DOLE To Hire 3,565 IT Youth Mentors

Date Posted: Oct 12, 2009
The department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) announced that they will hire 3,565 youth mentors for its Kabataan ITo special project starting this October. The project would jumpstart nationwide familiarization and appreciation sessions on information technology for Filipinos in the disadvantaged sectors.

The Kabataan ITo project aims to teach the youth on basic information technology with the help of youth IT mentors.

Labor and Employment Secretary Marianito D. Roque announced this yesterday after he received the reports of the National Reintegration Program for OFWs, the Bureau of Rural Workers and the Bureau of Women and Young Workers -- all DOLE offices -- about their preparation for the launching of the special project in the third week of October.

"Our regional offices have committed to hire 3,565 information technology youth mentors who will conduct familiarization and appreciation sessions until December. At a ratio of one mentor to two students, about 27,240 young people from the disadvantaged and informal sectors will benefit from these sessions," Roque said.

Students under the program will be taught an IT module where lessons in computer hardware familiriarization, computer operation and MS Word processing application will be shared. The IT session will be for 22 hours.

Mentors who will work as “part time” will be paid Php25.00 per monitoring hour.

The DOLE has already identified the venues for the familiarization and appreciation sessions. These will be held in the DOLE regional and field offices, regional offices of the Overseas Workers Welfare Administration, some computer centers, and Public Employment Service Offices, or PESOs which the DOLE and its social partners have earlier furnished with computers.

DOLE regional offices, in cooperation with the PESOs and working youth organizations will recruit the IT mentors who must be results-oriented, computer-adept, and friendly to the disadvantaged youth. They must also be meticulous keeping tab of the progress of the learners, as well as patient in mentoring.

"There is a bright future for the knowledgeable and skilled in information technology, and we would like our disadvantaged young people to have a share of this bright future through Kabataan ITo," Roque said.
