Trailblazers (Gap Year)

Young people in Alex, whether they complete their schooling or not, are all limited to the extent to which they are exposed to the world of work. This year-long programme aims to change that through a number of interventions aimed at providing these young people with a better understanding of themselves, opportunities available and equipping them with valuable life skills and volunteering experience:

  1. Personal development training – time management, budgeting, self-awareness
  2. Psychometric assessment and counselling to guide possible job options
  3. Work readiness training – job hunting, CV writing, interviewing skills
  4. Career exposure – presentations, visits to various work environments
  5. Mentoring – 1-on-1 relationship with a professional who can share work and career insights, networks and experience
  6. Volunteering at Rays of Hope to gain some work experience
Ways to partner with us:
  • Volunteer to talk at our monthly information sessions on your career or a work-related skill
  • Mentor a young person (once a month commitment)
  • Host a few young people to visit your workplace and learn about your company
  • Offer job-shadowing for a week or more during the holidays
