If volunteering for a cause was a part of your New Year’s resolutions then this might be the event for you.

On January 13—that’s this Saturday—I am M.A.D. (Making a Difference) kicks off the year with M.A.D. Talks 2018: Nagmahal, Nasaktan, Nag-volunteer. REPEAT! at the Meralco Theat

The event will bring together 150 youth volunteers from all over the country, including young professionals, student leaders, and members of the academe to listen and learn from each other and the invited resource speakers.

The forum will focus on the bayanihan culture and will promote volunteerism among the Filipino youth.

The first M.A.D. Talks is done in partnership with the Philippine National Volunteer Service Coordinating Agency (PNVSCA) and One Meralco Foundation, Inc.

I am M.A.D., a millennial-led collective of Filipino volunteers, is also preparing a solid list of events for the year. The group was a national finalist in the on-going 15th Search for the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations (TAYO) Awards.

The group will also launch its re-vamped website and a multimedia promotional ‘Call for Volunteers’ to further spread its advocacy and mobilize the Filipino youth.

Christian Marx Rivero, co‑founder and chairman of I am Making A Difference, Inc., said that student leaders can further hone their potential by joining M.A.D. Camps. These 15 volunteer activities will be headed by I am M.A.D. across the country, to be announced during this forum.
