Voter campaign boosts activities to spur more Filipinos to register


Junior Chamber International (JCI) Philippines bolsters its #AmbagKo Rehistro. Boto. campaign initiatives to encourage more Filipinos to register with the registration extended until October 30.

As it continues to harness digital platforms to shore up campaign efforts, JCI Philippines, the first nationally organized leadership development organization established in Asia, has lined up an online leadership training for the general public.

The recently held first session, A Talk with Thought Leaders, was a Facebook live event featuring leaders and experts from different industries. The 3-hour session covered topics such as business innovation and digital transformation, family relationships and mental health, estate planning and real estate.

JCI Philippines is also set to kick off its Emerging Leaders program, which aims to help the youth develop leadership skills and learn the principles of building positive relationship. It will also guide them in improving decision-making, priority setting, critical thinking and interpersonal skills.

The first Emerging Leaders session is scheduled for the last week of October and will include eight to 10 trainers. The main topics will go live on Facebook and all other workshops will be conducted over Zoom. Plans are afoot to make this a quarterly initiative beginning next year. JCI will also be launching other online interactive activities such as trivia nights, a digital art competition and raffles to engage more netizens.

To reach more Filipinos, in particular the youth, JCI Philippines has been onboarding social-media personalities in the #AmbagKo campaign. A recent episode of Tito Tuesdays, the campaign’s weekly podcast on Facebook, featured Tawag ng Tanghalanseason 2 grand champion Janine Berdin. The It’s Showtime personality joined hosts Dyard Magsipoc and Glenn Dasmarinas in discussing why young people should register as voters.

Other social-media influencers have been joining #AmbagKo as well. Jae Miranda, a fan-favorite TikToker, shared a photo of his purple thumb mark on his Facebook page with the caption: “With Filipinos 18 to 35 years old numbering 40 million or 37 percent of the entire electorate eligible to vote in 2022, according to the Philippine Statistics Authority and Comelec, millennial and Gen Z Filipinos play a key role in shaping the future of the Philippines.”
