Mayor Pamintuan hails formation of youth development council in Angeles City
Angeles City Mayor Edgardo Pamintuan has lauded the creation of the city’s Local Youth Development Council (LYDC), which will help in the planning and execution of projects and programs for the youths.
“I feel ecstatic about the future programs and activities of our youth leaders. Clearly, this is a manifestation that they are taking their first steps as we enjoin their participation in doing public service and government work towards a sustainable and inclusive local governance,” said Pamintuan.
The LYDC will be chaired by SK Federation President Arnoah Prince Mandani and will be assisted by Vice Chairman Renzo Carlo Santiago, SK Federation Vice President.
Sectoral representatives were also elected.
Section 23 of Republic Act 10742 or the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Reform Act of 2015 provides that the LYDC shall “ensure wide and multi-sectoral youth participation in local governance, there shall be in every province, city and municipality”.
The LYDC shall assist the planning and execution of projects and programs of the SK, and the Pederasyons in all levels.
RA 10742 further states that the LYDC shall be composed of representatives of youth and youth-serving organizations in the provincial, city, and municipal level.
