YEEA Employ-ability Program is a free program that delivers a range of key employment skills
Our employability program proactively engage with young people in order to help them to identify the skills needed for the world of work.
It delivers a range of activities and interactive lessons that help our young people to identify the effects of a good communicational work place, it also looks at aspects of non-verbal communication skills and how it can interpret on the organisation. It also, aids our young people to identify the 'softer skills' they require to develop, into helping them on the career path and to support them with overcoming challenges confidently.
The program also covers a number of team building exercises to help the young people gain the necessary and relevant experience for future job roles for which they may apply. The program prepares them for interviews by providing mock interviews for the individual, or group 'mock' interviews.
This is achieved by a number of activities like; “bomb disposal activity”, this is a problem-solving task requires individuals to analyse the problem and resources available before agreeing a plan and ultimately working together to defuse the bomb.
Then we have the “Sheep Dog activity” a leadership activity in which the individuals develop a communication method before individuals attempt to lead their team to the goal.
In addition, the “Blind Shapes Activity” This activity encourages leaders to think about the way they present instructions whilst encouraging listening skills in the group, they will be taking it in turns to be the leader and their job is to guide their blindfolded teammates around a maze.
This is just some of the activities that forms part of this program. If you are interested in getting involved in this program contact us today!
