EDUCATION

Education remains as the forerunner among all the programs of the Foundation, starting with the expansion of the Career Awareness and Readiness (CARE) Program to three (3) additional public high schools in the Municipalities of Taal, Lemery and Tuy. Through the modules for career guidance, junior and senior high school students were provided with informed choices in choosing their career path. The Enrique Zobel Technical Center consistently produced competent skilled workers and now gainfully employed in various industrial companies local and abroad. With the remarkable partnership with the Philippines Assist Life Language Development Center, numbers of graduates are now deployed to Japan. ENZOTech as an assessment center continues to gain recognition from various partner schools for its quality assessment services. Ensuring that Calatagan students are at par with technological advancements, the Foundation introduced a new intervention through the #LetsCodeCalatagan. The after school program offered for the students helped them become more innovative thinkers. Equipping teachers with updated teaching strategies, the Foundation organized teacher trainings. The partnership with the Ayala Museum on Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics Seminar taught the local teachers through the webinar with ENZOTech as one of the satellite locations. Teacher trainings served the teachers opportunities for professional and career growth. The educational assistance program has aided grantees the opportunity to finish their college education. With this program, professionals produced include engineers, teachers, nutritionist, seamen, IT specialists and others. Sports development continues to mold young athletes on proper values, discipline and respect among individuals.
