3rd day of September, 2011, the PeaceTech Iligan Ambassadors, also called as PEACEnolohiya conducted the day workshop in building peace at the MSU-IIT IPDM. It was our first time attending a seminar. We got to meet new people wherein they all  became our friends. We were able to gain knowledge particularly about using technology to build peace. The resource persons were all dynamic and nice. They are indeed masters of their own field. They were able to communicate to the audience through cracking jokes and sharing funny experiences.

Youth for Peace

on September 03, 2011 during the DAY WORKSHOP

We have learned in our seminar workshop that PEACEnolohiya has one mission and vision which is to promote peace using our modern technology. We are so honored at the same time happy because we are able to join and participate on the various activities we’ve done. 

We are very inspired as young people because according to the facilitator and mentor that "Kabataan ang pag-asa ng bayan" and it feels so good for we have realized that as teenagers we have a very important role to do here in our nation.

And we must put to our mind that we should not focus on things that divide us, but capitalize on the things that unite us.

Thank you so much for everything.

PeaceTech calls for application: National Youth Ambassadors for Peace Program 2012


The National Youth Ambassador for Peace Program is geared towards empowering young leaders to become effective volunteers for peace in the Philippines. In this program, PeaceTech is connecting 40 selected youth leaders in Metro Manila/Cebu region with 40 selected youth leaders in Mindanao through technology specifically videoconferencing to promote solidarity and increase understandingg about peace issues affecting them and the country as a whole.

In this program, a majority (if not all) of selected youth volunteers graduate to become PeaceTech Youth Ambassadors. To graduate, volunteers participate in five day and night formation workshops on peace education and on-line communication.

Youth Volunteers also spend time on a regular basis mentoring peace clubs in all participating program schools. High school students in Peace Clubs produce videos, which capture community concerns and questions around the peace process. Videos are then uploaded at for all key parties to the peace process to respond to.

Youth volunteers who graduate from formation workshops and who mentor Peace Clubs in schools become “Certified PeaceTech Ambassadors” at the end of the program and join the Annual General Assembly to become an official member of PeaceTech Embassy.

The PeaceTech Youth Ambassador Program consists of three components: Formation Workshops; Peace Club Mentoring; and General Assembly.

Phase 1: Formation Workshop

PeaceTech Inc and partners will select youth leaders who will participate in the formation and capacity building workshop. Workshops focus on:
• Peace Education
• ICT and social media for peace building
• Project Management
• Leadership and Team building

Workshops are five days and five nights. PTI holds these workshops simultaneously in Mindanao and Metro Manila.

Phase 2: Peace Club Mentoring

Peace Clubs are the outputs of PeaceTech’s Classroom Videoconference Program. These clubs are the “vehicles” through which students of classroom videoconferences report on community concerns around the peace process.

It is at peace clubs that youth volunteers practise those skills they have learned at Formation Workshops in project management, ICT and peace education. There is also a time commitment from youth volunteers because they are facilitating peace club meetings in schools and then supervising high school students in producing video reports.

Phase 3: General Assembly

After twelve months, the youth volunteers from all program cities hold one General Assembly. This is to deepen relations between PTI’s youth volunteers, reward volunteers for their work at peace clubs and to prepare youth volunteers for upcoming community projects, which they may implement.

At the end of the General Assembly, youth volunteers become PeaceTech Ambassadors and can officially join the PeaceTech Embassy.
