30 Filipino youth organizations sign up for AIJC’s media and information literacy project

Following the first Media and Information Literacy (MIL) Orientation and Planning Workshop organized by the Asian Institute of Journalism and Communication (AIJC) in September 2020, more Filipino youth organizations have signed up to take part in the MIL in Youth Civic Engagement Project by AIJC with support from UNESCO and in cooperation with the National Youth Commission.

A total of 30 youth organizations have expressed interest in joining the capacity building program under the project, which aims to equip the youth organizations to integrate MIL in their policies, strategies, and activities. They were invited to participate in workshops and coaching sessions, where they were guided in drafting action plans on how to integrate MIL into their work.

Youth organizations with limited internet access were given the option to schedule phone consultations.
