DOLE prepares for Kabataan ITO launching in Capiz

by A. Lumaque

Roxas City (22 October) -- Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) - Provincial Office will conduct an orientation for the mentors of its another livelihood generation project on October 23 here.

The project dubbed Kabataan ITO (Information Technology Opportunities) is set to be launched in the province in November, said Public Employment Service Office (PESO) - Roxas City Manager Mila Barquin.

It will mobilize IT-literate unemployed or underemployed youth as mentors to some 1,500 out-of-school youths (OSYs), informal sector (IS) workers and other disadvantaged groups in the region through lessons on basic and practical computer operations and to supervise online access to government programs and services.

The mentors or teachers in the project will be youth aged 18-24 who are graduates or graduating students of high school or technical-vocational or college courses and willing to render volunteer community services.

"A modest stipend of P25 per hour will be paid by DOLE for the youth mentors," Barquin noted.

The DOLE in the region has set aside about P1 million for the project designed to teach young Filipinos knowledge and skills in basic information technology without joining the formal education system. (PIA) [top]
