JobStart Philippines is a program that aims to shorten the youth’s school to work transition by enhancing the knowledge and skills acquired in formal education or technical training by jobseekers in order for them to become more responsive to the demands of the labor market. (RA 10869, the JobStart Law). A crucial component of the JobStart Program is the Life Skills Training (LST). It is the first step in the program that consists of a ten (10)-day training designed to holistically develop the behavior, attitude, and values of JobStart trainees, which as a result will enable them to plan better their career path and deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life and work. (RA 10869, the JobStart Law).
I took the training to be a JobStart Life Skills Trainer in January 2016.
