JobStart Philippines is a program of the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) preparing young Filipinos for employment. JobStart does this by providing youth with career coaching, life skills and technical trainings, and internships with employers.
Partnering with the private sector, JobStart helps employers meet their manpower needs with well-prepared, talented, and enthusiastic young men and women. The LGU-based Public Employment Service Office (PESO) implements the program.
Republic Act 10869, also known as the “JobStart Philippines Act” was enacted on 29 June 2016 to institutionalize the implementation of the program nationwide.
