CAMIGUIN, April 18 — In preparation for the conduct of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Mandatory Training, the Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Camiguin Provincial Office conducted an Organizational Meeting for the members of the Provincial Implementation Teams on April 10 at DILG Camiguin Provincial Office.
This is in line with improving the competencies of newly-elected Sangguniang Kabataan Officials in assuming their roles as prime movers in youth development.
The DILG in coordination with National Youth Commission (NYC) Government is set to conduct a nationwide one-day SK Mandatory Training Program for the newly elected SK Officials. The implementation of the training will tap third party service providers or the local resource institutes like state universities and colleges as partners.
For the province of Camiguin, DILG Provincial Director Rhona G. Pedraza-Abadilla spearheaded the meeting which was participated by the Municipal Local Government Operations Officers (MLGOOs) and Local Youth Development Officers (LYDOs) of Catarman, Mahinog, Mambajao and Guinsiliban, and Camiguin Polytechnic State College Representative, Instructor I Victor Niño C. Dapar.
Abadilla discussed the guidelines regarding the implementation of the SK mandatory and continuing training programs to be jointly implemented by the DILG and NYC.
She also emphasized the roles and responsibilities of the Provincial Management Team, training modules, calendar of activities, breakdown of expenses, budgetary requirements, roles and responsibilities of the Provincial Management Team, and training delivery.
Abadilla said that non-attendance to the SK Mandatory Training without any valid reason would be considered as a necessary ground to disqualify SK officials or subject them to disciplinary actions.
“We are hoping that this training will make our youth leaders more equipped with knowledge and skills to fulfil their mandated functions,” she said.
The conduct of the SK mandatory training is in line with the implementation of the SK Reform Act or Republic Act No. 10742. The SK Mandatory Training Program for Camiguin will be conducted on May 23, 2018 (Catarman, Sagay, Guinsiliban) and May 24, 2018 (Mahinog and Mambajao).
Modules on Decentralization and Local Governance, SK History and Salient Features, Conduct of Meetings and Craft Resolutions, Planning and Budgeting, and Code of conduct and Ethical Standards of a Public Official would be taken up in the said activity.(DILG-10/RTP/PIA10)
