The program aims to nurture college students and fresh graduates (not more than two years), thereby bridging the gap between education and career development. It does this by offering on-the-job-training and experience for effective employee development.

A capstone project is required in partial fulfillment of the program, which is geared at providing sustainable and innovative solutions to existing local challenges. Participants are expected to carry out an innovative solution ranging from policies, advocacy or education to products, services and business models that address a particular challenge.
