Around 150 of the said SPES beneficiaries started to report for work on April 10 and will end on May 22, 2017 (1st batch) and 50 will work for the period June 13 – July 2, 2017 (2nd batch) according to Provincial Human Resource Management Officer (PHRMO) Aurora Garcia.

“The SPES beneficiaries met all the requirements last March and subsequently passed the interview conducted by the PHRMO before finally accepted to work for the provincial capitol and Municipal LGU’s where they belong”, said Garcia adding that the beneficiaries, after deployment will assist in various office works and can occupy certain vacant slots such as clerical or secretarial jobs.

“In support to the DOLE’s advocacy to help the beneficiaries, the Provincial Government of Cotabato has been enthusiastic in providing opportunities to the youth to work. Learn and earn during their employment period”, Garcia also said.

The student-beneficiaries will receive daily compensation or wage of P260 which will be paid by the provincial government or LGU (60%) and the DOLE (40%) or 60-40 scheme. Apart from salary, they will also have the chance to attend trainings or seminars at the provincial capitol if deemed necessary and join other work related activities within the 30-day period of SPES employment.

During the orientation and contract signing, Reynalin Nicolas, Administrative Officer V-PHRMO explained the stipulations of the agreement between the Provincial Government of Cotabato and the SPES beneficiaries.

She also stressed that for years, the provincial government, under the administration of Gov. Emmylou “Lala” J. Talino-Mendoza and her flagship program “Serbisyong Totoo” had actively partnered with the DOLE in the implementation of the program which resulted to the employment of many students and OSY, thus; helping many families cope up with the expenses during enrolment.

“The provincial leadership has been instrumental in helping out the youth to have a meaningful summer vacation by employing them and imparting to them the value of hard work, perseverance and dedication as well as developing their skills and other potentials”, said Nicolas.

Under Republic Act No. 9547 otherwise known as “An Act to Help Poor but Deserving Students Pursue their Education by Encouraging their Employment During Summer or Christmas Vacations” serves as the mandate for DOLE to engage with LGU’s to make the employment of students or OSY’s possible.

The SPES beneficiaries, as part of the standard requirement are between 16-23 years old and came from various municipalities and showed enthusiasm to become part of government service. Many of them are studying in different colleges in Cotabato Province while some are OSY’s and SPES babies or those students who have been working under SPES for some years now.

For her part, Gov Taliṅo-Mendoza said the youth plays a crucial role in the development of the society and assured that her leadership continues to look into the interest and welfare of the students and OSY’s.

“As one of the leading program for youth, the SPES has proven to help many youth cope up with expenses for their education and at the same time develop them to become good and responsible citizens. (JIMMY STA. CRUZ/Photos by ROVILLE ANN SOTTO-PGO-IDCD/Media Center)
