Objective: To enhance the development of basic life skills, personal competence, and career-related skills
This is a training addressing social, psychological, cognitive, and attitudinal factors. The students in high school spend one week in the local office during each of their school holidays (April, August, and late November or early December). The curriculum progresses from basic skills like formal handshakes to interview skills and clearly articulating one’s strengths and goals. The program consists of three major components that teach students:
(1) General self-awareness and Self-management skills,
(2) Social skills, and
(3) Information and skills specifically related to career development.
Skills are taught using training techniques such as instruction, demonstration, feedback, reinforcement, and practice. The training is being led by a hired life coach from Success Signature (Mbugua Mumbi) supported by Ngong Road Children’s Foundation Board and the Kikuyu Rotary Club.
