Step for me Project for career orientation

Dear friend,

Thank you for your continued support!

In recent months, online meetings with young people from small remote places have continued. Currently, two 11th graders are undergoing their 6-month Step for Me mentoring program. In an individual work with a mentor, each of the girls works on their own project to build a career portfolio aimed at researching and identifying those qualities, skills, knowledge and pathways that lead to the achievement of the dream profession. As they work on their project, the girls develop valuable skills such as self-confidence, networking, communication with outsiders, setting priorities and building a plan to achieve goals. With the help of their mentor, the girls have the opportunity to meet people from different professions and thus expand their professional orientation.

Along with the individual mentoring couples, 19 students go through the same Step for Me program in a group format. By the end of the school year, each student will be able to complete their project.

Thank you for your help making this possible!

We wish you good health and safety!

Dear friend, 

 

During this school year we managed to include in the program two more groups of students from Targovishte. We currently work regularly with 6 groups of students who organize meetings with volunteers from different professions.

Thanks to online education we were able to organize twice as many meetings and introduce students to 18 volunteers, including - doctor, digital marketing specialist, lawyer, hairdresser, physiotherapist, online game artist, psychologist, animator, manufacturer of organic cosmetics, engineer, accountant , car mechanic, insurer.

Communicating with different role models gives students the opportunity to get more information about unfamiliar professions, to compare their interests and to think about what knowledge and skills they need if they want to dedicate themselves to a particular profession.

During this school year, our program aims to develop the digital skills of the students we work with. We set tasks with which they practice working with various applications and online programs. We involve students in challenges to work with shared documents.

The biggest goal we want to achieve, thanks to your support, is to develop in them the attitude that every challenge and change is an opportunity to learn new things.

 

 Thanks for your support

Mentoring program for digital skills development

Dear friends,

Thank you for your support in these challenging times for all of us.

Thanks to you, during the current school year we will provide an opportunity for students we work with in the virtual classroom to start individual work with their mentor.

Our desires are to create 6 pairs of mentor and mentee. The main directions of work will again be motivation for learning, motivation for work and career orientation. This year, however, we will also focus on developing digital skills. In this way, we want to address the problem of digital inequality, which is very pronounced among young people from underprivileged communities we work with.

In recent weeks we have organized and trained volunteer mentors. Now is the time to encourage students to gather their courage and apply for their mentor in November.

Be safe and healthy
