Changing the nation one community at a time, this is what the TAYO Awards Foundation Inc. is doing. TAYO Foundation believes that the Philippines and its youth are destined for a brighter tomorrow. The Foundation has been searching for and recognizing youth organizations engaged in changing the lives of its members and their local community.
The Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) Awards Foundation, Inc. is proud to announce that it is officially launching TAYO 10. Starting on 24 February 2012, TAYO Foundation will be accepting search entries from all over the country.
Established in 2002, TAYO Foundation is regarded as one of the leading award-giving bodies for outstanding youth organizations in the Philippines. It aims to discover and laud exceptional youth organizations that have contributed to the development of their local communities, schools, or work places, through their innovative projects. To date, more than 1000 youth organizations have joined the search and are now part of the fast-growing TAYO youth network.
TAYO Awards is done every year and is open to all youth groups, organizations, clubs, and societies whose membership and leadership are composed of at least 15 youth members (15-30 years old). The winning 10 youth organizations will receive cash grants of P50,000.00 each to fund existing or future projects.
This year marks TAYO Awards’ 10th anniversary. With the theme, TAYO [R]EVOLUTION: Isang Dekada ng Pagbabago, TAYO Foundation will be conducting activities this year aside from the annual search. For 2012, TAYO will look back at a decade of its history and evolution while it takes on the future, keeping the revolutionary spirit of the youth at its core.
There will be events to look forward to that will cater not only TAYO participants, alumni, and partners, but supporters and anyone interested as well. To be updated about these events, like TAYO on Facebook and follow TAYO on Twitter.

TAYO 10 is presented by the Coca-Cola Foundation Philippines, Inc., and organized by the National Youth Commission alongside the Office of Senator Kiko Pangilinan. Also supporting the search are: Philippine Council of Young Political Leaders, Department of Social Welfare and Development, Lenovo Philippines, Jollibee, and Cebu Pacific.
