Da mihi animas cetera tolle

St. John Bosco was born on August 16, 1815 in a small town not too far from Turin, Italy. He was barely nine years old when he had a dream, which called hm to dedicate himself to the education of young people. Becoming a priest in 1841 he chose "Da mihi animas cetera tolle" ("Give me souls, take all the rest") as his life's programme. Guided by the vision he had in his childhood days, he began his apostolate among poor young people with the founding of the Oratory, which he placed under the patronage of St. Francis of Sales. The basic principle of his system is his deep understanding for underprivileged young people. His educational philosophy can be summed up in three words: REASON, RELIGION, and LOVING KINDNESS. Thus, he has been known as the Father and Teacher of Youth. He died on January 31, 1888, and was declared as a saint on April 1, 1934

According to the Philippine Statistics Office, the unemployment rate as of July 2016 is 5.4% and 48.2% falls between 15-24 years old while 28.1% are high school graduates (Source: PSA; july 2016, Labor Force Survey). POVERTY is the main reason for dropping out of school. Proverty levels are strongly linked to education attainment and access to quality education is identified as a key pathway out of poverty, according to a study from the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Our goal is to educate and provide technical skills training to poor and underprevileged youths so thehy can have a fighting chance in life. In addition, we equip them with life skills so that they can help themselves, their family and their community.
