The Department of Social Welfare and Development has opened 1,360 slots for qualified youth interns to give them the opportunity to work at the agency’s central and field offices as part of the Government Internship Program.

The DSWD said applicants must be 18 years old to 25 years old, in senior high school or college, with family income not more than the current poverty threshold at P9,063.75.

A total of 80 slots are available per field office and in the central office.

Under the program, interns will have to render 30 working days of service, which will start on April 15 and end on May 29, 2019.

Interns will be paid 75 percent of the existing wage rate in the region where they are accepted.

Qualified interns will be assigned to different work stations according to their assessed skills.

Tasks include regular office work, such as encoding, report writing, and assisting in the implementation of key programs of the DSWD, like the Supplementary Feeding Program, Social Pension for Indigent Senior Citizens, and Pantawid Pamilyang Pilipino Program.

The GIP is a component of the national government’s Kabataan 2000 PRogram, which was developed to provide opportunities for in-school youth to have hands-on experience working in various government agencies.

Many past interns have expressed gratitude for being part of the GIP, saying the program was a big help to them as they were able to save some money and learn to value the fruits of their hard work at the same time.
