The YMCA National Assembly of High School Students is a gathering of selected student leaders from different public and private high schools nationwide. It is a venue by which they could share their views and ideas about current issues and concerns affecting their lives. They are provided an opportunity to formulate concrete plan of actions that they may implement in their respective schools.
The team was coached by Mr. Kit Del Mundo, Ms. Winona Morales, Mr. Jerwin Derilo, and Ms. Jenny Pre.
