1st Lantawan Youth Assembly held in Isabela City


“It’s time  we  fulfill our  promise to the youth!” Thus, said Basilan Board Member Yusop T. Alano bringing with him

forty-five of Lantawan Municipality’s young leaders for the first-ever Lantawan Youth Assembly (Ist LAYA) held  at the

Querexeta Formation Center in Isabela City, Basilan.

The assembly and seminar-workshop held last January 21-22 was aimed in empowering the youth  and inter-faith understanding under the Bridging Leader’s Program and  Framework of the Asian Institute of Management, where Alano is a member.

At least 24 out of 25 Lantawan barangay Sangguniang Kabataan Chairmen and their representatives attended the said event. They were joined by the Presidents of the Student Governments of Lantawan’s three National High Schools, namely: Concepcion, Tairan and Atong-Atong, and youth leaders from the church-based organizations and Muslim youth groups throughout the municipality.

The 2-day seminar workshop was handled by top trainers from among the most respected institutions in the region Dr. Socorro Rebecca B. Felonia and  Dr. Marcelina Carpizo of the  Western Mindanao State University’s  College of Public Administration who expounded on Leadership Concepts, Capital, Lifeline and Bridging Leader’s Framework respectively.

Ms. Miriam L. Suacito, Executive Director of the Nagdilaab Foundation, Inc. on the other hand, facilitated the program Planning Seminar with the aim harmonizing the strategies to be employed by the

assembly over the next year.

Mr. Pablan N. Alih, MLGOO of  DILG Lantawan conducted a refresher course on LGU operations and protocols, followed by a rather animated open forum to voice out problems and issues they have with LGUs, specially in the youth sector. A series of Team Building exercises were likewise conducted for them by Jamju  A. Rivera, PCCI Regional Governor for Western Mindanao and ARMM and Project Manager of the 1st LAYA.

The youth leaders, representing all the youth-oriented institutions in Lantawan, were formally organized and inducted. A core group of nine (9) Leaders was similarly formed, with Carlito Layos Jr. of Brgy. Matarling, selected to be the group’s  Chairman and Lantawan SK Federation President Jemer Ansaruddin of Brgy. Lower Banas as Vice Chairman. The others member of  the core group included Nadswa Hamja (Bulan-Bulan), Secretary; Hader Tameeng (Atong-Atong), Asst. Secretary; Deborah Kate Ramirez (Tairan), Treasurer; Jayson Alviar (CNHS SSG), PIO; Jarma Sajiron (Pniongan), Auditor; Nasser Joe (ANNKPK-OSY) & Sophia Edris (Calayan), Project Managers.

The Lantawan Youth Assembly will continue to operate under the guidance and support  of Office  of the Provincial Board Member Yusop T. Alano, Provincial Jovernor Jum J. Akbar, the Lantawan LGU, DILG-Lantawan, Nagdilaab Foundation, Inc., and the SK Municipal Federation of Lantawan. (Richard G. Falcatan)
