Words from Kabataan members: 

“Being in KBT really helps me figure out who I really am. As youth we bring out issues that influence not only us but also the Filipino community. We try to balance out the hard work we put into Kabataan and having fun. Being in Kabataan builds a strong bond between us and that is why I really enjoy being part of this group”  -Recy Flores

“I first started out in Kabataan as being apart of a cultural assembly. What we do is we organize and make plans for our future projects. Kabataan has helped me out in life because I learn more about social issues.” -Jackie Ballesteros
