Youth Forum on Building Success

The Philippine Heritage Council of Manitoba (PHCM), in cooperation with the Manitoba Filipino Business Council (MBFC), Inc., Aksyon ng Ating Kabataan (ANAK), Inc. and the University of Manitoba Filipino Students Group (UMPinoy), is launching the “Youth Forum on Building Success” to be held on March 17, 2016. This is the second year that PHCM is holding this event as part of its year-round activities to promote the Filipino culture and heritage among Manitobans being part of the vibrant and dynamic Canadian multicultural community.

PHCM is a non-profit, cultural group composed of representatives from the numerous organizations within the Philippine community in Winnipeg.

This event aims to inspire the young to become successful in their fields, instill the importance of education and hard work, and promote their active involvement in the Filipino community. A panel of Filipino-Canadian speakers comprising the professional, business and trades sectors will share their real-life experiences, successes and challenges. The panelists will be selected from among prominent Filipino-Canadians in Manitoba who have made a mark in their respective fields and serve as potential role models for the youth. Selection criteria include:

•Professional/business/trades achievements
•Value of contribution to chosen field (profession/business/trades)
•Potential as a role model for youth
•Value of contribution to community
•Ability to communicate and inspire the youth
This event will be done through a panel presentation followed by an interactive question and answer forum and break-out group discussions that will provide more opportunity for the youth, their parents and other participants to exchange ideas and insights with the panelists on overcoming challenges, preparing for post-secondary education, making career choices in the future and getting involved in the community.

Youth Forum – Building Success will be held on Thursday, March 17, 2016 from 6:00PM to 9:00PM, at the Daniel McIntyre Collegiate (DMCI) Multipurpose Hall, 720 Alverstone St., Winnipeg.
