The GSB Seva Mandal’s NGO was concerned about the lack of guidance and focus on career opportunities that today’s youth had.
What did we do?
We structured a day long career counselling session – Career Avenues ’16 – aimed at helping students take an informed decision while choosing their careers and opening up windows to alternative careers. This was aimed at maximising their potential and performing at their peak potential.
How did we do it?
We featured such eminent speakers as Dr. Satish Pai (career counselling), Mr. Sudhir Pai (hospitality management), Mr. Satish Sirur (radio jockey, image consulting and corporate training), Mr. Ajit Bhat (film making), Mr. Sudhir Pai (hospitality management), Mrs. Veena Adige (mass communication and journalism), Ms. Shraddha Waikar (yoga and wellness), Mr. Sarvottam Rege (undergraduate studies) and Lt. Col.Manohar Karpe (careers in defence).
120 students attended, along with their parents. Feedback fro students and parents alike has strengthened our resolve to work on similar concepts of youth empowerment.
