Through field trips, the program provides students with first-hand insights into jobs in various fields and offers youth the opportunity to connect with professionals to learn to which extent these jobs match their skills and potential and what to expect from each profession. Field trips include visits to both private and public institutions in Qatar.
Introduction to Universities
Choosing an academic track is the first step in determining a future career path. This is why the Career Academy program seeks to introduce students to Qatar-based universities including Qatar University, Hamad Bin Khalifa University and Education City universities among others. Representatives of these universities will be hosted on the final day of the program to provide students with an overview of the academic programs and admission requirements at these universities, which will help them make informed academic choices and prepare for university life.
In a bid to equip students with essential life skills and help youth plan their academic and career tracks, the program features workshops aimed at honing students’ personalities before enrolling in universities. The workshops touch on number of topics, including “Preparations to study abroad”, “How to write a resume” and “How to introduce yourself to society”, in addition to workshops relating to the practical skills that empower students to become independent.
Recreational and Educational Activities
The program will feature a variety of recreational and educational activities. Participants will attend a series of handicraft workshops that aim to equip students with a wide range of personal and life skills as well as to bolster their self-confidence, communication and public speaking skills, and teamwork among other skills that will come in handy when entering the job market.
