"Interested students and college and vocational courses graduates who are unemployed may apply for available summer jobs this year," said DSWD Information Officer Jaybee Binghay.
Applicants from Bohol, Cebu, Negros Oriental and Siquijor, aged 18 to 30 years old, can submit their application letter and resume with photocopy of their birth certificates to the DSWD, Field Office-7 in Cebu City.
The workers will receive a minimum regional wage rate per day for 52 days.
Qualified applicants will be assigned in the DSWD Field Office, centers and institutions, and communities covered by this welfare agency all over the region.
The applicants will not only perform office works but also assist in the implementation of the numerous programs and projects of the agency.
Binghay said some of them will be assigned to do direct service through field work in communities where the projects are being implemented in partnership with the local government units.
This expanded GIP is part of the Aquino Administration’s efforts to strengthen youth participation in nation building, expose them to government service, train them on life skills and contribute to their economic well-being. (www.ugnayan.com)
