“The youth is the hope of our future”
Dr. Jose Rizal
The Model City Council (MCC) is a social venture that makes Dr. Jose Rizal’s vision into reality. It offers a unique platform for young Filipinos to create community-led solutions for their cities with the assistance of the local government.
The Model City Council started as the first Filipino entry to The Resolution Project’s Social Venture Challenge (SVC) 2016, held in Rome, Italy. Filled with hope, Our founder wanted to redefine youth leadership in the Philippines through an integrated public and private partnership with the government. After a successful final pitch, MCC received its first grant of $1,500 to jumpstart the venture in 3 pilot cities in the Philippines.
With a diverse team of volunteers dedicated to creating more inclusive systems for young people in the Philippines (perhaps in other nations in the near future), we continue to move forward with the goal of ensuring that no one is left behind.
