As part of the residents’ rehabilitation, upgrading their education is among the indications that they are on track in achieving their goals while at the Center. It is purposive endeavor for those residents who have been evaluated and qualified to enroll in school through the OHSP so they can achieve their goals and aspirations in life.

The partnership between the DSWD FO 1 – RRCY and DEGMNHS started on 7 May 2018 when both had entered into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) in which the RRCY residents could avail a formal education through the PHSP. This is a move towards the development of a bigger future for the Children-in-Conflict with the Law (CICL). (by: Vincent Paul V. Ruiz, SWO II/Documentation Focal, RRCY)
