GIP young workers sought
Councilor Joel Alangsab has requested Rep. Marquez Go to consider the possibility of facilitating the implementation of the Government Internship Program (GIP) in the city.
The GIP is a component of the Kabataan 2000 Project aimed to provide opportunities for young workers to serve the public through projects and services of government agencies and offices.
The Department of Labor and Employment facilitates and supervises the implementation of the GIP and determines the distribution of interns in government agencies.
In a resolution, Alangsab said the GIP improved the beneficiaries’ skills and attitude and equipped them firsthand by engaging them in a real work environment in a government setting while receiving compensations.
He said the services imparted by the GIP beneficiaries generate efficiency on government transactions and processes, thus increasing the organizational productivity and improving overall work performance of the city government. – Jordan G. Habbiling
