One of the commitments I made during the campaign was to give a platform for the youth to be involved in governance and for government to give them recognition and support.
Since then we have been able to form our municipal-wide Liloan Youth Organization (LYO) composed of six sub-sectors in all 14 barangays: In School Youth, Out of School Youth, Community Based Youth, Working Youth, Religious Youth and Youth with Special Needs.
Our Youth Organization has also been awarded the no. 1 youth organization in the Province of Cebu under the Sukod Program of the Cebu Provincial Government.
On May 22, we are holding the first ever LILOAN YOUTH FESTIVAL providing a venue for the youth to avail of government services and to showcase their talents.
The officers of our LYO and its sub-sectors visited my office today and I couldn't have been more impressed or prouder of these promising young leaders.
And we had a little fun at the end, too. ?
Oh, to be young again!???
