YMCA-SPC to train SHS students for work immersion

The Young Men’s Christian Association-San Pablo City, Inc. (YMCA-SPC) has formalized its commitment to the Laguna State Laguna State Polytechnic University (LSPU) to provide work exposure to the senior high school (SHS) students of the LSPU-San Pablo City Campus (LSPU-SPCC). 

Kristy D. Sumague, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of YMCA-SPCC, and Engr. Philip M. Valenzuela III, President of YMCA-SPCC, inked the memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the LSPU, represented by Dr. Eden C. Callo, Vice President for Academic Affairs, at the Conference Room, LSPU-SPCC, April 19. 

Vanessa Belen, SHS faculty, explained that the work immersion program is a component of the K-12 curriculum to develop in learners the competencies, work ethics, and values relevant to pursuing further education and joining the world of work. 

As a partner institution for the work immersion program, the YMCA-SPC will provide the learners with 80 hours of immersion opportunities, workplace or hands-on experience, and additional learning resources. 

Serving as witnesses of this momentous milestone from LSPU were Dr. Edilberto Z. Andal, Dean of the College of Teacher Education; John Vincent Aliazas, Chairperson of the SHS Department; and selected SHS faculty members. 

Meanwhile, international delegates of YMCA also took part in the signing ceremony, namely, Trang Troung Hill (YMCA-USA), Claudia J. Soo Hoo (YMCA-Merrimack Valley), Stephanie Daniels (YMCA-Woodson), and Joshua Little (YMCA-Wapakoneta Family).

During the dialogue, Dr. Callo opened the willingness of the University to widen its international network, an area that the YMCA delegates may be of assistance. 

Also delivering their messages for the event were Mr. Aliazas, CEO Sumague, Engr. Valenzuela, and Ms. Troung-Hill.

Ms. Belen served as the lady of the ceremonial signing of agreement.
