UB stude joins JENESYS Program

Samantha Loraine Salaysay, a 2nd-year student of the University of Bohol - Teachers’ College recently joined the Philippine delegation to the 26th Inbound Program of the Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange Students and Youths (JENESYS) last March 18 to 26, 2019 in Japan.

Salaysay who is taking up Bachelor of Culture and Arts Education was assigned together with other Filipino delegates and ASEAN and Timor-Leste participants to the group that focused on Protecting Historical Heritages in Okayama Prefecture. Aside from Salaysay's group, three other groups of delegates focused on Food and Tourism (Hokkaido), Disaster Prevention Technology (Miyagi), and History and Environment of Manufacturing (Aichi) respectively.

JENESYS is a project advanced by the Japanese government from the standpoint of providing a sound foundation for strong solidarity within Asia through large-scale youth exchange. The objective of this program is to provide opportunities for discovering and developing youth leaders who can help solve ASEAN’s problems by utilizing Japan's Experiences and Technologies with the ASEAN perspective to realize the action plans of Community Vision "ASEAN2025" over the next 10 years.

As disclosed by Dr. Janice Aurora Tirol-Namoc, Dean of the Student Personnel Services (SPS), Samantha Loraine underwent a series of interviews and evaluation by the SPS office prior to her nomination to the national screening committee. Since 2012, UB has sent participants to represent the Philippines in this international program. The Philippine delegation was composed of university and graduate students from different regions who have specialization in the program’s thematic areas.
