This summer, Jollibee is letting kids take on the lead and experience one-of-a-kind fun learning with the Mini Managers Camp, now on its second year.

Exclusive to Jollibee Kids Club members, the six-day camp is designed to build the values of responsibility, creativity, and teamwork in kids ages 4 to 12 years old. Fun activities are set to get these leaders-in-training excited to try on their very own Jollibee store manager’s uniform and busy themselves with making friends, storytelling, arts and crafts, and Jollibee core values exercises.



“Kids hold a lot of potential, and they are at their best when they are having fun. Jollibee’s Mini Managers Camp builds on that and uses enjoyable activities to cultivate among children the values of teamwork, humility, responsibility, and excellence,” said Charisse Sumulong, Jollibee Senior Brand Manager for Channels & Kids Marketing.

For only P600, parents and guardians of Jollibee Kids Club members can enroll their young managers at any participating Jollibee store nationwide. Non-members, on the other hand, can sign up as a Jollibee Kids Club member for just P100 to get a JKC Happy Plus card and be eligible for the Mini Managers Camp.

Jollibee’s Mini Managers’ package includes a set of manager uniform, a camp kit complete with activity materials and a sling eco bag, snacks for the entire duration of the program, and an invitation to the regional culminating activity of the Jollibee Mini Managers Camp.

Asian Buildings Are Going Green



Asia is fast catching up with the latest global trend in building construction, that is, going green. According to the World Green Building Trends 2016 SmartMarket Report by Dodge Data & Analytics, we are likely to see twice as much green buildings globally every three years. 

Thanks to India, China, Korea and Taiwan, Asia is not far behind in the global green building arena. In fact, these countries made it to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design’s (LEED) list of top 10 countries outside of the US that meets green building standards. One of the latest globally recognized green building is Philippine’s very own SM Aura Premier, getting a prestigious LEED® Gold certification from US Green Building Council (USGBC®). 

Take a look at some of Asia’s LEED certified buildings:




SM Aura Premier, Taguig City. SM Aura is the first Philippine mall to be awarded with LEED Gold for passing international standards in indoor air quality, thermal comfort, as well as energy and water efficiency. The mall has its own waste water treatment plant that recycles water for non-potable use, energy efficient LED lighting system, centralized air conditioning system cooled with recycled water, and double low emissivity insulated glass panels. Its Sky Park uses green roof technology. It allows plants to grow by using rainwater or recycled water, while keeping away the heat of the sun from the building.
