"Integrity without knowledge is weak and useless, and knowledge without integrity
is dangerous and dreadful."
Rasselas, Samuel Johnson (1709 - 1784)
British lexicographer and writer
Everyone agrees that education is the key to success. It is an evident foundation and a huge factor in the development of a strong character of a person. What a person may have become someday lie in the core values that one had learned during the past experiences. Every child sees a figure of authority – a leader wherein one mostly bases what one ought to be in the future. One of the most important values that a leader shall poses, however tough the situation may be is integrity. Integrity, in most cases today had been compromised from issues of corruption.
Integrity education for us youth can help break the cycle of corruption as we are seen as the future leaders of tomorrow. Lifting the value of integrity is an effective tool to foster development and strengthen political governance. Strengthening education on integrity is a brave step to situations demanding transparency and accountability in the public sector.
The Integrity Education Network (IEN) is founded on the belief that universities and professional training institutions are an essential part of national integrity. Let’s open our hearts and hand over this responsibility together with youths who dreams for a strong and transparent government for people who had been dying for change. Let’s work on this now.
Embracing the World with IEN Power
Radiating its goal of building a huge and strong affiliation, the Integrity Education Network (IEN) has its major networks in the Arab World, China, Indonesia and Europe and Central Asia. In Arab world IEN works with eleven partners in Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon and Palestine to build the network and develop curricula and syllabi to be taught in their universities and national training institutes. In Europe and Central Asia, IEN has formal partnerships with over 108 universities in Armenia, Bulgaria, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Mongolia, Poland, Russia, Tajikistan, Turkey and Ukraine. In China, IEN's key partner, Beihang University in Beijing, acts as a Secretariat for the network of 45 universities and research Centers. In Indonesia IEN have formal partnerships with 92 universities. Activities are coordinated by Integrity Action's key partner, Syarif Hidayatullah State Islamic University (UIN) in Jakarta , which serves as Secretariat for the fast-growing network.  [1] 
Its main goals focus on helping identify what their concerns are for themselves and their world and to understand their causes and to seek solutions for them and to inspire leadership among youths. It addresses the issues people face in their community and is based on the lived experience of those participating in the learning.
Education as the Foundation
The world believes that the most powerful people in the world are the ones who have the authority to lead and decide for the welfare of the majority. They are, so as to speak, the political leaders of each country and kingdoms of the world. Many people believed that the many good has been entailed on the hands of these people. Thousands of people rely and look them up especially because these people are facing the tough job of this era’s situation. What have come in today’s world are products of yesterday’s dream, of the decade’s effort of preparing these future leaders. What has become the fruit of this present time was yesterday’s root.
Connecting from today’s dots, this will definitely lead us to where we have gained all the knowledge and skills – education. Education bears and molds everything. With education, comes growth and maturity. One has reached its transcendence upon achieving the satisfaction of his dreams and wants. Education of the mind doesn’t only fill the gaps that it needs; it establishes the foundation of wisdom that a young mind must have in order to face the tough decisions of his life. This mind has the accountability to break the mistakes of the past and eventually create a new path leading to a better change. Yet, apart from the cultivation of the mind, education nourishes the heart and character of a person. Education plays a vital role in shaping the inner core of a person. When education strikes, it balances the mind and the heart, thus upon which the person grows, a firm and intact conscience and integrity is build.
Education, being an instrument alone will not work if there will be no one who will mobilize it. Educators come close in this regard. The propagation of truth comes with the knowledge spoken from the mouth of our educators. From day one to graduation, we are faced with educators on a variety. Some who were pure strict, others with slight tolerance, few who leveled just as peers and others who comes just in a balance of those; and, in whichever years we are into, we meet lessons that are getting tougher and more serious. We’ve been given the experiences from simple assignments, projects and reporting to thesis defense, on the job trainings and duties. All of these were pack in a system that matches our capabilities. We owe so much from the sacrifices of these people. They were indeed the genuine heroes of all time.
In addition, the successes of everything also lie in the perseverance of the young bloods in fulfilling their dreams. Youths are the prime movers and reason why educators would always strive to do their best and nevertheless, devote their lives in the fulfillment of the goals of the youth. Each dream that is built in the heart and pure willingness of a person is driven upon by lot of factors that influences his or her perceptions and beliefs. Thus, in the cultivation of such dream shall be guided by the light of veracity and support system so as not to spoil them.
The unison of the three vital elements; the education itself - such creates the path toward the dream, the educators who light and guides the way and the youth who walks and run through it are indulge in the huge commitment of tomorrow. Bearing with it all the wisdom and skill in decision making, the future holds at its best when the finest youths start to muster what their minds and hearts desires.
Education doesn’t limit the students in the promise of the future. Education itself expounds on broad facts that offers other interests and goals not only for the welfare of the others but as well us for the growth of the self. In the other parts of the world, education would simply mean knowing how to read and write. Others would even say that attending a class under the shade of a tree with someone who stand up there is education.
Here in the Philippines, the former education system is composed of 6 years of elementary education starting at the age of 6 or 7, and 4 years of high school education starting at the age of 12 or 13. In this system, education is not compulsory. However, since June 4, 2012, Department of Education started to implement the new K-12 educational system, which includes the new curricula for all schools. In this system, education is now compulsory. In its coinciding countries in Asia, Philippines have come up of advancing its education system giving emphasis on the primary years of the students.
Integrity in ASEAN Youth Community
The finest structure of leadership begins in the mind that springs a dream directed towards others’ transcendence. According to Abraham Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, once the lower levels of physiologic, security, safety, love are satisfied, that certain person is said to be self actualized; however, it has been noted that in addition to these satisfaction of the self, a person has to radiate - that’s when we call it other’s transcendence.
A firm integrity has to start when a person is still young, when there is proper modeling of his or her parents and significant others that surround, when assertive training in school is reciprocated with positive response, and if the relevance of ethics and morality is imposed on the heart of the person. Most of the time, in the early hood days of the person, when these were just introduced, it is easily absorbed and utilized in the simple means. Yet, as the years progress, there has come times that his or her conscience will be tested and challenged. When the person is in the state of moral dilemma, where some evilness is exercised.
Integrity beyond the reason of Competency and Proficiency
Competency is a set of complete functional and behavioral qualities that when fully realized, can help lead to professional success. When a certain individual is competent, he or she is seen as a direct, truthful individual; presents truthful information in an appropriate and helpful manner; keeps confidences; admits mistakes; doesn't misrepresent himself or herself for personal gain. Proficiency level indicates that on the first level (basic), an individual is seen as trustworthy; widely trusted and seen as a direct. Truthful individual on the higher next (intermediate), known to consistently adhere to ethical principles and expects others to follow suit on advance level and seen as expert if that individual is known to espouse and apply a high set of ethic. [2] 
It is very much important to note that in whichever level a person may be, there is what we call a process that an individual may undergo. This process does not solely depends on the motivation of the people around but more with the inner aspect of the person to cope despite and in spite what the situation asks and demands.
It is a certain innate commitment of oneself to oneself. Integrity has nothing to depend on any other factors and circumstances.
Integrity as Hallmark of Leadership
American writer, Robert Brault said that "You do not wake up one morning a bad person. It happens by a thousand tiny surrenders of self-respect to self-interest". Many of us have to make decisions that define who we are and what we believe in. Most often, the choices we face may seem insignificant especially if we are in the present situation wherein we do not see any other options or any assumption that we may be faced in the future. But this doesn't mean that they're not important to us: even the smallest action can have an impact on our self-respect, our integrity, and ultimately, our reputation. [3] 
In a world where headlines are often dominated by people who make the wrong choices, people who make the right ones can seem to be rare. However, it feels good to live and work with integrity, and when we become known for this highly valued trait, our lives and our careers can flourish. However, are these values and principles being evident in this modern era?
There are a lot of books and self-help articles on a variety that suggest how to make life extraordinary by taking a better step towards a making the best choices in life. Some of which proposes enriching one’s conscience in order to better understand what really makes life worth living. Others advocate simple living that highlights better decision making in life. However, these resources had been overwhelmed by cyber promotions and advertisements on how a certain individual can be able to cope with the demands of the modern times – of achieving the most convenient life compromising what is really important in the life of a person.
Come to think of the students who come to school because of motivations in gaining a degree in order to ascend a better way of living after graduation. Everyone wanted to get ahead others and wanted an instant wished wealth. Rarely, you can find people who come to school because they wanted to acquire higher degree of knowledge, which is wisdom and enrichment of self values. When education shall seem to be the path towards a clearer future, some of its ways distort the minds of the young bloods.
Dr. Jose Rizal, the national hero in the Philippines said that the hope of mother land is in the hands of the youth. Therefore, the youths of today, in order to be functional and efficient leaders of tomorrow shall instill in them the following values and virtues in order to radiate their own self-actualization to the people of the next generation: transparency, accountability, veracity and most especially, integrity.
We can develop and preserve it by making the right choices in life. Integrity is a characteristic that many of us value in ourselves, and it's one we look for consistently in our leaders. But what does it really mean to have integrity?
The Random House Dictionary defines integrity as: adherence to moral and ethical principles; soundness of moral character; honesty; the state of being whole, entire, or undiminished and a sound, unimpaired, or perfect condition. Although the definition is sound, it can be a bit more complex to define integrity in our everyday lives.
You could say that integrity is always doing the right thing, even when no one is looking, and even when the choice isn't easy. Or, you might see integrity as staying true to yourself and your word, even when you're faced with serious consequences for the choices that you're making. But we can just as easily apply this definition to ourselves. When we have integrity, we're whole and in perfect condition, and we're not compromised by awkward "inconsistencies". When we live our lives with integrity, it means that we're always honest, and we let our actions speak for who we are and what we believe in. Integrity is a choice we make, and it's a choice we must keep making, every moment of our lives.
There are several reasons why integrity is so important. First, living a life of integrity means that we never have to spend time or energy questioning ourselves. When we listen to our hearts and do the right thing, life becomes simple. Our lives, and our actions, are open for everyone to see, and we don't have to worry about hiding anything.
When we have integrity, we gain the trust of our leaders, our colleagues and our team. We're dependable, and, when we hold ourselves accountable for our actions, we become role models for others to follow.
All of this, in turn, directly impacts our success in life. People who live and work with integrity are more likely to be considered for promotions. Why? Because integrity is a hallmark of ethical leadership - organizations want leaders that they can trust, and when you demonstrate integrity, you show everyone you can be trusted.
Founding and Strengthening Integrity among Youth
A Japanese Proverb stated that; the reputation of a thousand years may be determined by the conduct of one hour. True enough, our integrity is what determines our reputation, and, just as this proverb states, all it can take is a single bad choice to destroy a lifetime's worth of integrity. Developing and preserving one’s integrity is a process. Courtney (2010) stated ways on how we can develop and levered our dignity more.
An individual shall define his or her values. These are the values that, no matter what the consequence, you're not going to compromise on. Another is through analyzing every choice to make. Often, people cut corners or make bad choices when they think no one is watching. Having integrity means that, no matter what the instances are, you make the right choice - especially when no one is around. We shall bear in mind that honesty and integrity aren't values that shall be lived by when it's convenient; they're values that you should live by all the time. This includes the big choices and the little choices - the choices everyone sees, and the choices that no one sees.
Encourage integrity. People with integrity often have the same characteristics: they're humble, they have a strong sense of self, they have high self-esteem, and they're self-confident. These characteristics are important, because, sometimes, you'll be under intense pressure from others to make the wrong choice. [4] 
At these early hours, we, the youth shall work on building and improving these characteristics within ourselves, so that we can have the strength and courage to do the right thing when the time comes. We can, at these early days work with our self-confidence and self-esteem, and work on developing our character. Spending time getting to know ourselves, and what we believe in helps build a firm character in us. We can, as well, build friendships and work relationships with others who demonstrate integrity, and who will support your decisions.
We shall as well start to learn how to be assertive, so that we can defend an ethical position from an adult point of view, without whining or being aggressive. Avoid white lies. They may seem harmless, but tiny lies are still lies. Always tell the truth. Learning to take responsibility of our actions; if we commit mistakes, own the outcome immediately and do whatever it takes to right the situation.
Keeping a word and not making promises that you know you can't keep. Keep in mind that in times of fear, disaster and chaos, the temptation is even greater to make a wrong choice. We can use these opportunities to demonstrate your true character. Avoid seeming self-satisfied or priggish when you're acting with integrity: stay humble and down-to-earth, don't look for approval, and, where you sensibly can, try to let people save face.
Having integrity means that we live in accordance to our deepest values; one is honest with everyone, and always keeping a word. Integrity is a highly valued trait, especially in leaders. When we live with integrity, we’re more likely to be considered for important promotions and leadership positions.
To develop and protect our integrity, we start by identifying our core values. These are the values that we refuse to compromise on, no matter what. Next, analyze every choice we make to ensure that you're doing the right thing. Then, we shall now develop a culture of integrity around us; work on building your self-confidence and self-esteem; and develop relationships with others who live with integrity.
Saving the World is Daunting; Commencing with Integrity is Easier
I have been stricken by the lines of E.C. La Meaux on his essay; 7 Ways to Make the World a Better Place, upon stating that "the idea of changing the world can be daunting. It is not only easy but understandable to think, I’m only one person; what can I really do? However, if every person thinks that, nothing will get done. But if every person did just one thing to make the world a better place today, billions of acts of kindness, social responsibility and generosity would take place, and wouldn’t that alone change the face of this planet?"
Helen Keller said, "I am only one, but still I am one; I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and just because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do." That is the attitude in which authors Linda Catling and Jeffery Hollender wrote the book How to Make the World a Better Place: 116 Ways You Can Make a Difference.
Our true character is often revealed by fear and greed. In times of fear we often face great difficulty and disaster. Or we might have huge opportunities for financial, career, power, or other big gains. How we deal with both extremes when the stakes are high reveals our true selves. The choices we make during those intense moments of truth expose the depth of our character.
Honesty and integrity are developed from the inside out. Abraham Lincoln explained it well in reflecting on his approach, "I do the best I know how, the very best I can; and I mean to keep on doing it to the end. If the end brings me out all right, what is said against me will not amount to anything. If the end brings me out all wrong, ten angels swearing I was right would make no difference." Ringing true to me means going beyond just what I say or do. It involves listening to what my inner voice tells me about how I feel about what I've said or done.
One way to explore our inner level of true honesty and integrity is look at how much we trust others. Since we see the world as we are any feelings that people are basically dishonest and can't be trusted may be revealing more about me than them. One of the hazards of lying is not just that people wouldn't believe us; it's also that we can't believe anyone else.
The wonderful thing about character and integrity, which are intimately related, is that they're one of the few things in life that no one will ever be able to forcefully take away from you. Your choices are your own. Even if someone can take your life, they can't force you to make a choice that you believe is wrong. [5] 
There are lots of courses of actions that we can discover within ourselves. These actions cannot be done at once, nor should they be. Each of them takes time to fully understand and apply towards your life. Learn about your own virtues and values, and how they correspond to your life and the world around you.
Understand what character and integrity are. The definitions of these words are often stretched or misrepresented. Learn what they truly mean: Character is the sum of qualities show up in a person or group, moral or ethical strength, and the description of a person's attributes, traits and abilities. Character is who you are. It defines you and guides your actions, hopefully in a positive way. Integrity is steadfast adherence to a strict moral or ethical code, being unimpaired, sound, whole and undivided; completeness.
Integrity can be summed up simply as doing the right thing for the right reason even when no one is watching. Each of us has to choose set of rules, morals, or principles that we believe will lead to a happy, satisfying, and righteous life, as well as a better world. There shall also be a change in behavior to align life more closely to what we believe. Be conscious every day of the decisions we make, however big or small, and how close they bring you to being the person we really want to become.
Consult the life and work of Victor Frankl, best summarized by this quotation: "We who lived in concentration camps can remember the men who walked through the huts comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread. They may have been few in number, but they offer sufficient proof that everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances - to choose one's own way."
Our character is unique. It will never match with anybody else. Build it on the basis of our own aptitude and inner light within us. Self assessment, self evaluation, introspection etc work well, but never get disheartened by petty failures and criticism revolving around failures. Stand firm on convictions. Each of us is bound to succeed. Each of us has roles to portray – not only for the fulfillment of our dreams but more with the people that surrounds us. Remember that striving to be perfect and being perfect are two different ideas; the former is integrity, the latter is futility.
Perhaps, apart from choosing a profession that is universally noble, there is still something in us that we would like to initiate change. This change has something to do with making a difference – of saving the world. In our youngest years, we have been charged with the vaguest and most ethically dangerous of responsibilities: save the world. But what does it really mean to save the whole wildly complex, horrifically hypocritical world?
The privileged among us, are told over and over that it is our charge to "save the world," but once in it, we realize that it’s not so simple. The less privileged are gifted their own empty rhetoric -- American Dream ideology that charges them with, perhaps not necessarily saving the whole damn world, but at the very least saving their families, their countries, their honor. We are the most educated, most wanted, most diverse generation in American history, and we are also the most conscious of complexity. [6] 
In Let Your Life Speak, Parker Palmer writes: "Absolutism and relativism have ravaged not only the things of the world but our sense of the knowing self as well. We are whiplashed between an arrogant overestimation of ourselves and a servile underestimation of ourselves, but the outcome is always the same: a distortion of the humble yet exalted reality of the human self, a paradoxical pearl of price." In other words, we know that -- simply by virtue of being born at this time, in this place -- we are privileged, and furthermore, responsible to share that privilege. But we also know that making good on either promise -- saving the world or saving our families -- is not nearly as simply as our kindergarten teachers or our aspirational parents made it sound. [7] 
We know that soup ladling isn’t enough, that Western values are sometimes imposed on other cultures in the guise of good works, that charity often serves to disempower a person in the long run, that too many nonprofits are joyless and ineffective places, that we have so much to give and yet so little. We’ve taken human rights and women’s studies classes where first world arrogance was put in sharp relief to third world ingenuity, which we were gentrifying by our mere existence.
ASEAN Youth Faces One Big Fight against Corruption
Transparency International defined corruption as the abuse of entrusted power for private gain. No country, however democratic, is free from corruption. This social ill touches government officials, politicians, business leaders and journalists alike. It destroys national economies, undermines social stability and erodes public trust.
Corruption, according to OSCE 2013 said that it lowers tax revenue, inflates costs of public services and distorts allocation of resources in the private sector. The negative correlation between good governance and economic development has been identified. Corruption humiliates the ordinary citizen and weakens the state. [8] 
Corruption is here, there, everywhere. People in high political and bureaucratic positions have been systematically looting the country and the people are looking helplessly. The contagious disease of corruption has been eating into the vitals of the nation; the democratic values have been eroded. Corruption is a pest, and affects all those who come in its contact. And today nobody seems immune.
Consequently honesty, morality, values and ethics have become casualties. Perhaps there has never been a corruption free society but the present corruption admits no limits. It’s high time when we the youth play our role in the elimination of corruption in our country. It cannot be dealt unless there is strong desire and will to stem the rot on the part of the leaders and the public in general by us.
The first thing we need to do is we need to be honest with ourselves and try to be loyal to the community we live in. We need to keep our environment clean by not polluting our household, street or city. These are the basic etiquettes to stop corruption in society, as charity begins at home.
We need to observe traffic laws, not to throw garbage around, thus passing on what we practice to others. We can arrange awareness programs like conferences and seminars on streets, in schools and colleges to make people conscious about their acts. We can take help the media and try to explain to our people in bringing contentment in their lives by explaining them our religious values.
And there must be deterrent punishment for people indulging in corrupt practices. We need to convince our Government to increase wages of their employees at stable level and lower their basic commodity bills so that people may avoid getting involved in corrupt acts.
Educators as Multi-faceted Beings
We read about the importance of teachers in education almost every day. We are told about "strong empirical evidence that teachers are the most important school-based determinant of student achievement" again and again. In the work of Stephen Downes, he stated that the role of the teacher is to "model and demonstrate." [9] He tried to capture in this is the idea that students need prototypes on which to model their own work. In order for this to happen, the instructor must be more than just a presenter or lecturer. The instructor, in order to demonstrate practice, is required to take a more or less active role in the disciplinary or professional community itself, demonstrating by this activity successful tactics and techniques within that community, and modeling the approach, language and world view of a successful practitioner.
It becomes quickly apparent that the role of the educator is expanding. Moreover, any of these roles may itself be decomposed into a more fine-grained set of roles. It should be evident that the role of the educator, even if relatively narrowly conceived, is actually a set of very different, yet equally important, tasks.
That's one reason when people identify the role of the teacher as the central factor influencing the success of students. They are the leading factor with regard to the development of the character of an individual. At a major percentage, they influence a huge part of the future’s dreams. The vision of the ASEAN community is central to utilizing education as means in molding the young minds into highly upright individuals in the future upholding a strong sense of character in integrity.
This leap has something to do in combating corruption in the public sector. Youth, together with our educators are key elements in taking a brave step to stop this evil. We are hand in hand towards building an elucidation against it. The outcomes lie in our willingness to participate and collaborate with our fellow youths, who, in the future, are leaders in various walks of life.
The dream of creating strong governments where transparency and accountability are manifested is founded on leaders, subordinates and people who have with them the sense of integrity where the welfare of the others is always given the utmost attention.
Radiating then good governance and leadership with coinciding countries in Southeast Asian nations suggest a unified tie among them – that their values on integrity exude trust in others and they become more open. They share common goals and aspirations for their people. They, at the same time cheers for the successes and lifts others when they are down.
This is but a dream, yet when these challenges are fulfilled and taken with huge courage by the youths of today, this dream becomes a reality.
ASEAN Societies as spring of abiding Integrity
The core of integrity will never work in the effort of a single person or even group of persons. This has to be a unified will in the actions of people. There has to be a connection with cross-discipline integrity from educators and practitioners. There has to be an acknowledgement as well and value of the culturally diverse range of concepts about, and approaches to, integrity and combating corruption act.
Indeed, promoting peace and corruption free world is a tough job for us youth. We cannot make a step and simply dictate people in authority to polish their jobs as leaders. This is a job that has to start within ourselves – that has to start now! If we really wanted to share and spread the dream of our hearts today, we shall embark on a new challenge. We shall invite others to truly grow – take a leap and advance not only in our own desired walk of life but as well as of creating course of solutions that we are actually currently facing in today’s world.
What we are actually losing is the sense of direction. Most of the time, we have been mislead by our present leaders. We can no longer detect their motivations in bringing up the welfare of the majority, which are basically their jobs. Through all of these, we are called to participate in a lot of movements and activities that will pave way in hearing our voices and desires for the world. It may sound odd, yet I believe that the youth can hand over so much responsibility in their shoulders. We are flexible enough in dealing with a lot of issues and circumstances in our lives now. Some may think that there can be nothing that we can do. Others may even say that our ideas our shallow. On the contrary, we are now given the means to fight and respond positively on the issues that the world is confronting us.
Through all of these things, it is very much important that we build a strong sense of ourselves. We must armor ourselves with core values. It is not enough that we have in us the knowledge and skills that we can acquire in and outside school. What counts the most is the attitude that can withstand all the pressures of evilness when the time comes. Integrity, in the strict sense summarizes it all.
Integrity therefore is the winning formula for such a transparent and progressive network that each of us is dreaming about for tomorrow. Why wait when it will transpire if you can already practice it within yourself.
ASEAN dreams big for its allied nations – we are part of it. The actualizations of their dreams lie in our hands. All we need to have is a heart that is deserve, strong mind and heart, and the belief that everything will be of good result as long as you seek for proper guidance and involvement.
