The Youth Congress on Information Technology (formerly known as the Philippine Youth Congress on Information Technology and commonly known as Y4iT) is an annual information technology event in the Philippines organized by the UP System Information Technology Foundation (UP SITF). Established in 2003, Y4iT primarily targets college students, professionals, educators, IT experts and enthusiasts interested in discussions/networking opportunities, latest IT innovations, exploring how to be competitive in the digital market, and more. Y4iT has inspired thousands of students and educators alike from across the country, encouraging awareness and networking with like-minded IT professionals. Since its inception, Y4iT has gradually grown to become the leading IT congress in the Philippines.
