12 May 2022

This article details how USAID has helped more than 1,230 Filipino out-of-school and unemployed youth gain much-needed technical-vocational training in partnership with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA), local government units, and private sector partners.

In General Santos City, 89 USAID-supported youth completed technical-vocational training last month, with almost half immediately securing full-time employment with private sector partners. 

Through its Opportunity 2.0 and YouthWorks PH programs, USAID supported General Santos City youth to complete TESDA courses in housekeeping, electrical installation and maintenance, computer servicing, and cookery.
