Aumentado-Balite Administration give hope to 612 “SPES babies” “Never give up,” echoed Board Member Nanay Lucille Lagunay who represented Gov. Aris Aumentado during the culmination and payout of Special Program for Employment of Students (SPES) last Saturday, September 10, 2022.

The first batch of the 20-day SPES was composed of 612 students who received 6,564 pesos from the BEPO-PESO. Ms. Maria Vilma Yorong, head of BEPO-PESO, encourages more municipalities to participate in the program to prepare students for the workforce and give their youth a chance to experience earning income through government service.

“If mo-commit ang LGUs og incorporate sa SPES sa ilang lugar, DOLE can definitely help them out in organizing it. Hatagan nato ang youth og chance nga makatilaw sila on what it’s like to experience working”, Yorong said.

The Aumentado-Balite administration always looks after the welfare of Boholano students and their future.
