The Philippine Army’s 53rd Infantry “Matapat” Battalion (53IB) in partnership with the Local Government Unit (LGU) of Dumingag, Zamboanga del Sur (ZDS) conducted a Training for Trainers on May 1, 2021 at Barangay Dapiwak, Dumingag, ZDS.
Spearheaded by Dumingag Municipal Councilor Jenny Arbitrario and 53IB Bravo Company Commander 1Lt . Kim Garcia, the said training aims to equipp more potential builders for the Youth Leadership Summit (YLS) in the Municipality of Dumingag..
“The YLS training is focused on bringing out more potential youth leaders for a brighter tomorrow in our peaceful communities,” 1Lt. Garcia said.
“We have to be keen in inspiring and molding more potential youth leaders. They will be our future leaders when we are already old and grey. The next generation is a reflection of what kind of role models we are today. We hope that we can encourage more young people to do the same thing,” 53IB Commanding Officer Lt. Col. Jo-ar Herrera said.
