Ayala Young Leaders Congress unfolds 2007 search

I am an alumnus of this congress (2004), and I believe AYLC is one of the greatest corporate initiatives there is right now in the country courtesy of my favorite Filipino business house, Ayala Group of Companies. AYLC has transformed so many young lives, mine included, and many communities around the country through the works of these alumni who now belong to its network, the Ayala Young Leaders Alliance (AYLA). I am posting this to be of help to the Ayala Foundation and the rest of the Ayala Group in their search for the new batch of promising young people who are already ripe to respond to the call for value-based and dynamic leadership that our country badly needs these days. This is an email from Marie Sol T. Delantar, Youth Leadership Development Manager, Center for Social Development of Ayala Foundation.

Call for Nominations - 10th National Ayala Young Leader

Sorry for cross-posting. .. We need more good leaders for this country.
Having said that, I hope you can do me a little favor and help us
forward this to all young leaders who are just waiting to be
discovered, honed and empowered.

Also, please forward to family and friends in their penultimate year in
college -- who you think might qualify. (Note: His or her school
should be (at least level II) accredited by CHED, FAAP, AACCUP.)

What is AYLC?

The Ayala Young Leaders Congress (AYLC) is an annual

summit that brings together 70 of the most promising student leaders
from colleges and universities from all over the country. The Congress
is part of the Ayala Group's youth leadership development program
called "Shaping Tomorrow's Leaders", which was launched in December of
1998. The Congress, now on its 10th year, is a three and a half-day
event involving workshops, lectures, outdoor activities, plenary
sessions and group discussions designed to hone the students'
leadership skills and potential.

How can I be part of AYLC?

AYLC looks for well-rounded students with
effective leadership, academic excellence and a strong love for their
country and their people. If you are a critical thinker, emotionally
mature and independent, and if you can communicate well and are
recognized as an outstanding student leader in your school or
community, then AYLC is for you.

Only student leaders graduating in school year 2008-2009 may apply for
the congress. This will allow the student leaders selected for the
Congress to return and serve their schools for another year with the
new skills and renewed motivation they received from the congress.
