September 21. 2012 – The Search for the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations Year 10 is only two weeks away from the Area Finals. Fifty-three (53) youth organizations from NCR, Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao have been visited by TAYO partners for the on-site visit and interview with their project entry’s beneficiaries and stakeholders. Each TAYO partner who conducted the field validation sent their reports and recommendations to the TAYO Secretariat.
Last September 13, 2012, the TAYO Awards Foundation together with representatives from the National Youth Commission, reviewed the validation reports, project briefs, and supporting documents of the fifty-three youth orgs. After thorough deliberations, 40 youth organizations were selected to participate in the TAYO Area Finals and be a step closer in being named one of the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations of 2012.
