THE education system leaves youth ill-equipped to deal with situations beyond the textbook - especially those who enjoy little privilege. Help Medha teach critical life skills to 25 urban poor schoolgoers.
SELF-discovery and an understanding of opportunities in the wider world help shape career dreams. Fund this transformative journey for 30 committed youth at ₹5,000 each to prepare them for successful futures.
ONE of three bootcamps offered at each school, each semester, this is a 40-hour programme of both in-and-out of class modules to build professional communication skills, work and interact as a team, and learn about potential career options and how to pursue them. This helps students have a clear idea of what's expected in interviews and the workplace environment and enter the job market with confidence.
THIS 60-hour programme of in-class modules builds proficiency in the basics of computer operations, file and folder management, Microsoft Office, and internet search. TAB students become highly efficient in the basic computer skills demanded by all industries. Without an active understanding of these skills, entry-level jobs in sectors such as administration, sales, and Human Resources are not accessible to fresh graduates.
LAB encourages students to gain a better understanding of oneself and learn how to interact and deal with the outside world. This 40-hour bootcamp also teaches effective methods of communication. Students participate in reflection activities, workshops that facilitate team building, and art projects that foster self-expression. As IGNOU student Ankita Bisht says: “I was shy and introverted, but Medha's helped me open up a lot.”
I learned how to write a professional resume and Medha’s instructors coached me through mock interviews. Eureka Forbes were not accustomed to hiring young women for their front-line sales jobs. But Medha convinced them to take a chance with me.
The teamwork workshops and public speaking activities were really helpful. My confidence and interpersonal skills greatly improved and the organised industry visits exposed me to careers I never knew existed.
Medha has improved our employee retention rate and prompted us to change our hiring practices, placing more women at entry-level positions.
Our relationship has evolved from hosting 100-hour internships in our hospitality department, to now offering six-month internships in our HR department. We recently placed a Medha alumni in a full-time position at Taj Vivanta.
