As a YORP-registered organization, Pilipinas Rotaract MDIO and the Rotaract Clubs in the Philippines will now enjoy the privileges as provided for in the 2018 Revitalized Youth Organization Registration Guidelines.
The Youth Organization Registration Program (YORP) is part of the National Youth Commission (NYC) of the Philippines mandate to register youth and youth-serving organizations and provide them with support programs pursuant to Republic Act 8044 or Youth in Nation Building Act.
