Tacloban LGU's employment facilitation program benefits 100 vulnerable youth

TACLOBAN CITY – Around 100 vulnerable youths in Tacloban City have signed up for the 15th batch of the JobStart Program, a full employment facilitation program run by the Department of Labor and Employment and the Tacloban City local government unit (LGU).

According to Katherine P. Singson, Development Management Officer at the Public Employment Service Office (PESO), the group began their life skills training in August as part of the three phases that they will go through over the course of the 6-month program. The other two phases, which will last until January 2023, are technical skill training and internships.

The 'jobstarters' will receive training and internships at eight partner establishments: Jollibee, Greenwich, TopCars, Chowking, Mang Inasal, Dunkin' Donuts, and Youth Plus Medical Group, Inc.

Beneficiaries received a daily allowance during the life skills program, as reported by the city information office. They will also receive stipends during the three months of technical training and pay during the three months of internship with a partner establishment.

Given the current economic situation, the LGU sees the program as a good opportunity to reduce the unemployment of out-of-school youths and recent graduates while also providing them with the soft and hard skills required to be employable.

Only 13 local government units (LGUs) nationwide, including Tacloban City, are implementing the employment facilitation program. (Source: TCIO)
