  • Organisation

    The College Editors Guild of the Philippines is a regional formation of the oldest, broadest, and only-existing alliance of student publications in the Asia-Pacific region. However, in the region the chapter is still under the process of development and better organisational operation.

    Its membership is open to all student publications. It has over 750 student publications as members from more than 500 schools in 70 (out of 81) provinces and cities nationwide. It is a patriotic and democratic organisation as it ardently struggles against foreign domination and control in the economy, politics, culture and all spheres of national life. It is democratic as it upholds and defends the interest and welfare of the Filipino youth and people. This commitment has kept the CEGP as the oldest-existing and the widest youth organisation.

    CEGP is the centre for the advancement of campus press freedom. It is steadfast in protecting and defending the right of every student to seek, receive and impart information through any medium without any interference.

    Cordilleran Youth Center Inc is a non-profit, non-stock, non-government organisation that is committed to help arouse, organise and mobilise the youth and students in advancing the interests and welfare of the indigenous peoples of the Cordillera. CYC provides services to various indigenous and non-indigenous youth and students’ organisations. It also coordinates various activities spearheaded by CYC partner organisations.

    Their programmes are the following:

    • Education, training, animation and tutorial
    • Organising and networking
    • Campaigns and advocacy
    • Culture, heritage and development
    • Socio-economic and disaster risk reduction and management

    • Project

      Timek ti Umili (Voice of the People) is an 18-month project aimed to empower the vulnerable sector of indigenous youth in the Cordillera region. It focuses on the youth, dubbed as the “nation’s hope” as potential prime movers. However, the inaccessibility of education in the region is a hurdle to this potential among indigenous youth. It is only through the youth’s empowerment in alternative venues, which this project aims to provide, that this untapped potential can be fully realised.

      Tangible results are wider public support, enforcement of local policies and laws, immediate response from the government. and enabling the people to mobilise themselves for more active political participation. These are achieved through: a.) capacity-building, b.) organisational strengthening and formation, c.) research and publication, e.) advocacy and campaigns, e.) linking and networking.

      All these are actualised through sets of trainings for both community-based and school-based journalists (and citizen journalists-to-be) to equip them with relevant discussions on indigenous peoples’ rights and harness their skills in research, reporting and journalism. These are translated to their actual practice of citizen journalism both in social media publishing and in the production of the organisational newsletter and the research paper, “On the situation and challenges of the Cordillera Youth”.

      Moreover, this can never be truly effective if no mechanisms for sustainability is programmed. Thus, as one of the thrust of this empowerment programme, Timek ti Umili aims to broaden the membership and strengthen the CEGP-Cordillera, in order to successfully facilitate, monitor and sustain the initiatives of the project. While empowering individuals can bring about change, the test of sustainability can be best overcome by collectively empowering the sector through organisations.
