April 11, 2008, at 1:00 to 5:00p.m. was the date and time to remember. 74 participants from the youth sector (particularly from Tau Gamma Phi), Brgy. Councilors, SK and leaders from different Homeowners' Association in Brgy. Molino IV came to listen and learn from this half day youth seminar on Drug Prevention and Pure Love Lectures at the Clubhouse of Citihomes Subdivision, Molino IV, Bacoor, Cavite, with the overall theme, "Institutionalizing the Culture of Heart on Leadership towards Unity, Peace and Solidarity."
This youth seminar was initiated due to the concern of the President of Citihomes Homeowners Association, Inc. (CHAI), Mr. Rogelio Agawin, for the youth particularly of this subdivision. He has lots of plans for the betterment of this place and his hope is leaning more on the youth. However, just like in any other places, common problems such as drugs, alcohol, immoralities, etc are existing in this place. This was then an opportunity for us to present our alternative approach of informing and educating not only the youth but as well as the Brgy. officials and leaders of some organizations in our Barangay, of such important issues based on our guiding Principles.
In his acceptance of our proposal, he suggested us to bring this peace project to the Barangay Molino IV, particularly to the attention of Councilor Jeffrey P. Campana, the youngest Councilor of this Brgy. and thus responsible for their youth programs and activities. Driven by the same mission to build a better society and bright future for our youth, the three of us came together to discuss our hopes and ideals as we wish to help and give our moral support especially to the needy ones like some of the youth, if not all, who are in danger of being overcome by the danger of drugs, alcohol and immoralities causing so much disruption in our peaceful loving society. Together with the support of some of the key persons in our province, barangay and peace movement, this youth seminar materialized and ended up successfully.
