A group of landladies and landlords organized a Boarding House Association to help scholars stay in Canlubang, Calamba City while completing the 6-month basic training at Dualtech. Over the years, more than 2,000 trainees took their temporary shelter in nearby villages. And about 400 scholars from Bicol, Ilocos Region, Palawan, Leyte, MIMAROPA, Cebu, and Bohol are now staying in the boarding houses. These provinces are places where Dualtech's help to young people is appreciated. For the start of training, boarding houses are needed to accommodate these scholars.
“. . . the faithful of the Work involved in personal undertakings of Opus Dei should live in unity with each other and to live it with humility.”
On April 14, 2016, the Vicar General of Opus Dei, Msgr. Mariano Fazio, visited Dualtech to give two separate get-togethers: one with the faithful of the Prelature and some staff of Dualtech and the other one with the members of the Priestly Society of the Holy Cross in the Southern Tagalog Region. Highlights of the get-together were the latest news coming from the Prelate of Opus Dei, Bishop Javier Echevarria. His message was that the faithful of the Work involved in personal undertakings of Opus Dei should live in unity with each other and to live with humility and charity.

Educating the poor can certainly alleviate poverty in the country, especially if it equips them with the know-how and skills needed by companies.
Public high school graduates who cannot go to college because they lack the resources might want to study at Dualtech Training Center. Dualtech offers a six-month course in electromechanics technology to high school graduates and out-of-school youth. After which, they are given an 18-month on-the-job training in companies, during which they already receive an allowance. After the OJT, they are hired.
Edukasyon ang tanging sandata upang malabanan natin ang kahirapan, mga habilin ng isang ina na puno ng pagmamahal at pangarap sa kanyang anak. Ito ang naging baon ko sa pagpasok sa DUALTECH. Malaki ang kaibahan ng Dualtech sa paaralan na pinasukan ko noong highschool, sa Dualtech itinuturo kung paano naisasabuhay ang magagandang katangian o “virtues” at tinutulungan ang mga mag-aaral na magpasya ng angkop na solusyon sa mga suliranin sa buhay man o sa hanap-buhay. -- MARK L.

The first virtue I learned in this school is patience. I increased my perseverance to do something not easy but definitely relevant as part of training. My curiosity increased my enthusiasm in learning academic and technical knowledge. I thank my mentors, learning facilitators, and the management for teaching us values while learning skills both at the same time. The ultimate learning this school can provide is the WORD of GOD. Faith in GOD first, before anything in this world. --- Mr. ALDRIN VILLANUEVA GOMEZ, Class Valedictorian | Awardee, Gold Merit, Outstanding In-School and In-plant Training Performance, and Learning Excellence | Trained and Employed at First Philec
