Assessment of Out of School Youth

posted Aug 18, 2014, 1:53 PM by Barangay Tortugas
We are concerned with the growing number of Out of School Youth here in our area. We are now focused in addressing this problem.

We come to PESO and asked them to help us assess the said OSY.  The data PESO had obtained will help us determine which program will best help these youth. They came out with the following:
. All were financially challenged
. Some would like to study but have no financial support
. Some of them would rather work than study but have no skills
. Some would like to take short courses or attend trainings only

The above assessment greatly helped us in coming up with solutions in turning these OSY into productive individuals. The Barangay Council, with the assistance of the City Government would like to see them working just like those who were able to finish their studies. This also helped in determining which skill training will be provided.
