Chomutov: Career guidance
We provide our career guidance service to young people between 15 and 26 years of age who are looking for support during their studies. Our aim is to encourage successful completion of secondary school studies, which gives young people a chance to be successful in the labour market. Our career advisor dedicates time to youths both individually (during consultations) and in groups (by organizing excursions, trips, weekend stays and other free-time activities).
For some families that we work with, education is often financially challenging. If a student fulfils our conditions (good grades + attendance), he may be awarded a retro-scholarship. It is a financial reward which is paid out after every year end school report and should cover school materials, transportation fees, lunches etc. We also organize workshops for 8th and 9th year students. Amongst our most popular workshops is "Shitcredit", which focuses on debt advice, and "Who am I and what will I become".
Capacity: 10 – 15 people
Age: 15 – 26 years of age
A career advisor concentrates on motivating young people to pursue and continue in their education and ultimately to be successful in the labour market. The advisor works with each client individually, organises themed workshops at secondary and primary schools, tries to combine career guidance with free-time activities, coordinates the retro-scholarships and provides basic advice with choosing a school and other options in education.
