YouLeaD serves as a platform to enable Filipino youth overseas to rediscover their Filipino roots and heritage. A program developed in 1983, YouLeaD (then referred to as Lakbay-Aral) has been enhanced and kept relevant with the youth of today to inculcate in them an appreciation of the richness of what it means to be a Filipino. YouLeaD combines learning through lectures on Philippine history and language, guided tours to scenic and historical landmarks, interaction with Filipino students, public officials and members of indigenous communities and participation in local festivities. The enhanced YouLeaD has developed new modules such as Tracing the Philippine Roots, Eco-Tourism, Arts and Culture, and Rest and Recreation for Wellness and has attracted participants from France, Spain, Switzerland, Middle East, China and the US.
