Over 30,000 students from different STI Campuses across the country will once again experience a one-of-a-kind learning opportunity as STI holds its 18th National Youth Convention (NYC) in key cities nationwide.
The STI National Youth Convention is the highly anticipated annual gathering of STI students that provides an alternative and innovative learning venue for students to discover the latest trends in technology, acquire the most in-demand and job-ready skills, and interact with fellow STIers from different STI campuses.
With the theme “STI Extreme: Unleash the X Factors in You,” the 18th STI NYC aims to empower the students with knowledge, expertise, and values that will help them become more productive members of their communities and outstanding professionals in the future.
The convention covers various topics that are highly relevant among today’s youth with the guidance of seasoned professionals and inspirational speakers from different industries.
The first topic, “Extreme Definition: Exercise Your Beliefs,” will be tackled by veteran broadcast journalist Ms. Jing Castañeda to encourage the students to become participative, responsible, and conscientious individuals. On the other hand, trainer and motivational speaker Mr. Alvin Belen will highlight the importance of teamwork and strong sense of community through the second topic, “Extreme Connection: Explore Your Network.” Lastly, “Extreme Revolution: Expand Your Horizons” will be discussed by Mr. Jet Nera, Managing Director of SHINE-JGNera Training Consultants, to inspire the students to become lifelong learners and pursue excellence in all facets of life.
