About Siklab Pilipinas

Redefining youth leadership

How we started

Nelson Mandela once said that the youth of today are the leaders of tomorrow. However, with the advent of technology and a more globalized society, young people are now discovering innovative ways for them to resolve long-standing issues in their communities.

We are no longer just leaders of tomorrow, we can be leaders now.

Siklab Pilipinas began as a small delegation of 20 passionate college students who attended the 2016 Harvard World Model United Nations, in Rome, Italy. After realizing the potential that young people have of becoming leaders in their communities now, the team decided to expand its operations by developing both local and international opportunities for young leaders in the Philippines.


Our ultimate goal is to form a community of Filipino youth who actively engage in discourse addressing societal issues, advocating social responsibility, and embodying the spirit of a true Filipino leader.


To foster a forward-thinking, globalized mindset amongst the Filipino youth through participation and involvement in local and international engagements that advocates the youth’s role in shaping the world
