SEEED JobsForLife begins!

Categories: our work

This exciting project to educate, empower and enable young Malaysians aged 18 to 25 years old to secure their Dream Job or develop their Dream Business started on Saturday 7 February 2015 and will continue for 12 Amazing Dynamic Saturdays!!! SEEED JobsForLife is a fully funded Programme created and led by Dato’ Anusha Santhirasthipam, and managed by Soroptimist International Club of Petaling Jaya. It received a generous Seed Grant from Agensi Inovasi Malaysia (Prime Minister’s Office) and is supported by iM4YOUTH and NCWO (National Council of Women’s Organisations Malaysia).

Dato’ Anusha launched the programme with a powerful and motivational speech and introduced multiple best selling author and personal empowerment expert trainer Shahreen Kamaluddin as the main guest speaker. “Now is all You have Got. Make it Count,” Shahreen said. She gave an inspirational talk and powerful awakening for the young participants.

In the afternoon, UNIDIGEST provided a high energy results oriented session. Goal Setting Exercises after a satisfying lunch is no easy feat. However, the “Dream Board” Project worked like a charm after several creative bonding ice-breaker games and snappy decision making activities.

It was a fantastic first day and launch of this 12 Saturday programme. There was great feedback from the participants and SIPJ received these lovely messages from our speaker and facilitator:

Hi Everyone,

It was a great Saturday morning spent with you and the students. I enjoyed interacting with them. I think you ladies are amazing putting up such a wonderful program which will transform their lives.
Take care,
Hi everyone,

Thanks for a great Saturday, it was wonderful working with all of you and the participants. I hope they’ll be able to apply what they’ve learned in the coming weeks, especially since our MC extraordinaire will be recapping as the weeks progress.
Also a shoutout to Shahreen so setting the participant’s mindset on the right track in her session, which helped the transition into the afternoon activities.
Once again, it was fantastic working with you remarkable ladies, looking forward to future opportunities.
