PHOTO FILE. Voters register for the 2022 election.

MANILA, Philippines – About 62 million Filipinos are registered to vote in the general election on May 9, although that number is expected to increase once the Election Commission (Comelec) adds the names of those who registered two weeks before the October 31. 30 deadline.

Of the 62 million voters registered on October 18, more than half, or 32.7 million, belong to the youth sector, according to Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez. About 5 million people vote for the first time.

In the last election of 2019, there were 61 million registered voters.

On May 9, 2022, voting hours will be from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m., according to Comelec commissioner Marlon HELMETJO. But that may be extended depending on how many people are still lined up at polling stations at 7 p.m. or earlier, he told lawmakers on Wednesday at a hearing of the House committee on suffrage and electoral reforms. .

“We don’t expect this to end at 7 p.m. It will continue until everyone inside or within 30 yards is [accommodated]. We have procedures on this, ”he said.

Helmetjo added that they had not yet released detailed campaign period guidelines for candidates as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to pose a threat to the public.

But the electoral body has already started accepting requests for local postal votes.

Only government officials and employees, including military and police personnel, as well as members of the media and their technical and support staff, may avail themselves of this option if posted to locations where they are not registered. to vote on May 9, 2022. Qualified absent voters can vote on April 27, 28 and 29 but only for the president, vice president, senators and party list representatives.

The role of Designated Safeguarding Officers (DSLs) in youth organizations needs to be strengthened and supported through improved training and support, according to youth sector organizations.

LSDs are appointed by voluntary and statutory youth organizations to advocate for safeguarding. They are also the main point of contact for other agencies when child protection referrals are made.

According to a report by the National Youth Agency and involving the NSPCC, UK Youth and London Youth, the role of DSL “has become more complex and difficult than ever” and needs to be overhauled.

The report, Keeping young people in sight, asserts that LSDs are unable to “fulfill their role effectively” due to a lack of support to cope with “ever increasing expectations, responsibilities and knowledge”.

Growing mental health issues among young people, online mischief, disclosure of abuse, preventing radicalization, and managing risk around offenders are among the wide array of day-to-day issues that LSDs face, with few support and gaps in their training.

About half of DSLs have no verified backup training qualifications and, when offered, it is sketchy, the NYA report adds.

“Interviews with the DSLs highlighted the wide variety of training available and although most of the DSLs who attended the training found it relevant, they also said it was basic and assumed that most of the training was the same. Very few have had training related to adult protection, ”their report indicates.

He adds that “the continued support and supervision” of LSDs is “weak and inconsistent, with only half of the feeling that they received the frequency of job-based supervisory support they needed.”

Only a quarter said they had benefited from reflective supervision regarding their safeguarding work.

LSDs are “the keystone” of the work of youth organizations to ensure the safety of people and are “the internal champion of protection who sets the direction of action and will provide support to those who have been injured”, indicates their report.

“They are an essential part of the team to ensure that young people facing abuse, neglect and exploitation are kept in sight. However, without the right support for DSL, protection systems are weakened, ”he adds.

The report calls for detailed regulation around the role, which is currently without a formal set of specific expectations and responsibilities.

One of the recommendations is that LSDs should also be seen as a “position of trust” in law. They should also be offered full legal protection if they report in the public interest.

The development of a national framework of professional standards for LSDs is also requested, in order to facilitate their training and compare their skills.

Meanwhile, separate research found that 97 percent of sexual exploitation of children references to the charity Catch22 have an element online or on social media.

The research, funded by the Violence Reduction Unit in London, also found that two-thirds of young people had seen violent or explicit content online during the Covid-19 lockdown.

The recommendations include safeguarding the rights of children to learn, play and be informed when they are online. This goal is “too often absent from discussions of online safety,” the research says.

In addition, teachers and protection officials need increased access to resources to tackle harm online and social media companies need to be “held accountable for inaction”.

On June 23, 2021, the Gauteng Provincial Legislature (GPL) convened a Virtual Sector Parliament, a public platform for young people in the province to debate and recommend their own solutions to the socio-economic challenges they face.

Through the Youth Sector Parliament, 45 youth engaged directly with Gauteng’s executive and decision-makers, representing their peers from five regions of Gauteng. Debates and focused on innovative service delivery initiatives involving young people themselves.

As Gauteng and the country grapple with skyrocketing youth unemployment, violence against women, economic exclusion and Covid-19, this platform has provided GPL with an opportunity to engage resolutely with young people to solicit their recommendations on how to remedy it.

About 150 young people from across the province were mobilized in regional workshops and were part of the audience. The session was open to the media and the general public.

The webinar began with a silent prayer, followed by the singing of the national anthem. The members and various dignitaries were then recognized and the main points of the debate were outlined.

It was promised that the results of the session would be held and tabled by the portfolio committee, and the resolutions tabled in the provincial legislature. Resolutions taken will be addressed by Education MEC Panyaza Lesufi; “We put our heads on the block,” said Matome Chiloane, chairman of the education commission. Young people will be kept informed and involved, he promised.

A keynote speech was then given by Lesufi, who said that 125,000 health workers in Gauteng had been vaccinated to protect young people. He explained how the pandemic and the lockdown impacted Gauteng, which is small but has a large population, and is the epicenter of the third wave. He expressed his condolences to the families who suffered the deaths and said the health sector is under immense pressure; the legislature must be reviewed to ensure that all institutions can best adapt to the pandemic.

Young people are significantly less likely to contract Covid-19 and experience side effects; they are less at risk and are resistant enough to fight it. But children still need to be protected, especially since mutations in the virus still occur. Identifying hot spots is essential in the fight against the pandemic. The pandemic has also brought to light the “big black cloud” of gender-based violence (GBV), which is a “stain on the conscience of the nation”. The GPL “will spare no effort” to eradicate GBV, Lesufi said.

He then explained how young people should be part of the economy and how education plays a vital role in this regard. The GPL contributes to this with its scholarship program; there are also several programs in place to improve the skills of young people in Gauteng and provide them with work experience. “This country belongs to the youth.

Youth unemployment

The Honorable Rhulani Baloyi of Winterveld opened her fiery speech on the challenges of young people facing health services by telling MEC: “We don’t need more lockdowns, we need jobs and services”. During the lockdown, several essential services were suspended; HIV testing has been suspended, abortion services have been suspended, and family planning services have been suspended. He said there is still huge discrimination against the LGBTIQ + community when it comes to health services. He added that young people are depressed because they are not working, but if they go to clinics with symptoms of depression, they are “the laughing stock”.

Baloyi asked, what can we do with the R350 grant? Things are much more expensive now than in 2015. There are long lines in clinics and hospitals, and disinfection is carried out by security guards; we need youth health ambassadors. He said there was ineffective social media engagement from the Department of Health and MEC.

Next, the Honorable Noluvuyo Mogale, who advised the government to look at traditional African methods of treating Covid-19; science does not have all the answers to Africa’s problems. She said youth employment was not at the heart of the Department of Health’s response to Covid-19. She said the effects of the foreclosure will impact young people in the long run; that the R350 distress allowance was insufficient; and that temporary jobs are not efficient. Since the vaccine does not reach enough people, the virus will be with us for a very long time.

The presidential initiative for youth employment employed 300,000 young people, but only for a few months; “we can only hope, plead and pray” for contracts to be extended. The youth unemployment rate “is a pandemic in itself”. We need permanent and visible positions. Why are provincial and national governments not investing in youth, the future of the country? Many young people were excluded from the distress scholarship and only 10 people were assigned to oversee the qualification process, Mogale said.

Hon. Andile Ramokgwatedi said that the young people of the province have solutions to the challenges of the health department; above all, it must prioritize youth employment, through an action plan. National and provincial departments should coordinate their efforts in this regard.

Hon. Mbali Maseko said that with every challenge comes an opportunity. If the money set aside for young people does not reach them, “we are creating fertile ground for a youth revolution.” Young people cannot eat our speeches; we need to create action plans that will have results in the lives of young people. Young people are not looking for handouts; they want to serve. Covid-19 is deadly, but “the only pandemic that will cause a revolution is poverty”.

The audience having asked no questions, the meeting proceeded to the adoption of this part of the report. It was approved unanimously.

GBV

The second order concerned the health department’s strategies on GBV and young people during the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions. GBV has been described as “the second worst pandemic in the country”; many children have been affected. Strong interventions are needed and facilities must be made available to victims of GBV.

The Honorable Lebogang Tshomo quoted Charlotte Maxeke to start her speech, and it said that GBV, femicide and rape have their roots in patriarchy. Young boys must learn not to rape. Many women are abused but cannot speak out because they are dependent on their abusers. Many abused women are unaware of the support available to them; information must be better shared.

Hon. Abraham Mabelane said GBV is a deep problem in South Africa. There are many forms of violence against women and girls; the statistics are appalling. If your child talks about abuse, you need to take it seriously. There are many programs that help people who are abused.

Hon. Tumi Motumi pointed out that the government is not doing enough to change violent men; instead, the money is spent to help those they mistreat.

Hon. Tseko Sebitla said that many children are affected by GBV at a very young age and that programs need to be in place to help them; we have to support the programs that already exist. The child is the responsibility of the community, not just the family; community support forums should be encouraged. With the right support, these children can heal.

No questions were raised on this order of the report, which was adopted unanimously.

Skills development strategies

The third order concerned the debate on the skills development strategies of the government approach to young people in order to fight unemployment.

Hon. Luyando Ndaba said that the education system must be aligned with the needs of the country; many think it is obsolete. What can be done to prevent young people from dropping out? The private sector must participate in upgrading the skills of young people. Corruption can be one of the causes of unemployment: if you don’t know anyone in the system, you don’t get a job. Young people are encouraged to open small businesses, but many have been forced to close due to foreclosure level five.

Hon. Kabelo Khoali said that we cannot solve the unemployment problem without looking at its historical nature; colonial history still weighs on us today. The school curriculum prefers black children to be laborers. The economy belongs to a few white families; radical economic transformation must be implemented immediately. The economy must be placed in the hands of the people. Public entities are meant to be platforms for economic transformation.

Hon. N Sindane said that many children are not qualified for higher education, but we are entering a technological age which requires specialized skills. If we look at the matrix results, we see that more than 50% of young people are lost at the end of their schooling, and do not have the skills required for today’s economy.

Hon. P Mthimunye said it is a “miserable experience” to be a young person in South Africa today. It is because of our bad upbringing. Gauteng’s economy has grown only 1% in recent years, well below the immigration rate; imports are greater than exports. The province is also plagued by drug addiction among young people.

Hon. David Magate said the statistics for youth unemployment are “staggering”. To solve this problem, the young person has to volunteer to gain experience. Local economies must be exploited, especially the township economy, in the same way foreigners exploited the spaza economy; suppliers for spazas must be found in the townships.

This part of the report is also adopted, seconded and approved unanimously.

Youth work officials paid tribute to Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, who died last Friday at the age of 99.

The 73-year-old husband of Queen Elizabeth II passed away peacefully at Windsor Castle on Friday April 9, Buckingham Palace said in a statement.

Prince Philip founded the Duke of Edinburgh Award (DofE) for boys in February 1956 with the aim of supporting the development of young men.

“In the post-war era, His Royal Highness wanted to bridge the gap between leaving formal education at age 15 and entering national service at age 18,” says the website of the charity DofE.

In 1957, the program was extended to girls with the DofE Award for 14 to 21 year olds launched in 1969.

One million young people started their prize in 1975.

In 2001, Prince Philip handed over the chairmanship of the trustees of the charity DofE to Sir Tom Farmer, but remained a patron until his death.

DofE has supported 6.7 million young people in the UK alone since its inception by the Duke of Edinburgh.

The organization paid tribute to its patron on Twitter, saying: “It is with great sadness that we acknowledge the passing of our patron HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, he will be sadly missed.”

DofE Executive Director Ruth Marvel said:“The Duke’s timeless vision for young people has never been more relevant or necessary. DofE has played a crucial role in helping young people survive and thrive despite the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic, and we will continue to build on its legacy.

“The Duke has been a longtime advocate for young people, believing in the potential of every individual and creating in DofE what he saw as a ‘do-it-yourself growth kit’. We are honored to continue the work of HRH, to ensure that all young people, especially those from marginalized groups, can benefit from the better educational outcomes, job prospects, community ties and improved mental health associated with DofE. .

The association calls on those who participated in the DofE to share their stories on its website.

Youth work officials also paid tribute to the Duke of Edinburgh on social media.

Leigh Middleton, Executive Director of the National Youth Agency (NYA) wrote: “His Royal Highness Prince Phillip was a giant in the youth sector, who through the The DofE program has inspired and enabled millions of young people to learn, discover and collaborate to improve their lives and their communities. Our thoughts for all his family and those he inspired.

A statement from the NYA said: “We are saddened to learn of the news of the death of Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. Prince Philip has supported many young people through The Duke of Edinburgh’s program and will be sadly missed. Our hearts go out to Her Majesty The Queen and the Royal Family. “

National Education Union president Robin Bevan called for a “moment of reflection” to remember Prince Philip alongside teachers and school staff who died during the pandemic at the organization’s national conference then that the news of his death broke.

Speaking of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Prize, he told delegates: “These opportunities have transformed the lives of young people and this is one aspect of Prince Philip’s legacy that we must pay tribute to.

Today the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted the new Youth Sector Strategy 2030 which will provide political guidance to the 50 States Parties to the European Cultural Convention for the next ten years.

The creativity, dynamism, social commitment and skills of young people are crucial for any sustainable democratic society. For nearly fifty years, the youth sector of the Council of Europe has supported generations of young people and their organizations to become agents of social change and helps public authorities to implement participatory youth policies.

The new Youth 2030 sector strategy will give new impetus to this work in four thematic priorities:

  • Youth revitalizing pluralist democracy,
  • Young people’s access to rights,
  • Live together in peaceful and inclusive societies and
  • Youth work.

The Committee of Ministers, when adopting the new strategy, underlined the importance of the geographical scope and the unique role of the youth sector of the Council of Europe and its instruments, including the co-management system, European Youth Centers in Strasbourg and Budapest, the Youth Foundation and the partnership with the European Commission in the youth field.

The Youth 2030 sector strategy is launched as part of the Georgian Presidency of the Committee of Ministers (November 2019 – May 2020) which attaches the utmost importance to the full and meaningful participation of young people in European societies, and aims in particular to “strengthen democracy through education, culture and the commitment of young people youth “.
