It aims to connect the classroom learning of students on democratic citizenship with activities such as research that immerse them in the community and expose them to the dynamics of public policy formulation, implementation, and evaluation. It has been cited by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) as one of the best practices in enhancing youth participation in electoral cycles.
It is being implemented in two strands – one for high school students via local showcases and another for college students and teachers through the Leadership Communities (LeadCom) program which is being conducted in partnership with Ayala Foundation, Inc.
