Last May 7 to 25, 2018, we wrapped up this year’s School of Life program! We were able to involve several out-of-school youth to take part in this year’s formation program. We are happy to share with you all the photos of this event and the joy that we have all experienced being together!
The School of Life Program is a formation program, both human and spiritual, which helps prepare the beneficiaries of Bukas Palad Foundation of the Philippines, Inc. for studies or employment, and also for the development of responsible social individuals. This program is scheduled quarterly.
The program focuses on the out-of-school youth, parents, and adult members of the community who wish to participate. The objective of the program is to help them see the value of life and to contribute to build a sustainable community.
The beneficiaries of the program are interviewed, assessed and undergo formation on human development integrated with spiritual enrichment. After which, they are exposed to vocational courses and training to improve their current skills to enable them to find better jobs or better means of livelihood.
Through this program, the beneficiaries become responsible members of the community, hopefully, to be able to go against the social ills that break down society, and to live their lives to help them discover their worth as a human being and realize their full potential.
