Students at YUM VTC: getting ready to work!

YUM is very happy to see the enthusiasm of the students to attend to our VTC program. In this term that will end in mid-December, we have 284 students attending our Computer, English and Sewing classes.

Thanks to the support of GlobalGiving donors, we are able to have 13 classes this term. We want to give a chance to all who apply; and that is why, this term the VTC is even open during weekends.

We see how important this VTC is to them. Students aim to be able to work and the VTC is a way to attain their goal so that they can bring some money to their much needed families.

Besides the regular classes, we have volunteers who time to time visit our VTC and join the lessons, especially the English classes. Students have to demonstrate what they have learnt and become excited when students find out that they are able to speak and joke with them.

“My name is Ulfah. I am student of Basic 1 Sewing Class. This is my first time to learn about sewing. I was afraid at the beginning that I would not be able to get along with the lessons. But my Tutor, Ms. Ila, is very patient; she explains and shows us step by step how to make a cloth properly. Now I feel more confident and I hope when I finish the course to be able to start doing some clothes and get some money to help my parents.”

Thank you GlobalGiving donors for supporting this program aimed to give a chance to hundreds of young people to attain skills to improve their quality of live.

My Second Semester of College Life

Dear Global Giving Donor,

I hope these lines find you well.  

I wish to give you an update of my studies. In August I finished my first semester and I was very happy to receive my grades. My GPA was 3.6 (4).   

I was informed that on the Bonus Day, October 16th, I received new donations for which I would like to express my deepest gratitude for all of you. Thanks to your continuous support, I am able to keep going to the university.

Now, in this second semester, studying materials and assignments are getting more often and deeper. I learn more specific issues, like: Micro Economy, Economic Theory, Basic Accounting and Computer Application. I certainly need more books and journals to support my study. Therefore, some of the donations received I am going to use it to buy books and other materials which are not available in the Library or in the internet.

Time flies so fast, by the end of this month I will have my mid-term test. Up to now, I have been able to manage my time between work/family and my studies, even though, during these coming weeks I will give more of my personal time to study before the mid-term test.

Once again, thank you very much for your support. I promise I will do my best because I greatly value your support. I am aware that without you, dear donors, I will not be able to come so far. Thank you!

Best regards,

 

Paridi

“This class has broaden my horizon and upgrade my sewing skills. My tutor is very patient with all students and I am very happy to see how much I am learning.

Workshops

The highlight activity during this term has been our Workshops directed to our VTC students and some outside participants in how to prepare them in getting a job. “How to make an atractive Application Letter and CV” and the “Importance of the Interview” were the themes chosen. Indeed, those fit the need of our participants who deseperately look for jobs in the area, site of many 2 or 3 starts hotels receiving influx of visitors coming from the nearby capital, Jakarta, during weekends.

That was the reason to choose Speakers from the Hostelry field. The first workshop was delivered by the Room Manager of Hotel Cianjur, and the second by the Operational Manager of Hotel Puncak Institute. YUM was happy to see how our Aula was fully attended.

After the sessions, we were happy when participants expressed their gratitude to YUM for the chance given to them in knowing about what Employer expects when receiving a Job Application Letter and the important of them to show self-confidence in the interview.

Hope our workshops has been useful for some of our participants to find a job and able to improve their quality of life.

Thank you GlobalGiving Donors for imparting to hundreds of young people skills. Many others are waiting their chance, through the YUM VTC project, to improve their quality of live and YUM rely on your valuable and continouos support for them to attain it. Thank you.
