CONCEPCION, Tarlac (Feb. 13, 2024) — The Local Government Unit of Concepcion, Tarlac, has emerged as a shining example of youth development for its continuing commitment to honing the future generation.
Through an accurate On-the-Job Training (OJT) and immersion program, the municipality is actively engaging 295 senior high school students in work immersion and is preparing to deploy 45 college students for OJT. These participants, from various fields of study, are obtaining essential practical experience in the various LGU departments. Additionally, it is worth noting that some immersion programs have yet to commence as other schools are still preparing to send their students.
This strategic project goes beyond skill development as it acts as an amplifier for community engagement, instilling a feeling of duty and ownership in the students. By immersing themselves in real-world circumstances and initiatives, these young people not only improve their practical abilities but also gain a better awareness of civic duty and public service.
The municipality’s proactive approach to youth empowerment reflects a broader commitment to building a dynamic and inclusive community. Through initiatives like the OJT and immersion programs, Concepcion, Tarlac, is investing in the future, ensuring that its youth are well-equipped to navigate the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
