Navigating uncertainty after graduating from the University isn’t easy. Well, at least not for most of us. The Skills2Grow Program was designed to make that transition much easier.
It's not a stretch to say that we live in a strange time. With so many unknowns, it's understandable that we feel anxious, even helpless, when it comes to the future. We all feel it. But so often in life, the times when we most want to retreat are the times when we need to be most proactive. There's nothing to be gained by keeping our heads down and waiting. Now is the time to upskill ourselves to navigate the prolonged state of uncertainty we find ourselves in.
If you've been thinking about a portfolio career, career change or starting a business, now's the time to start figuring out what that looks like. That doesn't mean quitting your job tomorrow, or even in 6 months time. It just means you're taking the first steps to test your way forward and empower you in the future. It might feel like the riskier option, but the truth is that pushing through uncertainty is far more empowering than living with the underlying fear that comes from keeping your head down.
So why are we telling you this?
In early 2020, we are kicking off the Skills2Grow program, which is proven to help people take meaningful action towards doing work that matters to them and the world. Not just to find more fulfilling work, but create it too.
The program is filled with talented and ambitious professional graduates who are ready to redefine their careers or start their own businesses. The program has been designed to fit around full-time work, and run from Nairobi, Kenya. We've built it to help the youth to tackle the challenging and uncertain employment world we are facing.
In a world with an uncertain future, the best thing we've learned in more than 3 years of running this program is that by focusing on building new skills, getting yourself out there, and aligning your work with what matters to you and the problems we face in the world, you become much more resilient to change.
The Accelerator is a 6 month, full-time learning-by-doing program to help you kickstart a 21st Century Career by combining content, action, and community. The sessions take place in person, in our office at Hurlingham area, Nairobi, and have been designed to fit around full-time work to minimize the risks associated with starting a business or changing your career.
So if you're ready to stop waiting for what's next, and ready to start building it. You are exactly who we're looking for.
