San Miguel Corporation (SMC) and its various subsidiaries have been known to train different communities to provide residents with better employment opportunities. Now, its San Miguel Yamamura Packaging Corporation sets out to train students from Boystown in Silang, Cavite to help secure their future.
More specifically, the packaging company, together with MESCQ, a training company, will be teaching students of the Sisters of Mary—Adlas School in Silang, how to operate and maintain Computer Numerical Control machines.
These Computer Numerical Control machines are used to manipulate various cutting machinery such as grinders, lathes, routers, and mills using pre-programmed computer software. Once trained through the Technical and Vocational Education and Training course, these students will be able to become machine operators and maintenance technicians for different manufacturing firms such as packaging manufacturers.
The training course will see around 500 students from the said educational institution undergo skills training. These students study and live at Sisters of Mary—Adlas School as they are deserving yet belong to underprivileged families who cannot afford to send them to school.
This way, they not only stay out of trouble but now, they have a better chance to land employment opportunities that can make full use of the new skills they are about to learn. And this is the goal of SMC—to provide a better future for the Filipino.
