U Caravan continues to empower Taguig students
The "Youth Goes to U" Caravan for the year 2023 took place at the Technological University of the Philippines (TUP), Western Bicutan, on Monday, May 15. Aligned with Mayor Lani Cayetano's Transformative, Lively, and Caring City agenda, the program aims to bring educational and youth-oriented initiatives closer to the students of the city.
Approximately 250 students from various student organizations actively participated in the programs and activities organized by the Youth Caravan. Led by SK Federation President Mary Ruth "Beng" Maximo and Taguig 2nd District Councilor Jomil Serna, the caravan featured three Pocket Workshops: "Jumpstart your Career," which focused on preparing CVs and resume writing; "The Youth Voice Project," a workshop on public speaking and impromptu speaking; and "Make it Up," a workshop on enhancing one's appearance during meetings and gatherings.
To make the experience more enjoyable and exciting for the students, several games and challenges were organized, including sack races, a one-legged race, a jump box challenge, the Active Transport Challenge (biking), basketball shooting, and mountain climbing. These activities aimed to foster camaraderie, physical fitness, and a spirit of healthy competition among the participants.

By providing access to educational workshops, interactive sessions, and engaging activities, the caravan creates an environment conducive to learning, growth, and personal development.
