Spirit of volunteerism is not lost - Cajes

Twenty-six young Boholanos are now qualified to be part of the Samahang Kabataan Volunteers Club (SKVC), the extending arm of the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) Bohol Federation.

According to John Torralba, the SK chief of staff, this year, 26 volunteers passed the interview and screening. They are: Mary Grace Ramada, Jerranica Anna Cespon, Rafael Kit Solis, Glaiza Marie Lapez, Mary Jessamyn Arcales, Ian Orillos, Rachel Ann Pilvera, Janice Jandayan, Jonathan Tocmo, Marc Bruce Villarojo, Margelyn Moncano, Mary Joy Peñaranda, Dexter Borbanu, Marie Louise Oppus, Ronald Boniao, Carlo Jay Palma, Neil Bien Golosino, Maria Eulaica Raya, Ellagere Vale Daquio, Angeline Baldapan, Daisy Balangkig, Ma. Melody Nistal, Madelyn Maninantan, Mariam Daisy Rosales, Ma. Ariene Daling and Jaype Piquero.

Most of the volunteers are student and church leaders and community volunteers. They will undergo trainings and seminars to enhance their leadership skills and their hearts.

In this fast-paced world, it’s surprising there’s time for them to attend classes, do homework, take part in extracurricular activities, yet despite busy schedules, many young people are concerned about what’s going on in their neighborhoods and communities, and are looking for ways to get involved.

“I am happy to learn that there are still youth who are giving their best without expecting something in return. The many acts of selflessness here would ensure that the spirit of volunteerism is not lost,” SK national president Jane Censoria Cajes said.

The first batch of SK volunteers who called themselves “Bolahan” were accepted in September 2008.
