Globe Labs Supports YSEALI in Empowering the Filipino Youth

Globe Telecom through its developer arm Globe Labs shows its support with the US Embassy to bring President Barack Obama’s Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative (YSEALI) to the Filipino youth.

With this, the U.S. Embassy hosted a networking night at A Space in Makati, which brought young Filipino students, entrepreneurs, artists and professionals who are active in their own communities, thus encouraging them to join YSEALI and spread the word. 

It is said that about 65% of people in the ASEAN region are under the age of 35. And it is important to harness their potentials because the youth are innovative, creative, and eager to contribute their ideas and energy to improve not only their own lives, but the lives of others in their communities.

What is YSEALI?    

YSEALI is a signature program by the White House to strengthen leadership development and networking in ASEAN, deepen engagement with young leaders on key regional and global challenges, and strengthen people-to-people ties between the United States and young Southeast Asian leaders.  

The Young Southeast Asian LeadersInitiative (YSEALI) was launched in 2013 by U.S. President Barack Obama. It consists of brilliant young leaders aged 18-35 years from Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia, Burma, Philippines, Laos, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
