Through the Public Employment Service Office (PESO) and in partnership with the Department of Labor and Employment Region X (DOLE10), the Provincial Government of Lanao del Norte conducted a SPES Program and Career Guidance seminar held at the Provincial Multi-Purpose Hall, Pigcarangan, Tubod.
 
The Special Program for Employment of Students (SPES) is DOLE’s youth employment-bridging program 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 are able to pursue their education.
 
Eighty-three (83) student beneficiaries in the province will benefit from this program, and the grantees will be assigned to various provincial and national government offices for 20 days.
 
According to the PESO Manager, Ms. Evelyn A. Lopez, the deployment of the beneficiaries to their respective work assignments will be announced soon.
 
Sittie Aminah Quibranza Dimaporo, the Provincial Administrator, was also present during the event to express her heartfelt support to the students and wish them the best of luck.
 
“The experience that you will gain while working in your respective office assignments will be vital as you enter the world of work, and this new learning opportunity will be a great advantage for you,” Ms. Aminah said.
 
Governor Imelda ‘Angging’ Quibranza-Dimaporo appreciates the collaborative efforts of the DOLE and PESO in delivering service to the people and taking the initiative in helping the constituents of Lanao del Norte, especially the students who are in dire need of support, pandemic or no pandemic.
