Youth Vote Philippines goes to UP Diliman


Yesterday, Youth Vote Philippines gathered various student organizations from UP and around the Philippines for one of many in the series of voters registration and education campaign to involve and engage the youth to act now for our country by taking the first step to go register and make others register as well.

By making the youth aware of the situation, questioning and acting upon it, and sharing it with others, then we can make a STATEMENT and an impact in the development of our country. Atom Araullo and Juana Change's message to the youth.


Launched last September 2008, Youth Vote Philippines is an alliance of various youth and reform-minded organizations for 2010 and beyond — Young Public Servants - INCITEGov (YPS) with Akbayan Youth, Ayala Young Leaders, TAYO, FTV, Reform Coalition, Student Council Alliance of the Philippines, WhyNotForum, Youth Alliance Philippines, and Movement for Good Governance. Their objective is to create online and offline collaboration for voter’s education and increased voter registration.


"Laugh, dance, vote" is one of the messages of Youth Vote Philippines. Jaime Garchitorena, one of the great minds behind this campaign, said that "laughing and dancing are crucial to youth experiences." In the forum he said, “Laugh when you have to laugh, dance when it is time to dance, and come May 2010, vote when you have to vote,” he said.

"He believes this message, which will be promoted through the Internet, on tarpaulins and shirts, would encourage the youth to be more proactive in the May 2010 elections," according to the ABS-CBN online news report.
