LEGAZPI CITY, Aug. 12 (PIA) – Pilipinas Natin, a volunteer movement that helps harness the Filipino’s potential for greatness, invites community youth leaders and facilitators, information officers and advocacy workers in the 2015 Volunteerism Summit set on Aug. 19-21, this year at the Tagaytay  International Convention Center in Tagaytay City.

Invictus Buenaventura, event secretariat, said the 2015 Volunteerism Summit intends to gather school and community-based youth leaders and facilitators, among other social mobilizers to delve on best working practices in engaging the youth through social communications in various forms.

Pilipinas Natin, which operates under the Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCCO), fullfils its mandate by connecting government with the people- by forming a volunteerism movement that create an enabling environment for people to care, share and support one another in order to build healthy, humane and nurturing communities that embodies our aspiration for an empowered nation.

The 2015 Volunteerism Summit will provide a venue among partcipants to learn effective social communication tools and practices that they can later apply in organizing advocacy campaigns and mobilizing volunteers in their respective schools and communities.

“We hope we can inspire them with our successful community development initiatives and nation building advocacies through the presentations and testimonials from our resource persons comprised of youth leaders, government offiials, motivational speakers, celebrities and media practitioners, among others,” Buenaventura said.

The summit will evolve on the theme “ Information that Inspires Youth Involvement”.

Buenaventura furthered that overtime, the youth will be able to develop a community of young servant leaders and facilitators committed to practice inner leadership and servanhood in their respective schools and communities.

The new school year 2015-2016, according to him, will be a defining year for the Filipino youth to learn from the current challenges of the country and the broadening influence of social media.

“We need to empower our youth leaders and facilitators to become influential communicators that inspire action for common good,” he said.

Registration for the 2015 Volunteerism Summit costs P4,500 that include hotel accommodation, food and program materials for the 3 days-2 nights event.  (MAL-PIA5/Albay)
