A fun day with Permata Interact yesterday!
Nation Building School organised a Professional Development Program (PDP) for the Permata Interact mentors. PI is an interactive volunteer program teaching English to underprivileged students using tech and new learning tools. The 32 mentos are primarily from Kolej Universiti Poly-Tech MARA (KUPTM) and IPG students teaching English TESL.
Held in iM4U Sentral on 7 October 2017, our PDP is focused on career development -- helping the mentors find their dream jobs with the right mindset, tools and systems. We divided PDP into 4 modules:
We played games on leadership, understood our highest hopes and darkest fears as well as taught techniques on networking and mastered LinkedIn. All in 4 hours and a half! (I was extremely excited to see the exciting headlines in your LinkedIn accounts!)
I have the utmost respect for these mentors who volunteer to teach English to students every weekend for 6 months at a time. I feel duty-bound to supercharge their career and expose them to leadership opportunities. Nur Hassan, Zahidah Husna Zulkifli, Amiruddin Ismail, Nurzaidah Azharuddin - you inspire me.
My appreciation to Nafis Nazri, NBS Principal and Co-Founder of TalentBase for using your expertise on training and development with the mentors.
Thank you Izzana Salleh and Yana for entrusting us with this program. Here's to a bigger, stronger and more passionate Permata Interact!
