Magdalena Campus

The CCT TDI Magdalena Campus is a vocational and technical school located in Laguna, The Philippines. Opened in August 2010, it is run in partnership between CCT’s Training and Development Institute and the AMG Skilled Hands Technological College. 
80 male students between the ages of 18 and 25, all sons of CCT community partners (micro-finance clients) and Kaibigan (homeless men and women who are undertaking rehabilitation with CCT), are training to become electricians, carpenters, builders, plumbers, stone masons and welders. Computing and native enterprises such as local embroidery will also be added soon. 
Carpentry, masonry, electrical installation, welding and plumbing courses last three months and construction training one year.
CCT originally sent its students to AMG’s technical school in Bulucan Province, but Magdalena was designed to meet the special needs of the poor and unemployed; many of whom have not finished high school.
The students live in two dormitories and learn their trade in a separate workshop building.
Future buildings planned include a chapel, administration building, further staff accommodation, multi-purpose hall, swimming pool and a soccer field.
