The government yesterday unveiled a youth subsidy program to help children from low-income families make a smooth transition to college or work and help students graduating from high schools get a head start on their careers.

Minister of Education Pan Wen-chung (潘文忠) yesterday unveiled the Youth Employment Pilot Program at a news conference at the Executive Yuan in Taipei.

According to the program, the education ministry and Ministry of Labor would each allocate a monthly subsidy of NT$5,000 (US$157.43) to 5,000 qualifying high-school students graduating next year for up to three years, Pan said.

The subsidies would be deposited to “employment savings accounts” and participants will be able to claim the subsidies after they complete the program, he said.     [FULL  STORY]
