About the project:
The job shadowing is part of a larger project that IPC Alumni is currently involved in with a number of organizations in Europe, Sri Lanka, Cambodia, Myanmar and the Philippines. The project’s aims are to promote strategic cooperation between youth organization and public bodies as well as private institutions such as businesses and government institutions.

The project will directly involve youth workers and youth leaders from European and Asian partners, representatives of the National, Regional and Local Government of the Philippines responsible for youth policy and governance, and Local Business leaders. The job shadowing will give you the opportunity to shadow elected youth policy makers and business leaders.

The participants will attend a 3 day orientation about the Philippines setting, how the government works and cultural sensitivity. Thereafter, they will be introduced to a National, Regional or a Local Government that deals with youth policy which they will stay for two weeks for observation and evaluation either of the assigned politicians. Finally, after the extensive two week -job shadowing proper, they will be given two days of debriefing of their experiences and the required reports that they need to submit before the end of the program.
