Nirmaan Vidya HelpLine in partnership with K N Meenakshi, K V Natarajan Trust are going to organize Goal Setting and Career counseling workshops to about 800 students for the first time in TamilNadu.
Goal setting and Career counseling workshop is one of the key projects of Nirmaan Vidya HelpLine program, focusing on providing career guidance to the underprivileged students from Government schools. This is a face to face counseling wherein the trainers directly reach out to the students and inspire them to aspire for greater heights in life there by making them DREAM BIG. A huge spectrum of opportunities is then laid before them to choose. The purpose of conducting goal setting and career counseling workshop is to ensure that each and every child from 10th Class sets himself/herself a goal not out of ignorance or need but out of interest and conscience. Conducted 2,053 workshops, reaching to 1,31,139+ students as on June 2017.
Based on the survey results of many studies, the career workshop model has been designed to address the 3 major challenges observed in career decisions of students:
1. Lack of monetary and family support to pursue the dream career
2. Pursuing careers that the individual is not passionate about
3. Lack of information and guidance to pursue the dream career
The objectives of these workshops are:
1. Goal setting
2. Interest Identification activity
3. Dignity of Labor
4. Exposure to key career opportunities
5. Connecting to the HelpLine
Students to know about their natural personality / interest type which helps in choosing most appropriate career choice.
Students are made to Dream big and set a goal
Students to know more career opportunities which helps in making a conscious career decision
The students are connected to tele-helpline center for life time counseling (Currently not there in Tamil Nadu but shall connect to )
