House Deputy Speaker and sports advocate Pia S. Cayetano is encouraging young Filipinos from different provinces to volunteer and take part in the Philippines’ hosting of the 30th South East Asian (SEA) Games.

The Philippine South East Asian Games Organizing Committee (PHISGOC), in cooperation with the Philippine Sports Commission (PSC) and Philippine Olympic Committee (POC), launched its Volunteers Program the other day to mobilize youth volunteers for the region’s premiere multi-sport event. Cayetano said local communities play an important role in ensuring the success of the country’s hosting of the SEA Games from November 30 to December 10, 2019.

“Once the organizing committees finalize all the venues for the games, we need each community within that area to volunteer, especially the youth,” she stressed.

“On a macro scale, the Philippines will be the host; but on a micro scale, we need to harness our local communities so that we can really win as one,” she added.

The Taguig congresswoman said engaging local communities for the 30th SEA Games could also boost local tourism in their respective areas.
