by Michael Vincent D. Cajulao

ZAMBOANGA CITY, Jan. 24 (PIA) -– With the budget of Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) 9’s Special Program for the Employment Students doubled up to P18 million this year, 10,000 students and out of school youth in region 9 can now avail of the program, DOLE 9 Regional Director Ponciano M. Ligutom announced.

Ligutom said with the budget increase, they are also doubling the number of beneficiaries from 5,000 last year to 10,000 this year.

More important, SPES will now be a whole year program, unlike in the previous years where it’s only offered during summer vacation to help students with their tuition fees and other needs.

Under the program, students will be employed by private partners where 60% of the students’ salaries will be shouldered by the company and 40% by DOLE.

Dir. Ligutom said around 40 private companies are expected to participate in this year’s SPES program which will start on February, including Saturdays and Sundays depending on their school schedules.

DOLE is advising interested applicants to go to their office or any Public Employment Service Office (PESO). Applicants should be at least 15 to 25 years old, either student or out of school.

Out of school applicants should enroll to school if accepted in the program. (JPA/MVC/PIA9-ZBST)
