August 2 – 4, 2018 highlights the celebration of the 15 years of the Youth and Study Exchange (YES) Program in the Philippines. YES Program established by the Congress of the Federal Republic of the United States of America in response to the events of September 11, 2001, or what we popularly knew the 9/11 attack. In this momentous occasion, 100 YES Alumni participated in a series of sessions and workshops to come up with change-making projects in their respective communities.

The celebration ends with a peace concert dubbed as #YESforPeace: A Concert for a Cause in which OPM bands, spoken word artists, singers, and comedians rendered their talents advocating peace, diversity and other socially relevant issues.
