Through the active collaboration and support from the Local Government Unit of Mabini, Youth for Peace Movement (YFPM) Davao de Oro, and other stakeholders, the 71st Infantry (KAIBIGAN) Battalion successfully conducted the program and activities to educate and empower the youth belonging to the Out of School Youth, Indigenous People and students sector to be an active advocate of peace and a catalyst of change in the municipality of Mabini.

"You are the hope of our municipality. Use what you have learned here and apply it to your barangays so that no more youths will get lost," Mayor Reynaldo Dayanghirang said during the closing program.

Officially becoming a member of the YFP), they have crafted an action plan that will serve as their guide in programs and activities in their respective barangays.

Rest assured, the Philippine Army through 71IB will remain steadfast in empowering our youth and take an active role in nation-building.
