*NYC OPENS 45th SSEAYP APPLICATIONS*

The National Youth Commission announces the opening of applications to the
45th Ship for Southeast Asian and Japanese Youth Program (SSEAYP).

Now on its 45th year, the SSEAYP is an annual cultural exchange program
among the youth in the ASEAN and Japan that seeks to promote goodwill,
friendship, and mutual understanding.

The SSEAYP started in 1974 by virtue of a Memorandum of Agreement between
Japan and the first five ASEAN Member States (Indonesia, Malaysia,
Philippines, Singapore and Thailand). Over the years, as Brunei Darussalam,
Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar and Vietnam were accepted as members of the
ASEAN, the participants now represent the ten (10) ASEAN Member States and
Japan.

Each country selects 28 participating youth (18-30 years of age) and one
national leader (35-55 years of age) who converge in Japan for the initial
activities and then board a Japanese luxury liner, MS Nippon Maru to embark
on a 52-day goodwill cruise to the appointed ASEAN countries for port of
call activities.

In the Philippines, the NYC, in cooperation with other partner agencies
select the youth participants representing the 17 regions and the national
leader. It is also the NYC that leads the implementation of the Philippine
Country Program in cooperation with other government and non-government
entities including the alumni through the SSEAYP International Philippines.

Interested applicants may send their completely filled out application
forms and other requirements to sseayp at nyc.gov.ph not later than 5:00 p.m.,
Friday, March 30, 2018.
