What is SPES?

The Special Program for Employment of Students (SPES) is a program being mandated by the RepublicAct No. 7323, entitled “An Act to Help Poor But Deserving Students Pursue Their Education By Encouraging Their Employment During Summer and/or Christmas Vacations, Through Incentives Granted to Employers, Allowing Them to Pay Only Sixty centum of Their Salaries or Wages and the Forty Per centum Through Education Vouchers to be paid by the Government, Prohibiting and Penalizing the Filing of Fraudulent or Fictitious Claims, and For Other Purposes”. This has been amended by the Republic Act No. 9547 also known as “an Act Strengthening and Expanding the Coverage of SPES, Amending for the Purpose Provisions of R.A. No. 7323”.

Program Objectives

Aims to provide poor but deserving high school, vocational or college students the opportunity to be employed and compensated during the summer and/or Christmas vacations. Student drop outs who have a good track record, but were forced to stop schooling due to lack of means to enroll in school are also qualified to join the program to encourage them to enroll in the next term. The program also encourages companies and employers to take part in shaping responsible citizens by employing students and compensating them equally as employees.
