Inspired by their outstanding community leaders, emphasizing the status of our youth today and the historic EDSA Revolution, this group of youth individuals gathered in the campaign for Mayor Oscar S. Rodriguez of City of San Fernando, Pampanga in 2004, decided to form a youth organization called Kayanakan for Good Governance (KGG). KGG came into existence with its membership being nurtured of both the present and the future, with knowledge about values, opportunities, freedom, and how to become a good leader in their own way. With active membership steady at around 300 on the average,the organization remains open for those who wants to join. When other youth organizations from towns like Sasmuan, Mexico, and Angeles started affiliating with KGG, the group decided to categorize the youth by their local goverment units (LGU) such as . the San Fernando (Kayanakang Fernandino Club – KFC), with plans to to do the same for the other towns. The KGG has already engaged in several voluntary activities like community service/cleaning, tree planting, rescue missions, etc. With the help of the Local Government, KGG completed projects like the Mural Painting on Pampanga High School, The KFC Park in San Fernando River, etc. “Without those who inspired us, there would be no Kayanakan KGG today,” said incumbvent Chairman Alfredson Ramos.
