Strengthening the power of the youth
Through different campaigns and activities, we aim to strengthen our capabilities and build a youth movement that’s sharp (mas masigasig), solid (mas matibay), and broad (mas malawak).
We create avenues for holistic, relevant, and transformational education. We want to engage young Filipinos to help bring about their innate capacities for socio-political involvement.
We provide a platform for discussions, mutual guidance, and support. We want to enable safe spaces for individuals to explore and grow their innate potential to participate in nation building.
We seek to build a network of advocates for human rights, freedom and democracy to cultivate and strengthen a collective youth movement.

Reinventing the youth movement
In these times when human rights are violated and freedoms are suppressed, we need to reimagine how to step up, speak out, and act. By practicing these values, we move closer towards the society we want to live in.
We stand with young Filipinos from different sectors in the country. True justice only happens when all of us enjoy our rights.
It’s not enough to be aware. We also need to actively participate in shaping our society.
We may not share the same experiences, opinions, ideas and the like. But we all share one thing — our humanity.
We are different, and that’s a good thing. Our different perspectives and ideas are all valuable in the movement for genuine positive change.
