Tesda Courses in Don Bosco (Pasil) Youth Training Center


Don Bosco (Pasil) Youth Training Center is an institution accredited by TESDA that offers Technical and Vocational Education and Training Programs (TVET) under the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

The Don Bosco Youth and Training Center in Pasil, Cebu City, is Don Bosco’s continued presence among the poorest in the Philippines. The Salesians of Don Bosco entered Pasil in 1967. It was then Cebu Boys’ Center under the Ramon Aboitiz Foundation, the Salesians, represented by Fr. Luis Ricciarelli, and the Society of the Divine Word Fathers joined hands and embarked on a project committed to help alleviate the sad plight of Cebu’s wayward youths, thus helping curb the city’s rapidly increasing juvenile delinquency problem. Such help was formally strengthened in 1969 with the opening of the Don Bosco PasilSentro Sa Kabataan‘ or Youth Oratory Center where youngsters had various programs, and where the community residents, in general, could undertake recreational activities in the absence of parks and playgrounds in the district. Their efforts, fueled with the Salesian’s strong desire to help the community, especially the young, extended to the administration of the newly established Church in the area, the Sto. Nino Parish in 1970. This later led to the establishment of the Skills Training Center in the early 1980s that provided vocational skills training to poor but deserving out-of-school youth to keep them off the streets from its evils and ploys.

As of today, more than forty years after its establishment, Don Bosco Pasil continues its mission to serve the whole community especially the youth. It caters to more than 150 skills training students every year and welcomes around 500 young people every evening to enjoy its sports facilities.

As a parish (the parish church of Sto. Nino is about 200 meters away), Don Bosco Pasil ministers to an estimated number of 50,000 parishioners, with its scholarships, feeding program, free clinic and other pastoral ministries.

Hence, as a Youth Center, a Training Center, and a Parish, Don Bosco Pasil strives to offer strong, continuing programs for human development to the people of Pasil, especially the youth.
