DBYC SCHOLARS

Don Bosco Technical Institute - Tarlac Inc. is a Catholic school. It believes that man's ultimate goal is his/her eternal salvation. Saint John Bosco, the founding father of the Salesian Congregation, vehemently opined to this community, "we have chosen the best thing in this world: to save souls". The primary concern of every Don Bosco School is bringing souls to God.

This school has been named after St. John Bosco whom the Church had proclaimed Father and Teacher of the Young. He himself said, "1 have promised God that I would spend myself to my last breath for my boys". And this he did. He dedicated his whole life to molding growing boys and young men into Good Christians and Honest Citizens. To continue his work, he founded a religious society of priests and brothers - the Salesians of Don Bosco or the SDB.

Don Bosco Technical Institute Tarlac, Inc. is made up of the Educative Pastoral Community (EPC). Its main components are the Salesians, the lay collaborators (teaching and non-teaching personnel) the parents, the students, the collaborators, and the alumni. It is animated by the Salesians spirit (Family Spirit) or the spirit of Don Bosco. The Salesian Spirit gives to the institution its lifestyle and its ways of doing things that are unique and can only be observed among the Salesian schools. One element is the Family Spirit. It can be seen in the healthy familiarity and confidence that mark the relationship within the EPC. Being an educational institution, DBTI - Tarlac Inc. together with all Salesian schools has a system of education called the Preventive System as embodied in its mission statement. This system rests on the pillars of religion, reason, and loving-kindness.

Guided by the vision-mission statement, goals, objective, and core values this institute is committed to moving forward and continuing to fill the niche of its essential purpose of providing the youth with quality education guided by service or vocation, faith or vision, self-actualization, growth, or fullness of life, and community.

With the development of the community as its vision Don Bosco Technical Institute Tarlac, Inc. through the Don Bosco Youth Center (DBYC) is looking for ways in which it might be able to assist and help develop human resources that would support the community. The institution decided that supporting the education of the poor would be to the benefit of the community in the future. That is why the institution decided to put up a scholarship program, the DBYC scholarship program. The program is designed to support the poor, marginalized but intelligent, and deserving students within the community of Tarlac Province.

The program is intended to support deserving students to be able to receive a basic education. The program is expected to contribute to the development of human resources giving them the opportunity to gain knowledge, and values that they can apply to their lives and mold them to be future leaders. The program comprises giving full or partial scholarships to deserving junior and senior high school students.

The DBYC office is responsible for implementing the program. The office has its own organization. The organization will have its own rules and laws. It will have its set of officers and members.

The organization is in charge of the funds collected and received from the different benefactors. It will regulate the disbursement for easy auditing.

Scholarship grants will be awarded to deserving students. The scholarship grants for the high school will be from grade seven to twelve.


The program aims to:

  1. Provide the youth with quality education guided by service or vocation, faith or vision, self-actualization, growth, or fullness of life, and community.

  2. Give them the opportunity to gain knowledge and values that they can apply to their lives and mold them to be future leaders of their own community so they can impact change and development.
