Junior Achievement Romania, in partnership with Nestlé Romania, is launching a new education project for the professional orientation of young people, in which educational activities such as learning by doing and project based will be carried out, based on dialogue and case studies, webinars of personal development and career guidance and interactions with the company’s volunteers, in virtual job-shadowing activities.
Designed to support young people with the information about the necessary steps to achieve professional success and to facilitate their interaction with an ever-changing labour market, the activities within the project are intended to contribute to the development of students’ knowledge and to the practice of life skills suitable for making informed decisions for the future.
“We are happy to sign the partnership agreement with Junior Achievement Romania and together help 400 high school youth through dedicated activities, webinars and events with Nestlé Romania volunteers. At European level there is already a three-year collaboration between Nestlé, Alliance for Youth, Ernest & Young and Junior Achievement Europe, which resulted in 550 students qualifying internationally for entrepreneurial skills. To once again confirm its promise to support and invest in the younger generation, this year Nestlé has launched a commitment to provide 20,000 new employment opportunities, apprenticeships and traineeships in Europe, the Middle East and North Africa by 2025. Nestlé makes sure that young people are ready for tomorrow, because a greener and better future starts with young people!”, says Loredana Gîlmeanu, SEM HR Business Partner & Country Leader Nestlé Romania.
By participating in the project, students have free access to current educational and economic information and contexts, which contribute to their training as future adults and employees.
They will also be able to participate in an online event – Innovation Day, an interactive workshop that brings together teams of young people who are getting a challenge theme and thus have the opportunity to train their creative thinking to find innovative solutions to improve situations inspired by everyday reality.
