CMLI 37th SummerCon: Trailblazing a Filipino Identity in the Global Society

Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Children’s Museum and Library, Incorporated is a youth leadership organization that promotes the welfare, development, and empowerment of the Filipino youth through its conventions, competitions, seminars, and tournaments. As it celebrates its 58th year, CMLI aims to help realize the opportunities that the ASEAN integration will bring to the country and the vital role of the country’s youth as it happens. 

With the theme, “CMLI and the Filipino Youth: Trailblazing a Filipino Identity in the Global Society”, the 37th Annual National Summer Conference and Work Camp will be held at NSCC Plaza, Vigan City, Ilocos Sur from April 22, 2014 – April 27, 2014. The convention aims to gather over 200 grade school and high school delegates nationwide (from both public and private schools) to empower them through leadership training, talent development, social awareness, and national friendship. 

The commission discussions, handled by trained youth facilitators from CMLI’s Junior Council-National Executive Board, will be the avenue for the delegates to tackle the convention’s theme in a more interactive manner. Delegates are randomly assigned to commissions to maximize their interaction with their co-delegates from all over the country.
