The Ateneo Overseas Filipinos’ Leadership, Innovation, Financial Literacy and Social Entrepreneurship (ALSE OF-LIFE) Training Program had 5 batches of graduates this October who are now poised to improve their situation in their host country and even in the Philippines.

The OF-LIFE/ALSE is described as an empowerment program targeting overseas Filipinos (OFs), mostly working in ‘3 D’ types of jobs: (difficult, demeaning, de-skilling or dangerous.) The program aims to transform their mindsets particularly for the overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) and their families and provide them with basic skills in Leadership, Social Innovation, Financial Literacy, and Social Entrepreneurship.

Graduates of the ALSE OF-LIFE Training Program which runs for 6 months are recognized as alumni of the Ateneo de Manila University. Over 3,000 Overseas Filipinos are alumni of this program in its decade of existence.

The ALSE OF-LIFE Training Program is provided an academic and institutional home through the Ateneo de Manila University’s Ateneo School of Government (ASoG)’s executive education activities with partners Overseas Filipinos Society for the Promotion of Economic Security (OFSPES), Inc., the Social Enterprise Development Partnerships Inc.
