Six Years of Youth Empowerment

The Special Program for Employment of Students is DOLE’s youth employment-bridging program, mandated by the Republic Act No. 7323, s. 1992, which aims to provide temporary employment to poor but deserving students, out-of-school youth, and dependents of displaced or would-be displaced workers during summer and/or Christmas vacation or any time of the year to augment the family’s income to help ensure that beneficiaries can pursue their education.
