“We are building the nation one organization at a time.”
Ateneo CODE, formerly Ateneo Student Trainers (STRAINS), envisions a society where youth and youth-oriented organizations are able to flourish and enact positive sustainable change in their communities through the practice of Organization Development (OD).
We believe in the youth and their capability to create ripples of change. Through contextualized engagements, CODE serves to train and develop the youth’s knowledge, skills, and attitudes to unlock their potentials and empower them to effectively function in their organizations with their own visions, goals, and advocacies. Furthermore, CODE recognizes that as part of the youth ourselves, the growth of the youth that we serve is interdependent with the growth of each of our members.
With this purpose, for the past several years, CODE has partnered with local, regional, and national institutions, schools, and organizations, including those within Ateneo to forward the growing cause.

XChange, CODE’s flagship project, is an organization development seminar designed for youth organization leaders. By allowing participants to listen to speakers, interact with members from other organizations, and participate in a wide-range of activities, they are being equipped in creating ways to better improve their organizations.
At the heart of Ateneo CODE’s operations are its engagement services. As consultants, CODErs engage with organizations within Ateneo and beyond in order to co-create solutions to help them and their members flourish. These services are contextualized to the client’s needs and no two engagements are ever alike.
With an emphasis on organizational health, CODErs are exposed to different opportunities to both refine personal skills and develop new insight. Members embody a growth mindset in which planning, evaluation, and action guide effective decision-making. Overall, efforts are directed towards cultivating a culture of growth and learning.
