PAGADIAN CITY – The Volunteer Leaders Association of the Philippines (VLAP) in close coordination with the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) and the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Office (DA-RFU)-9 will spearhead the conduct of VLAP National Convention on Oct. 1-3, 2014 at Farmers Haven, Dao, this City.

This year’s theme is “VLAP @ 50: Mobilizing Holistic Development Initiatives through Volunteerism and Oneness.”

More or less 300 VLAP members, officers, ATI and DA-RFU staff from all over the country are expected to participate in the convention.

Mr. Rudy N. Mostar, VLAP national president said VLAP constitutes significant segment in the Rural Based Organization (RBO) and serves as catalyst in farm youth (4H) development and empowerment.

“VLAP also serves as local support system that provides vital fragment in crafting timely and relevant interventions for more awareness concerning 4-H club works and reaching out to more numbers of youth in their respective communities,” Mostar said,
Moreover, he said, these volunteers play a great role in supplementing the government’s efforts toward agricultural development.
