engagement, STM has called upon youths from the surrounding community to mobilize themselves into a youth association as a forum for creating a voice and aplate form to take concrete action. It is focused on: fostering youth activism and community engagement; empowering youth with practical life skills;empowering young people to unite toward a common good; fostering networking and collaboration among young people; fostering personal development and enhancement of self-image of the youths, among others.
