After several virtual activities with the YIN - Youth Inclusion Network, D.M Consunji Inc. opened its doors to hold the first face-to-face interaction and company visit with the youths from Life Project 4 Youth - LP4Y last Tuesday, May 24, 2022.
With Fifteen (15) youths from LP4Y Taguig and Payatas Center, the ultimate goal of the Company Visit was to support young adults through professional exposure by helping them develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in the field of work and to introduce them to a real corporate setting.
As a YIN member, DMCI "recognize that the action toward Youth Inclusion remains to be an urgent need. We acknowledge that the Youth are our future, and we need to unite to give them access to a better future. By helping create opportunities through jobs, training, mentoring or any form of support, this will facilitate the Youth’s journey towards Integration, allowing them to grow and prosper, contribute to economic growth, and chart their own path out of poverty. Thus, they will be able to hold their place of greater freedom in the world of tomorrow."
Together, let’s act for the future of the Youth!
