According to PESO, for this year, there are only 161 slots for summer employment, although they will accept up to 200 registrants for validation and screening. However, applicants to be registered from numbers 162-200 will be considered as waitlisted, the office clarified.
Qualifications for the summer job program are as follows:
• must be 15 to 30 years old

• Enrolled; with outstanding/passing grades
• Combined net income after tax of parents does not exceed the latest annual poverty threshold level for a family of six (6) which is P 149, 874.00

Registration will start at 8:30 A.M at the City Engineer’s Gymnasium. Applicants are advised to bring their own pen, follow strict health protocols, wear proper facemask and practice social distancing.
SPES is a youth employment-bridging program which aims to provide temporary employment to poor but deserving students during summer and/or Christmas vacation or any time of the year to augment the family’s income to help ensure that beneficiaries are able to pursue their education.
