Christmas is the season of giving. But for awesome people like the Awesome Team of AIB Training and Events, Christmas is the season of giving back.
Led by AIB’s Chief Awesome Officer and Founder Al Ian Barcelona, “The Awesome Outreach Program” was held last December 12 at the Manila Youth Reception Center. Around 100 at-risk teenage boys – so-called ‘juvenile delinquents’ of the society – attended the event for a day of fun, celebration and inspiration.
It was an outreach program with a heart, as motivational speakers from the AIB team and its partner organizations also did their share in giving inspiration and motivation for these young people, whom, through the aid and intervention of the government and organizations such as AIB, are on their way to being re-integrated to the society. Among the speakers present during the event were Pambansang Inspirasyon Lloyd Luna, and Pocholo “The VoiceMaster” Gonzales.
The speakers took turns onstage to inspire the participants to make better choices and to rekindle the fire of their passions and ambitions. A breakout session was also conducted, so that the participants get their turn to share their dreams and realizations as they journey towards healing and repentance.
The outreach program was made possible in partnership with DSWD, Elevaxion Project, Negosyo University and Creativoices Productions.
