Thank You for the Funding! Plan Underway

Business Skills Survey in Thai
Business Skills Survey in Thai

Thanks to all your support, we have the finds to get the project underway.  While we are still finalizing the project plan, we expect to have the equipment,  curriculum, teachers, and students in place for a pilot in Q1.

We are starting with surveys of businesses to confirm what skills are lacking in the current youth populace.  The photo of the zigsaw puzzle is the survey format created by our staff. they have started with local businesses and will continue in the city of Chiang Mai.

We have been setting up partnerships with curriculum developers for English, soft skills, and both coding and hospitality specialties.

  1. Soft skills: We will use programs with a proven track record. For example, This is a program for both boys and girls to build self-esteem and set personal goals. This is a program taught by mentors at our site.
  2. English - TEFL-based English program for Thai students to supplement their core studies.
  3. Hospitality – working with the Dusit Hotels University, we have access to online core skills training and English for hospitality.
  4. Coding - Build out the program developed by Steven Devos and supplement with and CodeAcademy.

In addition, we have offers of assistance from volunteers from major tech companies that have experience building vocational training programs for youth.

We are excited about the development of this valuable project and again thank you for being a part of making this happen.
