During the short program conducted inside the facility, TESDA-Caraga Regional Director Tarhata S. Mapandi, CESO III underscored the importance of youth empowerment emphasizing their role in nation-building.

“As such, we at TESDA are here not only to give you with these grocery items but also to encourage each one of you to undergo skills trainings... and we are providing scholarships to those who are interested to learn,” Dir. Mapandi said.
