by Aiza Caramto

The Department of Labor and Employment-Cordillera has allocated P18.88 million for this year’s Special Program for Employment of Students.

The budget is from the regular fund of the DOLE-CAR, which will be distributed to the different provinces, said Regional Labor and Employment Officer Maria Konika de Leon.

Kalinga will get P3.06M; Abra, P2.96M; Ifugao, P2.91M; Baguio, P2.91M; Benguet, P2.64M; Apayao, P2.5M; and Mountain Province, P1.9M.

De Leon said students aged 15 to 25, enrolled in the current school year, have a passing grade, and their parents’ joint annual income do not exceed P36,000 may apply in the program.

The salary that the students will receive can be used in time for the enrollment of the next school year, which will allow them to finish their studies.

She said the salary of the SPES beneficiary is jointly paid by the local government concerned and DOLE.

Private  employers, national government agencies, and 1st to 5th class cities and provinces, and 1st to 3rd class municipalities will shoulder 60 percent of the prevailing minimum wage while the 40 percent will be paid by the DOLE. Fifth class municipalities will pay 40 percent of the salary while the DOLE will pay the 60 percent. Sixth class municipalities will pay 25 percent of the salary and the remaining 75 percent will be paid by the DOLE.

SPES is an employment bridging program during summer or Christmas vacation that aims to augment the family income of poor but deserving students who want to finish their education.
