Tarlac City Mayor Angeles welcomes ‘youth city officials’
Mayor Cristy Angeles welcomed on Monday the city’s ‘youth officials’ as the city government partners with the Rotary Club of Central Tarlac for the holding of the ‘New Generations Week 2018.’
“The City Government of Tarlac warmly welcomes our youth city officials, heady by Youth City Mayor John Vincent Grey and Vice Mayor Kenneth Alexis Paras,” Angeles said on her Facebook account.
The Tarlac City Information Office said the New Generations Week 2018 is a program that provides young Tarlaqueno leaders a glimpse of public administration, particularly local governance and policy development.
The chosen youth city officials from different public and private high schools are allowed to participate in the daily activities of elected city officials for a week.
This week’s activities include community immersion and the practice of parliamentary procedures.
Aside from the youth city mayor and vice mayor, 12 youth city councilors were also chosen, as well as an SP secretary.
“I personally believe in leading by example. If we want to have these kinds of leaders, we should start training them the proper way while they are young,” Angeles said in her speech at the program launch.
“And we can do this by serving as good role models,” she added.
On her Facebook post, Angeles commended the Rotary Club of Central Tarlac for spearheading the program which, according to her, “serves as a training ground for our youth leaders to become committed public servants in the future.”
“The youth of today are the future leaders of our country,” Angeles said.
