The Ayala Young Leaders Alliance (AYLA) is the official organization of alumni of the Ayala Young Leaders Congress (AYLC), the flagship program of the Ayala Group of Companies to develop young Servant-Leaders for our country. The Alliance is composed of students and working professionals from various sectors of society. The Alliance serves as a resource and support network for its members and for other Filipino youth leaders.

Since its 12th congress in February 2010, the Alliance now consists of 882 members located across the Philippines, with several alumni located in other parts of the globe. AYLA operates across the country with 18 chapters and five ad hoc groups located in various parts of the Philippines. Through the Alliance, AYLC alumni find opportunities to work together on different initiatives such as leadership camps, disaster relief drives, educational programs, medical missions, livelihood programs, and other community development efforts.

The Alliance provides a channel for dialogue, consultation, and education on youth, local, and national issues to help its members and other youth leaders form their own perspectives and take informed and purposive action. In the long run, AYLA aspires to be a resource for leadership formation among the youth in the communities it is present in. The Alliance also maintains ties with the Ayala Business Club and its various chapters for strategic programs of the Ayala group.

The alliance contributes to community and nation building through the leadership of its local chapter and members. In the past few years, AYLA has initiated several leadership programs such as the annual Iloilo Young Leaders Congress (IYLC), Hagonoy Young Leaders Program (HYLEAP) and the Cebu Young Leaders Summit (CYLS), as well as election and education related programs. The alliance has also been in the forefront in relief campaigns and disaster management. It likewise saw to the creation of Starfish Magazine, the first Filipino youth empowerment magazine in the nation.

Over the years, the Alliance has been a strong avenue for alliance and network building with other organizations and youth groups. Notably, AYLA has been one of the lead convenors of Youth Vote Philippine for the past two years, bringing the youth to the forefront during the electoral process.

    • Hi Ms. Leila,

      Apologies for getting back to you this late. Nevertheless, we hope that this still gets to you. We would be happy to hear of possible partnerships and tie-ups with your school. Getting into the annual Ayala Young Leaders Congress (AYLC) requires a series of screening and processing of applicants. While for the AYLC 2011 applications are already closed and screening is ongoing, you may visit our website – http://www.ayalayoungleaders.ph – and check out the qualifications for joining the congress. This may help prepare your school for next year’s call for application.
