About Campaignends 31 Dec 2016, 12 AM
What if we opened up the world of work to our youths as a challenge? What if work did not have to be dreary or boring, but became a fun way to learn and grow? What if we could bring out the nurturing kindness at workplaces?
Designed as a mentoring journey culminating in an empowering work-trial experience, Good Work! seeks to redefine the meaning of work, as well as the transformation that partners in the corporate world and the community can achieve together.
The teens are equipped with the skills, habits and relationships for a head-start on a fulfilling career. Key elements of the programme include a 10-week work trial, life skills training, coaching as well as the nurturing support and guidance of life mentors and work mentors.
We believe that every youth has within them a seed of immense possibility and potential. Our hope is that Good Work! be a transformational force for growth, not just in the lives of the youths, but also in creating greater fulfilment at the workplace.
Mentoring. It is the simple idea that dreams come true because of someone who believes in the one who dreams. This one simple idea has seen us walk into residential rehabilitation homes, schools, living rooms and behind prison bars, to touch the lives of those who have become our family. Beautiful People, started in 2006, is a volunteer movement dedicated to building mentoring relationships that support young women and men, exploring the idea of freedom within and without, and helping them realise their dreams. We are a relationship, not a programme. We refuse to be constrained by the boundaries of fixed programme durations. We celebrate the ordinary everyday heroes who are the mentors and mentees, growing together in an extraordinary journey of challenging their own limits. Our philosophy of support translates into a powerful experience for growth and self-discovery through a combination of life-skills training, mentoring, and coaching.
