Eight students complete DA9- Summer Youth Internship Program (SYIP) or Government Internship Program (GIP) that covered 45 days of office working experience. The students come from different schools in Zamboanga City.
DA Administrative Officer Rowena I. Pajes said the students passed through the process of applying for the SYIP/GIP, took written examination, interview and finally orientation through the Personnel Section. “There were only eight applicants this year and all qualified for the program. In the previous years, we have accommodated 15,” said Pajes.
Pajes added that the SYIP is in line with the DA Department Order No. 1 Series 2016 that aims to initiate the youth to public service; serve as recruitment mechanism for potential public employees and extend possible financial assistance for school enrollment.
