Certificate in Youthwork

CYW is the youth program of Lilok that trains the youth to embrace holism to become effective co-journeyer of their fellow youth. Its vision is to see young people as agents of transformation in their respective local communities. Its mission is to empower the youth to become effective facilitator of personal transformation, youth organizing and community development.

Lilok Foundation is a faith based, non-profit and
non-government organization that seeks to serve urban poor leaders, to facilitate their learning, and to empower them toward servant leadership by means of modeling, transformative education and mentoring programs.

Four Areas of Interests :

Values & Personality Enhancer Activities (VPEA)

A. CYW CAMP--A youth camp organized and facilitated by the current participants of CYW. Though originally envisioned as a Peace Camp for promoting conflict resolution among youth involved in gangs, the Lilok staff have opted to encourage the CYW participants to design their own concept from scratch, in order to make their camp more responsive to their personal needs and the needs of their community.

B. YOUTH BIBLE CAMP--Intended for church attending youth to encourage them read and study the bible using creative means. YBC is organized and facilitated by CYW and YBC alumni.

All these activities are venues intended to enhance facilitation, speaking, counseling and organizing skills of current CYWT and YBC alumni, and promote values that embrace human dignity and love of God.
