The Office of the Students Affairs and NTC Student Government collaborated to make an impactful leadership seminar entitled Alab ng Husay 2024 with a theme: Empowered Leadership; Sustaining Impact through Servant Leadership from January 31, 2024 to February 1, 2024 at the NTC Social Hall. 

Student leaders from the various organizations at NTC participated in the two-day seminar. Alab ng Husay 2024 also featured renowned speakers, interactive seasons, and a spirited project showcase, leaving a lasting impression on aspiring leaders. 

The first day of the Alab ng Husay focuses on growing together as servant leaders. Mr. Joseph Quisada, COO of Integrated Waste Management, shared insights on developing leadership through the concept of “Grow other, grow together.” Ms. Mary Ann Barcelon, a professional coach and trainer, explored the pillars of service, inspiration, and transformation in becoming a sustainable leader. 

Mr. Romeo Jose Taganas, Head of the Office of Student Affairs, also shared the art of servant leadership, emphasizing that leaders should lead with heart and serve purposefully. Mr. Paolo Josef Blando, Programs and Partnership Development Officer, concluded the day by enlightening the student leaders on how they can let their team shine. 

On the 2nd day of the Alab ng Husay, participants were grouped into 24 teams, each tasked with conceptualizing and developing a project that may help their community and their fellow students. The diverse projects ranged from community engagement initiatives to technological solutions. Following intense collaboration and brainstorming, the students presented their projects to a panel of experts and their peers. Everyone had put their hearts and minds together, but only three outstanding projects emerged victorious.
