In a testament to the power of community-driven initiatives and dedication to education, the Rotaract Club of Tuguegarao Citadel proudly announces the return of ‘Project Gabay,’ a free Civil Service Exam review program that has already made a significant impact in its first year and is now set to continue as a flagship annual program.

Tuguegarao City Council, Hon.

‘Project Gabay,’ an initiative spearheaded by the Rotaract Club of Tuguegarao Citadel, offers aspiring civil servants an invaluable opportunity to prepare comprehensively for the Civil Service Examination, a crucial step in their careers. Launched a month before the actual examination, this program aims to provide participants with the knowledge and skills necessary for success.

Over fifty exam-takers registered for the first review session, including private & government employees and fresh graduates from different universities residing in Tuguegarao City and nearby Municipalities. The topic on the first review session was discussed by PMAJ. Arlene M.
