Challenge

There are currently over 800 high school students at St. Dominic's and the broader Chishawasha community who lack counselling services that assist them in pursuing global educational and professional opportunities. This is due to the lack of financial resources and skilled counsellors. Consequently, these 16-18 year olds have to make decisions that will impact the rest of their lives without experienced individuals that can provide them with the necessary array of skills to succeed.

Solution

The edu-tech hub project will connect St. Dominic's students to college students and professionals around the world through one-on-one video call mentoring sessions and panel discussions. The students will learn; the end-to-end college application process (i.e. choosing a major, writing a personal statement); how to develop their professional tool-kit (resume building, email etiquette); and interpersonal skills (networking, leadership, personal development and decision-making)

Long-Term Impact

The project will provide 400 young women with access to global mentors, helping them make informed decisions about their future after high school through 1. exposure to university students and admission's officers who will help them understand how to develop a winning college application. 2. exposure to leading practitioners from across 10 career tracks so that they will be better informed on how to set career goals and transition from college to the global job market.
