CEBU, Philippines —  Global Shapers Cebu announced the opening of “Cebootcamp 2021,” a flagship project that aims to provide jobs for affected tourism workers.

Cebootcamp is an initiative that helps displaced workers in the hospitality and tourism industry find online freelancing job opportunities.

In a statement, Global Shapers Cebu said that due to COVID-19 many companies started transitioning to a work-from-home setup and became more open to hiring individual contractors or freelancers to sustain operations.

Cebootcamp by Global Shapers Cebu gathers seasoned freelancing experts and reputable business professionals to share over a series of public online webinars, their expertise, and tips on how to thrive in the world of online freelancing, especially during the pandemic.

The webinar sessions is being held starting May 8 and May 15, 2021.

Last May 8, 2021 the Cebootcamp covered topics like; Freelancing in 2021 and The Ultimate Freelancing Toolbox.

This coming May 15, 2021, discussions will focus on Freelancing Hacks (You Should Know About); Sustaining Your Freelancing Career; and Resiliency in the COVID-19 Pandemic.

After completing all four Learning and Training sessions, Cebootcamp scholars will be guided through the process of applying and getting hired for an online job by members of the Global Shapers Cebu Hub.

The Global Shapers Community Cebu is part of a worldwide network of hubs committed to creating a local positive impact in their cities.

As part of the youth arm of the World Economic Forum, the Global Shapers Community Cebu Hub is composed of young leaders aged 20 to 33 years old with the common desire to help improve the state of the world, focusing on Cebu.

The Cebu hub continues to be guided by its four pillars of engagement: Citizen Engagement, Environmental Conservation, Business Development, and Universal Education (C.E.B.U.).

This year’s Cebootcamp is supported by Augmen Digital, Digistore, The Company, CloudKart, For the Future, Adnamah Homes, Travelbee Management, Children of the Coast Foundation, International Pharmaceuticals Inc., World Dream School, and the Hotel Resort & Restaurant Association of Cebu (HRRAC).
