COMELEC’S VOTERS EDUCATION PROGRAM
IN PARTNERSHIP WITH

MANILA JAYCEES
ROTARY CLUB OF PASAY WEST
INTERNATIONAL VISITORS PROGRAM
CHRISTIAN CONVERGENCE FOR GOOD GOVERNANCE, and
CONSORTIUM ON ELECTORAL REFORMS

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
1.THIS PROJECT WILL MOLD THE MINDS OF THE YOUTH BY TEACHING THEM ABOUT THE NATURE OF GOVERNMENT, THE MISSION OF COMELEC, THEIR CIVIC DUTIES, AND THEIR RIGHT OF
SUFFRAGE.

2.TO DO THIS, WE SHALL CONDUCT A 1-HOUR LECTURE PER CLASSROOM IN 4TH YEAR HIGH
SCHOOL AND IN COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES.

3 THE GOAL IS NOT THE FINISHED TALK BUT THE CONTINUITY OF THE TALKS AND COMELEC
PRESENCE – WEEKLY, MONTHLY, YEARLY, ON AND ON FOR A TRUE “CONTINUING VOTERS
EDUCATION PROGRAM”.

4.SPEAKERS SHALL BE IN GROUPS OF 5 THAT WILL SCHEDULE CLASSROOM LECTURES IN
CONSULTATION WITH THE DEAN, PROFESSOR, TEACHER OR PRINCIPAL.

5.EACH MEMBER WILL DELIVER NO MORE THAN 2 CLASSROOM TALKS A WEEK.

6.TO COVER AS MANY SCHOOLS AS POSSIBLE, ONLY 1 TEAM WILL BE ASSIGNED TO EACH
SCHOOL IN ANY WEEK.

7.ADDITIONALLY, THE AUDIENCE MAY BE THE ENTIRE STUDENT POPULATION AT ONCE DURING A
SPECIAL PROGRAM OR GATHERING, IN WHICH CASE WE SHALL SEND THE BEST SPEAKERS.
BUT THE CLASSROOM TALKS WILL STILL PROCEED WEEKLY, MONTHLY AND ALL-YEAR-ROUND.

8.THE SPEAKERs/LECTURERs WILL BE SELECTED AND TRAINED ACCORDINGLY. THEY WILL BE FROM COMELEC AND NGOs.

PROJECT PURPOSE
(WHAT GOALS WILL BE ACHIEVED):

1. THE COMELEC AS AN INSTITUTION WILL GAIN THE TRUST OF THE ACADEME AND THE YOUTH.

2. FAITH IN DEMOCRACY WILL BE STRENGTHENED.

> THE STUDENTS WILL BECOME AWARE OF ELECTION AS ESSENTIAL REQUIREMENT OF
DEMOCRACY.

> IN THE PROCESS, COMELEC PERSONNEL WILL BECOME SEASONED SPEAKERS OR EDUCATORS.

> NGO VOLUNTEERS WILL LIKEWISE BECOME EXPERT VOTER EDUCATORS.

> COMELEC VOTERS EDUCATION PROGRAM WILL AT LAST SWITCH ON AND BECOME
INSTITUTIONALIZED IN COMELEC AND THE ACADEME.
