Overview

Problems:

According to a statistics by Nhan Viet Management Group over 500 firms, there are 94% of fresh graduates need to be retrained to the specific needs of the enterprises. In there, the re-training contents have 92% on professional skills, 61% on basic soft skills, 53% on communication skills, behaviour culture,..

The issues that students are dealing with today:

- There is no career orientation or future university.
- Choose a school from the wishes of parents and friends or according to popularity trends without coming from understanding their strengths or passions.
- Choose a school but don't know what to study, study properly and what to do after graduation.
- Difficult in career development and advancement.
- No persistent, easy to change jobs or ""Standing from this mountain to look at that mountain"" - Vietnamese Proverb.

Solutions:

Stories like the above are not rare to come across in today's students. They are questions, thoughts, and times when students lose their career orientation. They need a mentor, an experienced person someone who has spent many years in career orientation or developing their own career path. JCI is a partner with the United Nations to implement 17 Sustainable Development Goals including Decent work and economic growth. We realize that this is a social problem that needs to be better solved, especially in the Central Vietnam. From the above problems, JCI Danang launched the 19 Train project to solve the problem of lacking career orientation and create a career development environment for Vietnamese students, specifically:

- Help students understand themselves, choose the right majors and career orientation while at university
- Help students have the opportunity to get closer and more specific access about real-life occupations through participating in talkshows, workshops, professional contests of mentors and trainers at businesses sharing about their professions in future.
- Help students have positive thinking, proactive attitude and practical skills before working at business
- Connect students to internships and officially work at the corporates

Mission:

Connect resources to solve the problem of lacking career orientation and create a career development environment for Vietnamese students

Vision:

Become the organization that brings the most value to students in career development, thereby helping to improve productivity of Vietnamese workers.

Project model:

- The implementation model of the project, connecting 3 objects: students, schools and businesses to bring specific values:
- Direct beneficiary Students: Have good career orientation and skills to get better jobs.
- Indirect beneficiary Enterprises: Having staffs with good professional skills, proactive working attitude to grow faster
- Implementation partners: Schools, other organizations: Support consultants, Mentor, provide resources (People, places, facilities, ...) for the project to operations

Project activities:

1. Talkshow about overall career orientation
2. The Y Factor Contest: This is an industry-specific competition, including industry-specific training programs and competition rounds for students to participate in. Helping students who are studying that profession to develop their thinking, equip them with knowledge and skills, approach real business problems, and be ready to enter the real battle phase - ""going to work"".
3. Implement the ""Talented Internship"" program, connecting students to internships at businesses.
