FNYO launches ‘new look’

After 23 years, the FNYO unveiled a new logo at its annual FNYO Day last December 15.

QUEZON CITY, Dec. 16, 2013—Celebrating the “unity in diversity” of 17 youth organizations, the Federation of National Youth Organizations (FNYO) presented its “new look” at its annual FNYO Day last December 15.

Hosted by Claret School, Quezon City, the event featured the launching of the official FNYO song, a reorganized FNYO handbook, its official website, and a new logo.

Bernadette Felix of Chiro Pilipinas presented the new FNYO handbook, which will be available to the public by March 2014. According to Felix, the handbook aims to introduce FNYO and the different organizations it comprises to more people, as well as to be a guide on the services and programs the federation can offer to young people in the dioceses.

The attendees got to see the spiffy, new website of FNYO, as showcased by one of its webmasters, Frence Boiser of the Student Catholic Action of the Philippines (SCAP).

The interactive website, which contains relevant information about the FNYO and its member-organizations, can now be accessed at https://www.fnyoph.com. Macoy Quinto of CFC-Youth for Christ (CFC-YFC) is the other webmaster of the site.

Shortly after, Chadrix Tañada of the Salesian Youth Movement (SYM) introduced the new FNYO logo, which features the FNYO acronym visible inside a circle, which symbolizes the Host, the Body of Christ, and is intersected by the cross, which represents Jesus Christ. Yellow, the predominant color of the logo, represents the Church and signifies the FNYO’s primary goal of leading young people towards the “Light of the World”, Jesus Christ.

He explained, the logo still contains the elements of the federation’s motto, “Iisa kahit magkakaiba” (unity in diversity), which is symbolized by the four human figures with different colors.

Lea Dasigan of the SYM-FMA composed the FNYO’s first ever official song, titled “We Journey Together as One” with musical arrangements made by Fr. Danny Dadule, SDB. The official animation dance was also introduced.

The 23-year-old umbrella organization is composed of CFC-Singles for Christ (CFC-SFC), CFC-Singles for Family and Life CFC-Youth for Christ (CFC-YFC), CFC-Youth for Family and Life (CFC-YFL), Chiro Pilipinas, Christian Life Communities of the Philippines, Christ Youth in Action (CYA), Columbian Squires, Filipino Youth with a Mission (FYM), Filipino-Chinese Catholic Youth (FCCY), Institucion Teresiana (IT) Youth, Mary Help of Christians Crusade (MHCC), Salesian Youth Movement (SYM) – SDB/FMA, Society of St. Vincent de Paul (SSVP), Student Catholic Action of the Philippines (SCAP), Youth for Mary and Christ, and Franciscan Youth (YouFra).
