About the Conference

Focused on leadership formation and training, SCAP gives highest priority to leadership conferences at all levels. The national leadership conferences are held every three years. It is conducted in 5 or 6 days with formation (study session) and council (business meeting).

SCA leadership conferences, initiated in the 1950s with guidance from Columban missionaries, provided student leaders with a platform for critical discussion and reflection on life concerns. Through the See-Judge-Act methodology, participants took meaningful action, becoming empowered to influence their communities positively. SCAP has continued these national gatherings since 1995, transitioning to an annual event until the agreement in 2002 to hold it every three years.

Regional conferences are held in between national conferences to strengthen clusters and arch/dioceses. This 14th National Leadership Conference will be attended by select high school and college leaders from member-arch/dioceses together with their animators and chaplains. It hopes to gather more than 150 participants from over 18 arch/dioceses in the country.

14th NLC Background and Theme

The 14th SCAP National Leadership Conference (NLC) aims to gather selected student leaders, animators, and chaplains from over 150 colleges, universities, and high schools nationwide to discuss issues affecting them and reflect on and discern concrete actions to be implemented in the next three years. It is also aimed at providing space for Catholic student leaders and youth ministers to deepen their understanding of the mission of the youth movement in today's world. Further, the 14th NLC will inspire and challenge Filipino youth communities to practice justice, peace, mercy, and love in their respective school communities and parishes.

 

The event coincides with the celebration of the SCA’s 88th Foundation Anniversary. Hence, the 14th SCAP NLC’s theme is Layag: Witnessing Faith @88. This theme is guided by the words of St. Paul, "The only one thing that counts is faith expressing itself through love” (Gal. 5:6).
