Programs are needed that will create bridging social capital for young Filipinos. For example, internships might allow them to experience diverse working environments beyond those that are readily accessible through first generation family and friend networks. But the accessibility of internships needs to be considered. Unpaid internships, which are becoming increasingly common, effectively exclude those who do not have the financial means (or family support) to forego earnings. Filipino youth from low-income families would need access to paid internships in order for a system of this kind to truly increase their social capital and range of options.
