NYC CALLS ON MORE YOUTH ORGS TO REGISTER IN YORP; REMINDS ORGANIZATIONS TO ALSO REGISTER WITH SEC

The National Youth Commission invites youth and youth-serving organizations all over the Philippines to register with the Commission’s Youth Organizations’ Registration Program. The YORP is the agency’s mechanism to establish a youth network in the country. “Lahat ng youth organizations sa buong bansa ay pwedeng magpa-register. Whether kayo ay national org, community-based, school-based, religious, out-of-school youth org, young professionals org, or youth with special needs org, lahat po ay pwedeng sumali,” says Commissioner Erwin Chua Andaya, who heads the YORP Program.

 

Commissioner Andaya says this is also the best time to link up with NYC as the YORP Policy on Registration has recently been revised to facilitate easier registration for youth organizations. “Konti na lang ang requirements para makapag-register sa YORP. Importante diyan, dapat kayo ay may at least 15 members na may edad 15-30 years old. Kailangan nyo lang i-submit sa amin ay registration form, directory of officers and members, and certification or endorsement ng school, baranggay, or simbahan,” says Commissioner Andaya.

 

While it is not a requirement to register with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), Commissioner Andaya still encourages youth organizations to apply for a registration, “Importante din ang SEC Registration to gain the benefits and advantages of having a separate juridical personality,” Commissioner Andaya adds.

 

Through this nationwide registration of youth and youth-serving organizations, the Commission hopes to build linkages with the youth and facilitate a more active participation in its programs. “Kung registered kayo with NYC, mas madali kayong matutulungan ng agency sa trainings or workshops na kailangan ng inyong org para lumago at mas makatulong pa sa inyong community,” adds Commissioner Andaya.

The NYC was created in 1995 pursuant to RA 8044 otherwise known as the “Youth in Nation-Building Act”, as the policy-making, coordinating body of all youth-related institutions, programs, projects, and activities of the government. It is an attached agency of the President of the Philippines.
