POPDEV clubs are generally a school-based student organization initiated and formed by POPCOM in partnership with the School Division. It aims to provide the schools with co-curricular activities that generate students’ awareness about population and development issues, concerns and other “nice to know” matters for the students. The City Population Office helps ensure the sustainability of POPDEV Clubs by constantly coaching and monitoring them on their activities.
