ARC Young Leaders Camp: inspiring future leaders

“ARC knows that inspiring and harnessing well-deserved young leaders could positively impact their future, and later promote positive change in their community,” Mr. Gerry T. Garcia, ARC Executive Vice President and COO, shared.

Garcia revealed that for this year’s youth camp, the company has endeavored to cover more colleges, even tapping schools outside of Metro Manila like Cavite, Laguna, and Bulacan.

Over 300 student applicants underwent rigorous screening process – from paper screening to panel interview conducted by ARC executives.

“What set these delegates apart from other applicants were their evident leadership qualities and determination to finish school despite the struggles, and eyeing a brighter future while serving the country in their own ways,” Garcia points out.

Among these chosen to participate in this year’s camp and who have shown great leadership potential were Louie Aldrei Alejandrino of the University of Santo Tomas; Ana Mariz Pineda of the University of the Philippines-Los Banos; and Ma. Allison Mikayla Bobier of Miriam College.

Together with 47 other delegates, they will be billeted at the Shercon Resort & Ecology Park inBatangas from February 10 to 12.  They will engage in team discussions, experiential activities, and brainstorming as part of their training.  They will also be given a chance to interact with some of the country’s change makers who could give them first-hand advice on ow to create change and lead in their schools, in their communities, and eventually, in society and the entire nation.

Since inception in 2012, the program has been dynamically evolving even as it continues to plant the seeds of leadership among the Filipino youth.
