The SUGPAT Adolescent Development and Participation Program (SUGPAT-ADAP) is the flagship program of Ateneo de Zamboanga University's Center for Culture and the Arts fully supported by UNICEF Philippines which provides opportunities for out-of-school youth and at-risk adolescents in Zamboanga City, Philippines through social innovation and creative peace-building strategies.

SUGPAT co-organizes Galing Pook Governance Fair 2018

YOUTH IN INNOVATIVE GOVERNANCE

The entire AdZU-SUGPAT team flew to Manila last October 10 and 11 to help co-organize the Galing Pook Governance Fair 2018 with the theme “#BagoTayo: Youth in Innovative Governance” at the Novotel Araneta Center, Quezon City.

This year's theme, Youth in Innovative Governance, is using #BagoTayo as its battlecry. Guided by the collective goal of inspiring the newly elected Sangguniang Kabataan officials to practice innovative good governance, organizers prepared activities and sessions highlighting best practices around the country. 

“It has always been SUGPAT’s thrust to empower the youth both in terms of innovation and local governance so this opportunity with Galing Pook is the ideal platform to expand our mission not only in Zamboanga City and Western Mindanao but to the national landscape as well,” SUGPAT Program Director Kiko Miranda said.  READ MORE>>>

PARTICIPANTS IN BACK-TO-BACK CREATIVE ARTS WORKSHOP

Joshua Labra was only 16 years old when he quit school to give way for his four other younger siblings’ opportunity to an education. 

Living off only with the meager income from his mother who worked part-time as a laundry woman and his father who worked as a jeepney driver, Joshua knew, being the eldest, that there was only so much to go around. 

But being out of school did not become a hindrance to Joshua’s constant pursuit of learning and desire to become a productive member of his community.  READ MORE>>>
