Robredo to Launch Apprenticeship Program for Out of School Youth

Up to 400 out of school youth will be provided with free training, materials, and allowances.

For the academic year 2020-2021, around four million students will not be enrolling in school because of financial problems brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic. It comes as many parents have lost their jobs due to company layoffs, making it difficult for them to put food on the table, let alone send their children to school.

This is why Vice President Leni Robredo and the Office of the Vice President (OVP) has partnered with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and McDonald’s, among others, to launch an apprenticeship program for out of school youth. The initiative aims to give jobs to 400 out of school youth aged 18 to 30.

According to Robredo herself, the apprenticeship program will provide the youth with jobs in the information technology (IT) and service crew industry. The beneficiaries will be receiving scholarships in the form of free training and allowances, and all equipment and materials will also be provided. (Read: A Gratitude Prayer for Volunteer Workers)
