Young Unlimited is one of Young Focus’ programs that deals with the youth who are most at risk and who have lost their interest in education. Dropping out of school, many become addicted to sniffing glue and have no intention of ever completing their education.
One way of recapturing their passion for education is through workshops and different life skills activities, helping them discover and develop their talents. We started teaching them ukulele as well – and the kids fell in love with it! We were invited to play in different Young Focus’ events, which boosted the confidence of these kids. We even performed in front of International School of Manila’s students. Also, our partner Rotaract Club of Manila invited YoUNgLI to perform in a benefit concert.
We keep teaching ukulele to youngsters. This musical instrument helps them divert their attention away from their bad habits to a new hobby. It even helps them to believe in themselves: that it’s never too late to develop their talents!
