In culmination of the week-celebration of the “Linggo ng Kabataan” the Sangguniang Kabataan (SK) led by SK City Federation President Johana Mas, conducted an extensive clean-up in the long-stretch coastline of the R.T. Lim Boulevard last December 18, 2010.

The coastal clean-up was joined by more than 200 SK Chairmen and members from the 98 barangays of Zamboanga City who assembled themselves around 7 a.m. and had a fun-filled day of sweeping up the coastal area of the boulevard.

The celebration of the Linggo ng Kabataan in Zamboanga City started last December 12, 2010 with a Thanksgiving Mass held at the Metropolitan Cathedral Church. 

“Linggo ng Kabataan” is annually celebrated in accordance with Presidential Proclamation No. 99 which provides for its celebration throughout the country every second week of December to give more meaning to the participation of the youth in nation-building.

The coastal clean-up activity was also joined and supported by the National Youth Commission-Zamboanga Area Office through its Regional Head, Mr. Raymond B. Domingo and the City Government.
