This tailored approach allows students to choose an internship that aligns with their interests and career aspirations. 

During the two-week internship, they will work with professionals in their chosen industry, gaining exposure to real-world scenarios, and applying their skills and knowledge in a practical setting. This internship experience will provide students with a competitive edge in their future career pursuits and help them to achieve their goals.

Innovation/entrepreneurship

Youths today lack innovation, and schools do not teach innovation in classrooms. By exposing students to various technologies, and engaging them in a variety of individual and team projects, they learn to think outside the box with creativity and ingenuity.

Design Thinking

Teamwork is crucial in many settings but is oftentimes a hard skill to learn. It requires collaborative effort to achieve a common goal and using each other’s strengths to get there. Everyone is unique: some people are shy, some people are loud; some people are mathematical and some are artistic. Teamwork is about utilizing that uniqueness to work together and build something great.

Public speaking

Public speaking is the process of communicating information to a large number of people. It is one of the most important and most dreaded forms of communication. However, mastering this essential skill can help learners to gain self-confidence and convey their thoughts effectively.
