Sanayan sa Kakayahang Industriyal (1983-present)
Sanayan sa Kakayahang Industriyal (SKIL) was a fitting response to the widespread unemployment problem amongst productive youth and the growing demand for middle-level craftsmen here and overseas. It benefits deserving out-of-school youths trained in various technical courses such as Welding, Structural Pipefitting; Small Engine, Refrigeration, and Air Conditioning Repair; Automotive Mechanics; Food & Beverage Servicing; and other technical-vocational courses.
SKIL scholars are trained in technical schools accredited by the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority. After completing in-school courses, SKIL scholars render apprenticeship under the supervision of partner enterprises in key industries and are often given opportunities to be hired for regular posts.
Gas Mo, Bukas Ko (2007-present)
Gas Mo, Bukas Ko (GMBK) is a programme collaboration among Pilipinas Shell Petroleum Corporation (PSPC) Retail, Shell Dealers led by the Association of Pilipinas Shell Dealers, Inc. (APSDI), and PSFI. Its main priority is to provide a better future for retail stations’ neighbouring communities through capacity-building programmes; these programmes shall enhance the employable and livelihood skills of the GMBK scholars as well as develop their values and character.
GMBK is a modified SKIL programme. Like SKIL, GMBK hopes to provide opportunities to the youth through technical-vocational scholarships in the hope of enhancing their employability.
Most of the graduates of GMBK have remained with Shell, many of whom are now holding managerial and supervisory positions.
Unlad sa Pasada (2010-present)
Unlad sa Pasada (USP) is another collaboration between PSFI and PSPC Retail. It is a programme designed for loyal members of the Pepeng Pasada Club, PSPC Retail’s loyalty programme for jeepney drivers and other public utility drivers. It hopes to return the support of Shell’s loyal customers by committing to improve the capacities of their dependents through free education in various industrial and entrepreneurial skills.
Driver Reward and Incentive Program (2010-present)
In 2010, PSFI, PSPC Distribution Road Transport Group, and Shell contracted haulers teamed up to provide technical and vocational skills training catering to Class A drivers, dispatchers, safety officers, mechanics, and their dependents.
Class A drivers perform a critical role in transporting Shell fuels across the country. The Driver Reward and Incentive Program (DRIVE) aims to support them in bettering their lives through education and by enhancing their opportunities for sustainable employment.
Shell-PhilDev Scholarship (2013-present)
Created out of the firm desire to support the Filipino youth in pursuing studies in science and engineering, the Shell-PhilDev Scholarship provides opportunities for them to innovate and create technologies, products, and services that can compete in the global markets and stimulate further economic growth for the Philippines.
In partnership with The Philippine S&T Development Foundation-Manila (PhilDev), Shell, through PSFI, has supported scholars since 2013.
