On the 6th of September 2017, Career Disha Nepal conducted ‘My Future Pro’ workshop to young students of grade 9 and 10, residing at Forum for the Welfare Himalayan Children organization, Bungmati. This workshop session was one out of 24 sessions of full year career centric activities program which started from 17th of June 2017.
The exercise included in this workshop called ‘My Future Pro-I’ was designed to help students to identify their three major Interests, to know the steps to develop it, to realize the maximum hours a week they actually spend on each interest, to know ways to build their interest into a career. We have assessed that the students have a set of characteristics that lead their lives and they are most comfortable with. If a similar trend, as well as characteristics, can be found in their future career option the youth would be a) prepared to tackle problems themselves in their own special manner and b) there would be less friction while doing day-to-day tasks.
At the end of this workshop, students are clear about their own interest, the things they really like to do in their leisure time. Students felt pretty amazed by knowing their interest can be turned into a career. Students told us that “this self-reflective exercise realized our personal background profile, the past, present and its link to the future career expectation.”
This interactive group tool workshop was facilitated by CDN Career Counselor Hari Krishna Dahal and CDN Content Writer Shrijana KC.
