More Fernandinos Benefit From SPES Program [ Monday, 12th of October 2015 | 1 year ago ]
SPES is the city’s annual program which gives students the chance to work and earn a minimum wage for 20 days and at the same time immerse them in their respective fields of study.
This is in line with City Mayor Edwin D. Santiago’s agenda on employment and education.
The City of San Fernando has been partnering with the Department of Labor and Employment since the start because 40% of the salary is shouldered by DOLE while 60% is funded by the city government.
According to Mayor EdSa, the SPES is a great training ground for the students in becoming better Fernandinos.
“At an early age, they will be able to understand how to serve other people, hone their talents and skills and learn how to be an instrument of service,” said Mayor EdSa.
“It is much better for the young generation to be engaged in work for they learn how to be responsible citizens and service providers for their fellow Fernandinos.”
The orientation was also attended by Third District Representative Oscar Rodriguez, Vice Mayor Jimmy T. Lazatin, DOLE Region III Technical Support and Service Division II Chief Alex Inza Cruz, Labor Employment Officer II Camille Galura, and Councilors BJ Lagman, Harvey Quiwa and Jacklyn Calimlim.
