ISIC has always been very proud of the international endorsement it receives from UNESCO, which is the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. Now ISIC Indonesia has entered into a cooperative partnership locally with the Indonesian National Committee for UNESCO Youth Desk. Recognizing the importance of youth participation in Indonesia's national development, INCUYD was officially established and launched in 2010 to be mutually beneficial for youth community/youth groups and the INCU. "Young people have as much to say about societal problems and potential remedies as others do" says Leo Mokodompit, INCU Youth Desk Coordinator. He continues... "Indonesia's youth are not only the future but also the present. We believe in our motto to Engage, Ensure, Encourage and Empower Indonesia's youth so they can raise their voice and participate actively in UNESCO's sectors of Education, Science Culture and Communication."
ISIC Indonesia and INCU YD will also work together to promote ISIC's stated goal of offering opportunities for students and youth through education and travel, both locally and internationally. "ISIC Indonesia and INCUYD are perfect partners with a common goal of enriching the lives of students through education and travel along with social and cultural pursuits. I am excited to have INCUYD joining with ISIC Indonesia to promote each others organizations and the ideals we each represent. I look forward to a long and mutually beneficial partnership with INCUYD." Bill Johnson, G.M. ISIC Indonesia.
