8th Pintig Adolescent Dev’t Program to be held online

| Written by Padayon UP

The Department of Human and Family Development Studies of the College of Human Ecology will hold the annual and eighth Pintig from Nov. 14 to 25.

This year’s Pintig, unique as it is the first time it will be held online via Zoom and Facebook Live streaming, is made possible through a collaboration with the UPLB Human and Family Development Society and Pintig Adolescent Development and Psychosocial Support Program.

The holding of Pintig began in 2013 to provide a venue for free workshops and forum on psychosocial issues and concerns among adolescents.

It aims to provide a safe space for reflection about healing and well-being, with activities geared toward holistic, transformative, and empowering experience among its participants.

In response to the clamor for health promotion and education amid the pandemic, the organizers designed the series of webinars to focus on adolescent well-being, coping, and youth participation.

Its theme “TRANSCEND: Youth Rising up to a Better Normal,” emphasizes the pivotal role of the youth in creating a caring and compassionate community in times of crisis. 

The first episode, scheduled at 3 PM on Nov. 14, will tackle healing, well-being, and caring for the whole person in the new normal.

The second episode, at 3 PM on Nov. 21, will discuss youth participation in the time of COVID-19.

The third and culminating episode, slated at 5 PM on Nov. 25, will focus on rising up and living a better normal.

Just as in previous years, Pintig is free and open to interested participants from UPLB, nearby communities, and areas catered to by partner organizations.

Participants should pre-register online at the following:
