Strengthening the ASEAN Education Delivery Systems in Challenging Times

Full Text Sharing
This pandemic again has necessitated the ASEAN Youth Volunteer Programme (AYVP) Secretariat at UKM and the University of the Philippines (UP), in partnership with the ASEAN Secretariat and Ministry Youth and Sports Malaysia to host the E-AYVP Philippines 2021.
COVID-19 has devastated the education sector. School closures have disrupted learning for more than 1.6 billion students around the world. As of January 2021, UNESCO estimates that more than 234 million children and youth remain affected by school closures in 33 countries, equaling more than 13 percent of enrolled learners worldwide. An estimated 11 million girls may never return to schooling. In addition, the effects of the pandemic exacerbated pre-existing education inequality, especially disadvantaging girls, learners with disabilities, people living in extreme poverty, and other marginalized groups.


Hence with the theme of “Strengthening the ASEAN Education Delivery Systems in Challenging Times”, this three-week programme seeks to develop the future leaders of ASEAN, the youths who will take the lead in strengthening the education systems, especially in this new normal, together with the local communities.


The programme will feature various international prominent figures in education, translated into ASEAN-focused virtual webinars and masterclasses. 



The Call for Volunteers has been made on 31 May 2021 via AYVP's official online channels - AYVP Facebook page, Twitter account and AYVP UKM website (
The closing date of application for Volunteers is 26 June 2021, 2359H GMT+8. The selection will be based on individual merits and only shortlisted volunteers will be notified before 11 August 2021.
