Peer Counsellors' Training

Wednesday, July 22, 2015

The youth are the future generations. That's a given fact. How we nurture, protect, care and teach them will be the outcome of their future. With the growing incidence of teenage pregnancies and crimes involving youth, it is important that we make a stand and we fight for their future, a better and brighter tomorrow.

Last July 14 to 16, 2015, the Office of the Municipal Social Welfare and Development held a Peer Counsellors' Training which were facilitated by youth peer counsellors from Sto. Tomas in the persons of Dinny Tumbaga, Rambert Mangay, Ronnie Rinos and Jane Ompoc. This was in partnership with the Municipal Health Office. A total of 21 youth participants were present and they came from different barangays in Malita. Through this, we hope to get partners in our goals to better help the youth. We also hope to replicate this training to other barangays.
