Digital solutions platform Globe has partnered with 15 schools and universities across Visayas and Mindanao to empower the youth through invaluable practical knowledge, opportunities for skills development, and career exploration.
Three of the universities are based in Cebu.
“Globe is dedicated to providing the youth of Visayas and Mindanao with tools and knowledge necessary for their future success. We aim to create a nurturing environment that fosters learning, innovation, and responsible digital citizenship. This effort is a reflection of our commitment to caring for the communities we serve and ensuring that students are equipped to meet the challenges of tomorrow,” said Patrick Gloria, VP for External Affairs at Globe.
The Globe Hashira industry-academe program is structured around three core pillars: Atin ang Opportunity, Atin ang Sustainability, and Atin ang Connectivity. Each pillar is designed to address different aspects of student development.
Atin ang Opportunity provides students with direct exposure to the corporate world across various industries such as engineering and business, allowing them to gain insights from accomplished leaders and apply their knowledge in real-world settings. In addition, the Training Laboratory component allows hands-on learning on the latest telecom technology.
This comprehensive approach ensures that students get both theoretical learning and practical experience, giving them better preparation for their chosen careers.
Atin ang Sustainability, meanwhile, emphasizes Globe’s dedication to creating a sustainable future through environmental conservation, community intervention, education, and skills training. A highlight of this pillar is the Digital Thumbprint Program (DTP), which educates students, teachers, and parents on the impact of online behavior and promotes safe and responsible internet use.
Atin ang Connectivity focuses on enhancing internet access and digital literacy. By improving wired and wireless connectivity in campuses and introducing innovative solutions such as seamless payment through GCash and online consultations via KonsultaMD, Globe is committed to bridging the digital divide and enriching the educational experience of students.
