Pangasinan 4th District Representative Christopher De Venecia on May 14 called on youth leaders to do more than organizing sports leagues.
The Pangasinan politiko made the statement after voting during the barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) elections.
De Venecia said the SK has “a lot of potential.”
“SK is for youth empowerment, so I urged them to create and implement programs using their funds for youth empowerment initiatives,” he said.
De Venecia said the SK can implement other projects such as computer education and proper social media use.
“They should teach their constituents to do business, so they would have additional income,” he added.
