Are you a Gen Z leader? Then our podcast is for you!

Leadership starts with one’s self. I know that interacting with motivated leaders will further ignite my desire to build my character as well as others’. As I create myself, I will also be able to lead others better.
— Isabel Chin, Makati Hope Christian School

What do we do?

Young Bridging Leaders Program


Become a Young Bridging Leader (YBL) when you join our exciting partnership program with AYC, the Asean Youth Community, implemented in collaboration with YGoal Inc.

In 2019, YBL moved to Carmona City where the Municipal Government is supporting high-school leaders to develop innovative projects that will benefit their communities.

YBL started in collaboration with the ASEAN Youth Leaders Association to support teams of high-school students from Zamboanga, Leyte, and Metro Manila developed their leadership around sustainability projects in communities.

Testimonials from our young leaders

To be a leader, I think you would have to be patient and cooperative, you should be inspiring and should help build a team.
— Kelly Anne Price, Mahatma Gandhi International School
To be a good leader, you’ll have to be a good listener. A leader must be able to make his followers want to be leaders too.

Leaders are called to be the voice of the people. They take initiative to step up and make a change to serve the people around them. They are able to see greatness in every person and work in order to bring out the greatness in everyone.
