With their new skills as world class welders, these former disadvantaged youths now have a chance as Caltex TOOLS graduates to join major companies both here and abroad.

Caltex, through its official marketer Chevron Philippines Inc., is known for supporting various programs geared towards educating some of our underprivileged yet deserving youths. Programs such as Fuel Your School being one fne example.
For those who didn’t know, Caltex also has a program known as Training in Occupational Opportunities for Life Skills or TOOLS. This one educates youths and teaches them skills such as Shielded Metal Arc Welding, Scaffolding, and other livelihood skills. A joint project with the American Chamber Foundation and Hinch Technologies, the program trains disadvantaged youths who dabble in part-time, low pay jobs or are unemployable due to lack of proper skills.
Apart from skills training, TOOLS also teaches values formation and financial management. It likewise does job matching to make sure that the students get the job that matches their skill level. One such example is Jake Ramirez, son of a fisherman, who used to work odd jubs just to make ends meet. Thanks to the TOOLS program, he now has the chance to be employed by reputable companies.
The TOOLS program is just another way Caltex helps pave the way for a brighter future for our country.
