At least five schools in Iloilo are partnering with the Department of Interior and Local Government to conduct mandatory training for Sangguniang Kabataan members.

DILG Iloilo Provincial Director Teodora Sumagaysay identified the five partner learning institutions as (

– University of San Agustin

Sumagaysay said UPV will handle the mandatory training for SK officials from the first district of the province, while CPU will handle the second district.

WVSU will handle the third district; ISAT-U the fourth district and USA the fifth district.

The SK Provincial Management Team has representatives from the DILG, learning resource institutions, Provincial Local Youth Development Office, League of Municipalities of the Philippines-Iloilo Chapter and the National Youth Commission.

The mandatory training has three modules:
