils across the country, committed to build better communities.

Young House Heroes Initiative

Supported by UNICEF Philippines, NYC, and the Council for the Welfare of Children (CWC), this program aims to promote the holistic well-being of children and youth by gathering relevant information, designing appropriate programs, and piloting interventions responsive to their needs in times of crisis.
