A USAID project implemented by the Education Development Center (EDC), Opportunity 2.0 Program, invites local training service providers to send in applications for “Grants for Work Readiness and Continuing Education Training for Out-of-School Youth.”

Who can apply

Local service providers of Alternative Learning System (ALS) and/or Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) are eligible to apply. These include schools, private firms, faith-based organizations, and NGOs that have proven experience in conducting DepEd ALS, TVET, or other training programs for out-of-school youth or youth in general.

The grant targets organizations located in: Angeles City, Legaspi City, Quezon City, Pasig City, Valenzuela City, Cebu City, Tagbilaran City, Zamboanga City, Isabela City, Iloilo City, Cagayan de Oro City, Davao City, General Santos City, Cotabato City, and Iligan City.


Each grant award will fund programs and activities that target at least 100 out-of-school youth for up to P2 million for a period of 6-12 months. Applicants should be able to begin grant activities for OSYs by November 2022. 

Proposed activities from applicants should integrate EDC’s work and business readiness curriculum into their existing programs and services for the youth. It is expected that proponents also collaborate with local leaders and actors from public, private, and other organizations to adopt best practices and to easily facilitate youth to jobs and track their progress after they complete training.
