“The Graduate Explorer: Unlocking the Least Opportunities for Success” Workshop

 

 

Career guidance and counselling for fresh graduates/national service personnel in Ghana. The goal of the programme was to mentor young people to develop the awareness and capacities to chart their career paths, identify and overcome the despairs of false information and to do it right if they need to travel abroad.

Reason being; The period of graduation from a tertiary institution, the commencement and completion of national service mark an important transition into the ‘real world’ and candidates are at that state often uncertain about their future and vulnerable to falling prey to false claims of greener pastures through various channels. The situation has worsened. The graduates find no jobs or seem hopeless and frustrated about their future. In consequence, they are more likely to:

 Become victims of illegal migration through false migration information preached by fraudsters, among others via social media, the traditional media, and various platforms

 Become ‘tools’ or channels for promoting violence in any form that threaten peaceful coexistence among people

 Untap their potentials for the greater good

Unfortunately, beyond the passing of examinations, the school system fails to provide the necessary training/guidance  to students about their future career options and how to excel in the contemporary world.

And to take SMART Decision concerning migration, while discouranging the irregular migration option. From the #defyhatenow’ field-guide topic (migration Decision) the participants were openly interactive with answers to question as most of them have some experiences about dangers/risks involved from narratives.
