GoodGovPH, Inc. is a youth-led movement for good governance in the Philippines. We believe that upholding good governance is imperative in sustaining a just and humane Philippine society.
We believe in the power of the Filipino people. We work with citizen volunteers nationwide to initiate and localize programs that promote good governance.
We believe that education can help bridge gaps in governance. With our group of mentors, we offer training programs for our members, Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) officials, and youth and civic leaders.
We believe that good governance is a collective effort. Our programs are designed to build a proactive and collaborative community of good governance advocates.
We believe that everyone has a stake in governance. We conduct research on governance issues, encourage institutions to widen platforms for citizen participation, and engage citizens to participate in local governance and policymaking.
GoodGovPH, Inc. was founded by a group of undergraduate students from the University of the Philippines Diliman. After organizing the Philippine Good Governance Summit in 2018, they realized the capacity of the Filipino youth to champion good governance in their respective communities.
Together with fellow youth leaders and young professionals in public service, private sector, and civil society, GoodGovPH was established as a youth-led movement for good governance in the Philippines. GoodGovPH was registered under the National Youth Commission Youth Organization Registration Program (NYC-YORP) in 2019 and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in 2020.
Today, GoodGovPH is composed of over a hundred volunteer members nationwide. In 2020, it was recognized as one of the Ten Accomplished Youth Organizations in the Philippines by the TAYO Awards Foundation.
The Philippine Good Governance Summit held in April 2018 was a precursor to GoodGovPH.
