ACE Scholarship Program
Most Filipinos believe that tertiary education is a golden ticket to a good job and a brighter future. But for a lot of youth, especially those belonging to low-income families, gaining employment could still be a distant dream.
The ACE Scholarship Program helps close this gap by putting a premium on the youth’s employability. ACE stands for “Improving Access, Curiculum, and Employability.”
Since 2005, Jollibee Group Foundation has partnered with different schools to provide technical vocation and college scholarships to underprivileged but deserving youth. In addition to financial support, scholars acquire the necessary skills that will prepare them for the workplace through internships with the company’s service providers and stores. Scholars also undergo life skills training to further sharpen their abilities to match what employers seeks among graduates.
