In the 7th International Assembly of Youth for the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in September, the Supplementary Training to Reinforce Education of the Academically-gifted but Marginalized Students (STREAMS) XU-Pathways to Higher Education was cited as one of the 2017 Outstanding UNESCO Clubs in the country.

STREAMS XU is one of the educational development programs of Xavier Ateneo. The org holds academic sessions for Grade 10 and Grade 11 students from public high schools aimed at enhancing their knowledge on academic subjects to have higher chances of passing senior high school entrance examinations and acquiring scholarship grants and aids. 

Besides the academic sessions, STREAMS looks for scholarships and grants in the region and aims all these efforts to raise the chances of the students getting admitted to Xavier Ateneo or other universities.In the assembly, STREAMS was able to meet with other organizations whose goal is to harness the potentials of students. STREAMS hopes to collaborate with these organizations in the future, especially those based in Region X (Northern Mindanao), to be able to reach as many students as possible.

Conducted by the National Association of UNESCO Clubs in the Philippines (NAUCP) Inc, the assembly centered on building peace through enhancing individual capabilities in fields such as the arts, culture, science and technology, and life-long education.

Over 350 UNESCO clubs and potential UNESCO clubs in the country gathered at the assembly from Sept 1 to 3 in hopes of being an avenue for youth mentoring within the goals of UNESCO and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and empower them in carrying out their efforts in being grassroots change makers.

In 2016, STREAMS XU-Pathways to Higher Education and Xavier University Ateneo Diplomatic Corps (XU-ADC) were among the Outstanding UNESCO Clubs in the country, becoming also the first organizations to receive such recognition in Cagayan de Oro City.∎
