More than two thousand senior high school students participated in the recently conducted Career Clinic at the SMX, Mall of Asia in Pasay, and the Taguig Education Fair at the Lakeshore Hall, Taguig City. These activities were organized through the partnership of the Aboitiz Foundation and Edukasyon.Ph. The latter event was also held in coordination with the Department of Education’s (DepEd) Taguig-Pateros Division.
The Career Clinic was participated in by over 300 Aboitiz Foundation’s high school scholars in Metro Manila. This highlighted interactive sessions that oriented the Manila scholars and their parents with different tracks and employment opportunities available in today’s Philippine context. Meanwhile the Senior High School (SHS) Fair gathered over 2,000 Grade 12 high school students in Taguig and featured talks from Taguig’s Public Employment Service Office, Every Nation Campus, and the Department of Trade and Industry.
These activities support DepEd’s K to 12 program and aim to provide additional knowledge that will help the students decide on their future career paths.
“The Aboitiz Foundation commits to continuously find better ways to help Filipino students to either study further, set up their businesses, or be employed. We will also continue to build classrooms, upgrade school facilities, provide scholarships and teacher training, and other efforts that will encourage young Filipinos to become lifelong learners. This is our contribution to advancing business and communities by co-creating safe, empowered, and sustainable communities.”
