Youth Employment Migration (YEM) of DOLE

A total of 120 out-of-school youths (OSYs) in Antique would benefit from the Youth Employment Migration (YEM) program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) here.

The YEM is one of the initiatives identified to achieve the social protection pillar under the Philippine Labor and Employment Plan (LEP).

Labor information officer Amy Judicpa said that recipients, who were identified by the local government units and endorsed to DOLE, are provided with skills training and starter kits.

Three of the four batches have already completed skills trainings while starter kits were already provided to the first batch.

The first batch has 26 recipients; 28 for the second batch; and 30 each for the third and fourth batches.

Judicpa during the roundtable discussion here Monday in line with the 23rd National Statistics Month (NSM) celebration presented their agency's LEP on behalf of assistant regional director Salome Siation.

The LEP that covers the period 2011-2016 is a "tripartite-plus" plan aligned with the Philippine Development Plan that provides the consolidated strategic direction for labor and employment.
