The Cebu press holds activities such as reunions, group learning sessions, forums at the Marcelo B. Fernan Cebu Press Center in Barangay Lahug, Cebu City. On March 27, 2000, Cenewof and the Department of Education, Culture and Sports (Decs) signed a memorandum of agreement for the conversion of an idle building into a venue for educational activities for journalists and students of journalism and mass communication.
CENEWOF aims to enhance the standard of journalism, promote professionalism and ensure the welfare of workers in the print media industry.
The Children of Cebu Foundation which runs the Pari-an Drop-in Center in Cebu City provides different kinds of support to the abandoned children seeking shelter. Former Cebu City councilor Margot Osmeña is the brainchild behind the drop-in center and the Cebu City Task Force on Street Children (CCTFSC), which is the foundation’s partner in operating the center.
