Cordillera Administrative Region– The Department of Social Welfare and Development (DSWD) here is encouraging individuals who are 18 to 25 years old to join the agency through its Government Internship Program (GIP).
The Government Internship Program is open to high school graduates, TESDA certificate holders, or Alternative Learning System (ALS) Certificate holders who belong to a family with monthly income not more than the existing poverty threshold that is PhP 8,022.00.
First implemented in the region in 2012, the program continues to provide opportunities for the youth to gain work experience in the government sector and learn life skills in the workplace while earning money to augment their school needs.
“The DSWD-CAR is open to our youth who are interested to join our pursuit towards the development of the region”, DSWD-CAR OIC Regional Director Janet P. Armas said.
The youth interns will have the opportunity to work for 30 days and will be paid PhP 225 per day or 75% of the regional minimum wage.
DSWD-CAR will accommodate eighty (80) youth interns from 15 April to 29 May 2019.
The Government Internship Program (GIP) is an offshoot of Kabataan Program which encourages high school and college students and out-of-school youth (OSYs) to engage in constructive and productive activities for the entire year. Meanwhile, GIP aims to provide employment opportunities for target participants including out-of-school youth (OSY), in-school youth (ISY), college/vocational graduate, and unemployed young professionals for a period of time, usually during school breaks.
Interested individuals may submit their duly filled application form together with their resume, photocopy of birth certificate, diploma or certificates, family income tax return, and medical certificate at DSWD-CAR #40 North Drive, Baguio City or in the nearest DSWD Social Welfare and Development (SWAD) Office in the provinces.# DSWD-CAR, SOCIAL MARKETING UNIT, Nerizza Faye G.
