NYC, Edukasyon.ph ink agreement to raise career awareness among Filipino youth

QUEZON CITY – Sharing the vision of improving the lives of Filipino youth, the National Youth Commission recently signed a memorandum of agreement with Edukasyon.ph to connect more students to education opportunities and promote career awareness through the online portal, www.edukasyon.ph.

NYC Chair Aiza Seguerra and Edukasyon.ph Partnerships Manager Patricia Carolino led the signing at the commission headquarters in the city last November 29. NYC Commissioner-At-Large James Ceasar Ventura and Commissioner Rhea Peñaflor also witnessed the event.

“We strongly believe that this partnership will complement both our vision of a better nation of educated and informed Filipinos. I believe our collaboration will also inspire the youth to contribute to our great cause,” Carolino said.

Through career education and career counseling, both institutions will work on boosting youth programs and project campaigns, such as scholarships, youth exchange programs, and youth volunteer programs. These programs include the Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths (JENESYS), Ship for South East Asian and Japanese Youth Program (SSEAYP) and other projects related to career awareness and readiness.

Last August, Edukasyon.ph received the 2017 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Youth Social Entrepreneurship Award for their efforts in making education accessible to all Filipino students.

“Through an accessible and innovative solution, Edukasyon.ph helps students have an informed choice and find the right school leading to enhanced employability,” Edukasyon.ph CEO and co-founder Henry Motte-Muñoz said.

Edukasyon.ph is a social enterprise in the education technology sector that connects students to education opportunities through an online portal, www.edukasyon.ph, and promotes career awareness among the Filipino youth.
