Stars from All Nations (SFAN) has launched #Readyforwork career coaching program in Accra, Ghana.
The platform with a goal to have an impact on about one million youth by 2020 provides entry-level job seekers and young entrepreneurs with skills for employment and entrepreneurship by improving access to quality tools and connecting them to quality job.
In a news release signed by SFAN’s Founder and President, Tom-Chris Emewulu explained that although there have been tremendous improvements in economic transformation and technology innovation in Africa, the challenge has always been in integrating the youth into the workforce. ”Obviously, there is a big disconnect because, inasmuch as the economy is expanding and domestic demand is increasing, access to gainful employment is not, hence the growing youth unemployment rate in Africa”, he added that this is the problem that ReadyforWork has been launched to solve.
Readyforwork Career Coaching Program is a four-course module that seeks to equip young people with the skills necessary to gain employment and contribute to a highly productive workplace. Group discussions, team conversations, and one-on-one coaching empower participants to take ownership of their career aspirations and grow in confidence that yields success. It is not a seminar nor a conference but a class taught by employers.
Some of the topics that would be covered in the program include:
- Resumes and cover letters, internship, job search and skills
- Interviewing and attire, personal branding, social media and business etiquette
- Communication, storytelling and design thinking
- Career advancement, networking, entrepreneurial mindset and leadership
Stars from All Nations is a high impact social enterprise that bridges the gap between education and work by equipping youths with necessary skills and opportunities via innovative platforms, products, and programs that help them turn their passions into businesses or careers.
Registration is ongoing for the third course taking place at Impact Hub Accra, on Saturday, September 22, 2018. To register or learn more, visit the website or contact SFAN at 0545 93 5695
