Saje Miguel Molato

There was a time when being young meant having to wait for one’s turn to lead – times have changed. There is no greater time to be bold; to be daring; to be ambitious – to be young, than now.

Saje is currently pursuing his Juris Doctor Degree in the University of the Philippines College of Law. He is the Founder of Siklab, the Official Delegation Partner of The Youth Assembly in the Philippines; the first in the SEA region. He currently serves as the President of its Board of Directors. To date, Siklab has sent over 180 Filipino youth to major international conferences since it was founded in 2016.

During his undergraduate years, he founded The Model City Council, a social venture he developed which led him to receive his Resolution Fellowship. The venture is dedicated to providing young people the opportunity to launch projects, small-to-medium enterprises, and propose legislative action with the support of their local governments in their communities. To date, it has assisted over 6,000 youth from numerous communities all over the Philippines in determining key societal issues, developing sustainable projects for their communities, and hands-on mentorship to allow them to evolve as young leaders in their communities. He and his team plan on expanding the venture to major cities by the end of 2018.
