       Taking up responsibilities over a rather large community as a youth is both impressive yet pressuring-bringing. The youth today is slowly getting involved in a lot of socio-political stances and activities, making the traditional 'Sagguiniang Kabataan' innovate into a more able organ in the society and help in a lot of duties, especially in empowering the youth. While many are still hesitant and doubtful of what the youth can do, a significant number of courageous youth make the government function.
        In another episode of Voice of the Youth radio, two SK chairpersons from Mindanao, specifically Sarangani, were invited to share some of their activities, events, programs and experiences. Hon. Remon R. Vilbestre is the SL chairperson of Brgy. Labangal in Sarangani, who has been handling the council during this pandemic. He revealed that just like other SK councils, they were advocating for mental health and teenage pregnancy. They aimed to connect with their youth constituents by highlighting the most pressing issues that are relevant to them. However, he also explained that since combating this pandemic is the priority, funds for the SK projects were tight, which is why their council is maximizing and making do with what they have.
        Additionally, among their conducted projects were Kultura at Kabataan, Music and Arts Gala 2021, Sumerlympics 2021, GenSan Young Leaders Summit, and Young Entrpreneurship Boot Camp. To close off, Remon said that the youth should use their skills and talents in being a leader and helping the community.
