The event is the latest in a series of activities ETASHA undertakes with the objectives of spreading awareness about Vocational Training and career opportunities in the Organized Sector and of influencing members of target communities to think long term and plan for pursuit of careers.
We are organizing a “Career Development Mela” on February 22, 2015 near our Career Development Centre at Madanpur Khadar.
The Mela which is scheduled between 10 am to 4 pm will feature a number of stalls with various interactive community-based activities. These activities will include opening email accounts and creating CVs; Walk-in-interviews, career guidance, registration for ETASHA’s vocational training programs ; quiz competition for school children; poster-making competition; registration for Spoken English and basic Computer classes for mothers and fathers; registration for self-defence course for girls and women in the community, and information regarding open school and correspondence courses, information desks with information and application forms for Aadhar Card, PAN Card, Voter ID, Government Schemes and Bank Account; along with nukkad natak and dance performances.
In addition to this, women from the community have also been invited to set up stalls in the mela to sell their home-cooked food to visitors.
With this initiative, we hope to build a deeper connection with the communities we work in, and meaningfully serve not just the youth from these communities, but their parents, neighbours and the whole community at large.
Join us at the mela!
