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 today’s 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 way—whether 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.
