Over 500 student leaders from SAMAHAN Central Board, Campus Club Organizations (CCO), Support Office Student Volunteers, and General Assembly of Class Presidents (GACP) were upskilled and capacitated on responsible social media consumption and usage. In addition, they provided information relating to understanding and evaluating its different aspects.
