The activity was attended by DILG Provincial/City Directors, Provincial Focal Persons, Local Youth Development Officers and representatives from the National Youth Commission and eight out of ten partner State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in Region 6.

The success of the conduct of the SKMT was due to the partnership of DILG, National Youth Commission (NYC), Regional Liga ng mga Barangay sa Pilipinas (LnB), Regional League of the Municipalities of the Philippines (LMP), and City and Provincial Governments through their Local Youth Development Officers (LYDOs).
During the meeting, the Regional Training Team solicited feedbacks and impressions from the different stakeholders on how to improve the process, systems and design of similar undertakings to further optimize the partnership. The feedbacks became inputs to consider in the future engagements with the Local Resource Institutes (LRIs).
Meanwhile, SK Officials who failed to attend the regular and special trainings may join the Training for SK Secretaries and Treasurers, provided that they submit a justification as to why they were unable to undergo the training. The DILG is currently awaiting for the Memorandum Circular from the Central Office as to the schedule of the training. (LGOO II Judy Mae T. Magdato, DILG6)
