This program is a collaboration between SM Foundation and DB1TVET, a network of Don Bosco TVET centers in the Philippines that provide quality vocational education and training to underprivileged youth. The program aims to help the youth achieve their dreams and contribute to the development of the country.
The program covers the tuition fees and other benefits of the trainees for the duration of the TVET courses offered by DB1TVET Network. These courses are accredited by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and are designed to equip the trainees with the competencies and certifications needed for employment or entrepreneurship.
