Young Mindanao leaders off to Congress

Thirty participants in Cycle 11 of the Congressional Internship Program for Young Mindanao Leaders (CIPYML),  are pictured at  the University of the Philippines-Diliman (above) where they arrived for their orientation and academic training at the UP National College of Public Administration and Governance. The four-month internship program for young people with the potential to become future business and government leaders is sponsored by the Philippines’ House of Representatives and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), and is managed by USAID’s Growth with Equity in Mindanao (GEM) Program. The interns, all of whom are recent graduates of colleges and universities in the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao and other conflict-affected areas of Mindanao, are now working in committees and representatives’ offices in  the House of Representatives in Quezon City, to gain first-hand experience in public policy formulation and legislation.
