I invite you to join me in this campaign and help raise awareness about the importance of career readiness from an early age. I live and work in Kenya and I started this company since last year ( October, 2018) that focuses on helping young people in high school to have access to good, reliable and professional information that will help them make good career decisions in the future.
The business focuses on skilling young people aged 12 and above on career , job, work and college readiness. This is a social enterprise that helps young people have clarity as they are navigating future paths and career choices.
What would you do with good career advice today? It is important to help young people aspire for their future and to expand the horizon of their knowledge on the world of work.
The aim of the company is to improve the quality of conversations that take place between parents and their children as they are deciding what next steps they need to take for the young person. We come from the perspective that such decisions require guided, committed, professional and objective advise, guidance and information. We also come from the perspective that poor career decisions lead to misaligned placement of the student in college and in the career world. This situation has been a contributor to poverty and joblessness in Kenya and East Africa generally, for the young people.
To reduce the pain of joblessness for the young person, we offer school based good career advice for the student and the parent. This program is non-intrusive, practical and helps the young person to have insights about themselves and the world of work, so that they can start making good choices at a young age.
I want to deliver on a complete program in Kenya based on the recommendations made in the Gatsby's Good Career Advice report. Check out the discussion on this report by Sir John Holman here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ESYxydg7E04
I am seeking funding for this program to:
1. Recruit employees coaches, trainers and support employees
2. Acquire certification and approval for the curriculum
3. Provide access to online learning resources
Please support this course and help us empower the young people for a brighter future tomorrow.
