On June 4–8, 2008, the Romblon Provincial SK Federation visited the Provinces of Batangas and Cavite. The Romblon Provincial SK Fed had a courtesy call with Hon. Juan Miguel Ilano, the Provincial SK President of Cavite, and had the chance to meet their counterparts and to observe SK projects of the province that are applicable to Romblon. This 2008 Lakbay Aral gave new ideas to Romblon's SK Leaders in terms of Youth Development and Empowerment.
Article 209 of the SK Constitution and By- Laws mandated that the Pederasyon ng Sangguniang Kabataan shall conduct the celebration of the Linggo ng Kabataan. On December 15–21, 2008, the Romblon PFSK's celebration of the 2008 Linggo ng Kabataan was to date the first ever celebration of the linggo ng kabataan in the SK history of the province of Romblon. The celebration was participated by the Municipal SK Federation Presidents and their respective Vice Presidents. SK leaders of the province assumed as Provincial Officials, elected and appointed, for one week.
On 7 July 2009, the Provincial Board of Romblon passed an “Ordinance Creating the Romblon Youth Development Council”. The ordinance covers the youth ranging from 15 to 30 years old and was based from Republic Act 8044.
Under the provincial ordinance the council is tasked to “formulate policies and component programs in coordination with the various government agencies having youth related programs, projects and activities”
Last summer, the Committee on Youth and Sports Development chaired by Board Member Mark Philip Tandog with members Board Member Fred Dorado, Board Member Dong-Dong Ylagan, conducted a hearing and dialogue with the Municipal SK presidents from different municipalities held at Municipality of San Jose in connection with the ordinance on Romblon Youth Development Council, the inputs and observations of youth participants from the meeting were also integrated in the final draft of the ordinance. After some amendment, and further consultations with various youth groups by authors BM Dong-Dong Ylagan and BM Mark Philip Tandog the ordinance was finally approved on final reading last 21 July 2009.
At present the provincial government of Romblon is already actively supporting programs for the youth many of which are from its sports development program. Under the leadership of the young Governor Jojo Beltran many youth activities have already been sponsored and supported by the provincial government.
With the passage of the provincial ordinance it is believed that a more comprehensive and integrated approach to all youth programs and activities will be included in the annual development program of the province.
