Abstract/Summary

This study aimed to identify and describe the level of participation among university students in faith-based organizations in Metro Manila. It also described the relationship between level of students' mothers' authoritative parenting style, the level of students' mother's parental involvement, and the students' participation in faith-based organizations in Metro Manila. It also examined how their level of participation in faith-based organizations affects their risky behaviors. Quantitative in design and descriptive in purpose, this study used self-administered survey questionnaire to gather data using referral and purposive sampling with the population of one hundred (100) university students from faith-based organizations in Metro Manila.

The average age among the respondents is 19.5 years old. Thirty nine percent are 18 years old. A little more than half of the students were female and a little less than 50% of the students are in their senior year in college. The overall level of university students' mothers' authoritative parenting style is high which suggests that mothers still set rules but still giving their children the degree of freedom. Moreover, the overall level of university students' mothers' parental involvement is moderate in which mothers still do engage in to some extent with their children organizations through participating in child's activities, setting expectations, and establishing communication. It was also shown that students' overall level of participation in faith-based organizations is high. This could be due the fact that many universities and colleges, private at that, are owned by religious orders. Furthermore, the overall level of risky behaviors of university students is low.

This study concluded that parental involvement specifically the parental expectations have significant relationship with the university students' level of participation in faith-based organization. This means that parental expectations could have served as a motivation of the students to engage in faith-based organization especially when mothers are also involved in the organization. Second, it was shown that mothers' level of authoritative parenting do not influence the students' level of participation in faith-based organizations. Lastly, the students' level of participation in faith-based organizations do not necessarily affect their level of risky behaviors.
