“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world.
Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”
Margaret Mead

“The Philippine Youth Leadership Program or much known as PYLP is really a life-changing program of the US Department of State. I used to be a normal student, however, joining this prestigious program shaped me into an extraordinary student. I became the one who goes to school and at the same time serves my own community. Turning back the pages from the time I can still remember, it has always been my dream to be an exchange student and I finally fulfilled in 2018. I was very honored to qualify for the program after the arduous selection of 24 outstanding and brilliant youth leaders representing the Philippines in the global arena. I met many diverse people with different nationalities and personalities. I found family and home in PYLP. Thank you very much for letting me experience a once in a lifetime opportunity.”
