Teaching & Touching Lives (Plan A)


(A transformative program conducted by Bayanihan Folks Arts Foundation in collaboration with the AMBASSADOR ALFONSO T. YUCHENGCO FOUNDATION)

This program aims to create and develop a critical mass from the youth community that will have a sense of pride in their Filipino heritage, in themselves and their capabilities to become bright and future leaders in their own communities.

The Program plan: 

  1. Select a pilot site.

  2. Gather at least 50 participants drawn from a selected group of students from public schools.

  3. Bayanihan directors, musicians, dancers, alumni volunteers, will be tapped as resource persons.

  4. Half day sessions, once or twice a month will be undertaken. Ex. On Saturdays – 1:00 – 4:00pm (could change depending on schedule).

  5. A pilot site coordinator will be assigned by the local leader to efficiently run the program on site. LGUs will work closely with community leaders and NGOs.

  6. A culminating activity will be scheduled at the end of the 1 year program, supported by the multi sectoral allies.

  7. Every year a public school will be assigned by the LGU to adopt the program. 8. Bayanihan’s role will be on a consultative basis with periodic visits to the site.

The plan includes mobilizing student volunteers who are willing to be trained and who in turn will assist in training the children. Working closely with local government units, community leaders and NGOs, the program hopes to foster the spirit of community service, respect for hard work, discipline and the essence of "Bayanihan" which is helping each other to achieve a common goal….

Training period is three months, with a culminating activity after the training period.
