16 August 2023 - The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Youth and Sentro Rizal Ambassador, SB19, paid a courtesy call on Consul General Arlene T. Magno at the Philippine Consulate General in Vancouver, while in the Canadian city for a concert. The members of the P-pop boy band were in Vancouver to perform at a concert on 18 August, as part of their “SB19 Pagtatag World Tour.”

Composed of John Paulo B. Nase (Pablo), Josh Cullen A. Santos (Josh), Stellvester Q. Ajero (Stell), Felip Jhon D. Suson (Ken) and Justin T. De Dios (Justin), SB19 was chosen to be the NCCA Youth Ambassadors and face of Sentro Rizal not only because of their growing fanbase and influence in the local and international scenes, but also of their willingness to support the NCCA’s mandate to promote Philippine arts and culture worldwide.
