SKILL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME FOR THE SCHOLARSHIP STUDENTSBack

The Mentorship Programme was conducted on 25th February 2018 at Avalahalli, where 171 students participated in the programme. The resource persons for the day were Mr. Gurbux, Volunteer - United Way, his wife Ms. Reema and their children, Ms. Simran and Ms. Sonali who are students. The session was held to understand and assess the areas of interest among the students, and then provide training to students in their areas of interests and hobbies. The session also intended to provide career counseling and to develop their skills in non-academic areas such as communication skills, life skills, presentation skills, and also develop good attitude and improve their confidence and self-esteem.

The session was initiated by Mr. Joseph from United Way, who introduced Mr. Gurbux and family, the resource persons for the day. They gave orientation for the day’s session and explained the purpose and need of survey to understand the strength and weakness of the students. The survey forms were distributed among the students after giving instructions, and the students filled the survey forms. Based on the analysis of survey, 4 areas of interest were identified - communication skills, presentation skills, computer skills and sports.

For the purpose of discussions, the students were divided into 4 groups on the basis of their area of interest. During the discussion, Mr. Gurbux spoke about the need and importance of formal communication in organizations and at workplaces. Ms Reema spoke on the importance of computer science and the value it adds to the society, Ms Sonali gave tips and guidance on using PowerPoint presentations and Ms. Simran held discussions with students on their needs related to sports such as mentoring, coaching, training, warm-up and strategizing plans for the game. The students were again divided into groups according to their interest in sports such as Football, Cricket and Badminton teams. The 1st session was concluded with refreshments.

In the following session, the students were divided into groups of 8-12 based on their college and locality. They were then given an assignment to make a 15 minutes presentation on Global warming and to present during the next session. Based on the feedback of the presentations the students were given suggestions to improve.

In the next session, Mr. Jose Paul announced the names of students who were eligible for tuition scholarship and requested them to come on March 7th. The students who were part of the social cause program for planting the saplings were appreciated, and the students were asked to make follow up visits to the locations often. The program concluded with a presentation of Social Cause Program in Government School, Sarjapur by Ms. Manisha, followed by vote of thanks.
