Summer OJT Program
Since school year 2002-2003, ACED has welcomed senior students from the Department of Political Science of the Ateneo De Manila University Loyola Schools to take part in the ACED's programs and projects every Summer.
For five to six weeks or 250 hours, the Ateneo students who choose to fulfill their "On-the-Job Training" requirement through ACED engages in both leadership and assistance tasks. More than just making reports, documentation and coordination with ACED partners, the OJTs are given the opportunity to interact with the schools and communities.
In Summer 2008, four OJTs participated in implementing the following projects that helped promote the improvement of education in public schools through:
- the Social Science Seminar for Public HS Teachers and
Lesson Guides Training for Elementary partner schools;
- Manumbalik MULI Teachers' Renewal Workshop
for Nueva Ecija public schools; and
- Brigada Eskwela in ACED partner schools
