THE Iloilo City government and the Ayala Foundation Inc. have partnered to train teachers, school heads and youth leaders in the city.
One of the programs signed last week will train youth leaders including Sangguniang Kabataan officers on entrepreneurship for a year. Another will train teachers under a three-year mentorship program.
Both are under a public-private partnership agreement and will start next year.
The youths will be trained on leadership, project management, and entrepreneurial skills, Ayala Foundation lawyer Joanna Maria O. Duarte said.
The teachers will be trained to become better educators so they can inspire students and help them become more attentive in class, she said. — Emme Rose S. Santiagudo
