Filipino youth: do they care?
In the past, it was often said that the youth is the hope of the motherland.
Today, are they still the hope and selfless heroes they were perceived to
Intersect, the quarterly magazine of the John J. Carroll Institute on Church
and Social Issues (JJCICSI) in its latest issue titled, Regenerating
Culture, presents a different look at todays Filipino youth. The article
titled Heroic Youth, features the stories of young people who became
volunteers for different organizations such as the Jesuit Volunteers
Philippines, Inc. and the Gawad Kalinga. These volunteers became committed to
help the country in their own small waywhether by teaching indigenous peoples
in different parts of the Philippines or building houses for less fortunate
Filipinos. Also featured in the issue are articles on the regeneration of
Filipino culture, human rights, Philippine environment, responsible
parenthood, diaspora philantrophy and microfinance.
