Negros Occidental Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson supports the vision of the National Youth Commission (NYC) for the Filipino youth.

“Let me take this opportunity to declare that Negros Occidental supports the vision of the NYC for the Filipino youth, which is a picture of enabled, involved and patriotic youth who are realizing their aspirations,” Lacson said during the celebration of the International Youth Day Monday.

More than 200 leaders of the Sangguniang Kabataan and other youth organizations attended the event.

“Education has come a long way from being an equalizer to development multiplier. It plays a key role in accelerating progress and there is no denying the fact that the more educated our youth become, the more secure the future will be,” said Lacson.

Education, he added, should be more inclusive and accessible for all young people.
