NATCCO Online National Youth Congress 2020

2020 seemed to stop for the whole world, even for us, here in the Philippines. Due to the pandemic, social interactions and gatherings has been greatly affected and postponed until further notice. Church services, weddings, birthday parties, and even training and events we're cancelled and discouraged to avoid the spread and limit the risks. For the NATCCO Youth, it meant that we had to shelve our much awaited bi-annual tradition—Youth Congress.

After months of lockdown, we had enough time to research and somehow adjust with new normal which meant digital discussions and webinars. And last July 2-4, 2020, with total number of 97 Youth Leaders from 37 Cooperatives, we have successfully gathered virtually for our first Online NATCCO Youth Congress 2020 via Zoom.

The three-day Congress featured sessions on various topics to help prepare our youth to adapt and become more competent, innovative and productive in the new normal. We invited respected speakers coming from different parts of Asia Pacific who are experts on their field. Thank you for the overwhelming support from our NATCCO CEO Sylvia Paraguya and Aflatoun International CEO Roeland Monasch as they have given their heartfelt greetings to the participants of the Congress. We would also like to thank our guest speakers, Ms. Lavinia Penaverde of Opus Ad Lucem Inc and Mr. Brian Lariche of Make It Right Movement and Aflatoun International for giving their time, effort, and preparation to share their knowledge and expertise on their respective topics on Adaptive Leadership and Program Preparedness in the New Normal.

In this year's Congress, we also braved the social media and had the opportunity to go live via Facebook. We decided to share on Facebook live our first ever online Quiz Bee which was participated by 49 Quizzards from different Cooperatives to engage other Youth leaders and advocates all over the Philippines. The Quiz Bee allowed our partcipants to bond and enjoy each others company virtually. We have awarded three groups as the winners by the end of this unforgettable and engaging activity.

On behalf of the NATCCO Children and Youth Team, we express our sincerest gratitude for the support of all the Cooperatives to involve their youth members to participate in this rare event. The world is indeed changing, these online gathering truly made our longingness to connect with you in the midst of this difficult time feel more worthwhile.

We hope you can join us on our other youth activities, may it be physical or virtual! Stay safe, always, Global Givers!
