Effect
Short summary: We aim to educate the youth in order to make them more employable! Long Summary: In our core stands a fundamental belief. By changing education you can impact almost every significant problem of our society, whether that is racism, unemployment, social inclusion or poverty and hunger. This belief drove us to create a platform through which, by changing education, we can tackle the most important social issues, one by one. This is EFFECT. We start by focusing on Youth Unemployment for the first few years of our venture. We have identified two stages, where education is responsible for the massive percentages of Youth Unemployment. Firstly, young High School students are not given the opportunity to practically discover their strengths and passions and connect them with what the world needs to make the right choice. We call this problem lack of Self-Awareness and it causes young people to make the wrong choice of profession thus worsening unemployment. The second stage is in Higher Education, where young graduates are only given bare knowledge instead of the skills they need to enter the market. This is called the “Skills Gap” and it hinders young graduates from starting their career successfully. Our first program is called explore and it develops Self-Aware high school students, helping them understand their strengths, passions and needs of the market to make the right choice. It is unique of its kind as it uses interactive seminars, assessment workshops and engaging presentations to pass the students from all the industries and subjects they are interested in. This way the participants can find out if they are creative, entrepreneurial, analytical thinkers, or they have a talent elsewhere and practically discover if they would enjoy being an engineer, businessman, programmer or artist for their whole lives. One of our most important innovations is having a parallel track for parents, where they can find out how they can support their children’s choices and help them make a choice that makes them happy for the rest of their lives. Our second program is called Success Academy and it develops the skills students of Higher Education need to enter the market and start their careers. To do that we’ve created a 10-week course that develops the skills employers look for but young graduates are missing, the employability skills the participants need to find and get a job and spaces for networking at the end of the program. To develop those skills practically, the participants will be working in teams on a real-life complex project assigned to them by our corporate partners who sponsor the program. At the end of the program, through introductory workshops, assignments, lots of teamwork, change management and simulation the participants will have developed the set of skills they need and they will be offered the opportunity to interview with our corporate partners. Now that they have all they need, their future is in their hands! We believe that with skilled individuals and more young people who answer their calling, the world can be a better place.
