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 be?

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.
