To our Awesome Supporters,
We are very pleased to update you of our activities from the past 3 months, particularly, our ongoing workshop in Ubon Ratchathani: "Life Path and Leadership Workshop."
This workshop covers information regarding university, vocational, and other education options after high school, including concrete ways to pursue and succeed in higher education. It presents all relevant information about pursuing further education after high school and what kind of career paths one can embark on after graduating.
Also, the workshop provides information to students who are unable to attend university after high school (due to various socioeconomic and personal reasons). It covers career path options, ways to pursue safe and stable employment, relevant labour laws and other information relevant to developing careers.
After the three training workshops, six students were selected from each of the 5 schools (30 students total) to participate in the intensive training workshop, which teaches the students the skills to share information with fellow students on issues relevant to education and career paths. The students were also trained to serve as mentors to younger students and links between Goodwill and the schools.
Student leaders were selected based on the following criteria: successful completion of all three workshops; stated interest to be leaders (along with stated motivations); high performance during workshop activities; self-discipline, confidence, and knowledge (gauged during workshop activities as well as from teacher recommendations). In addition, we consulted with teachers and school staff during the selection process to find out each candidate’s academic performance and attendance records, as well as any other information that was relevant to their success as student leaders.
As always, we are so grateful for your continued support, and we look forward to sharing more with you in our next Update Report.
From all of us at Goodwill, Thank You!
