SSVP-OSGP Youth Encounter ‘08

Date Posted: Aug 2, 2008 at 01:31:16 AM


In an attempt to instill Vincentian spirituality and values in that important segment of the community—the Student Assistants—a seminar dubbed Youth Encounter '08 was conducted last July 5 and 6 at the La Salette Shrine and Retreat Center. The event aimed at strengthening the bond among the neophyte scholars of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul-Ozanam Study Grant Program (SSVP-OSGP). It was successfully held through the joint efforts of the Office of Student Assistance & Scholarships (OSAS), the Office of the Vice President for Student Affairs, and the SSVP-OSGP executive officers.

 

The inspiring talks by Fr. Francisco Nicolas P. Magnaye, Jr., C.M.-VP for Student Affairs, Mr. Joseph Duyan-CMO lay minister, Mr. Robert F. Fajutnao-Adviser of SSVP-OSGP and SA alumnus, and Mr. Francis Galicia-former President of SSVP-OSGP, combined with team-building activities and catchy cheers set the convivial mood of the gathering. They gave the participants a truly meaningful and unforgettable experience.

 

Youth Encounter '08—thanks to the efforts of OSAS Director Ms. Alice Quilicot—was revived after 10 long years.

 

"The life of a student assistant is not easy; I know it won’t be," went a tearful testimonial given by a participant, one of 355 student assistants who are willing to sacrifice to get a quality education.
