Students in their last year of secondary education have begun to participate in a series of vocational guidance activities.
Santiago de Chile, 2 July.- A project carried out by Fundación Telefónica in Chile is helping the students of Santiago to make the difficult decision of choosing their career path. The project Intervención Temprana (Early Intervention) is developing a number of activities to be carried out until September of this year.
The aim is to provide vocational guidance to beneficiaries of Fundación Telefónica who will be graduating this year from the Proniño programme and are in their last year of secondary education.
The first activity carried out was the Demonstration of Didactic Activities, in which 58 members of the Fundación Telefónica Youth Network participated from two schools in the Chilean capital. The initiative included activities in which the young people were able to progress in the construction of their life project.
In order to choose, it is necessary to interact
The second activity of the Intervención Temprana initiative carried out up to now took a group of 96 students on a visit to the main campus of the Universidad de Las Americas, in Santiago. According to Iris Solórzano, co-coordinator of Jóvenes Fundación Telefónica Chile, the aim of the activity was to “provide the chance for young people to live experiences, where they would be able to interact with the university world and therefore be able to get a clear picture of the broad array of courses”.
Students had the opportunity to hear about the activities undertaken on a daily basis by university students depending on their chosen course. Furthermore, they were able to visit the extensive facilities of the campus, including a number of specialisation centres such as Medical Simulation Centres and Virtual Simulation Laboratories, Sound Engineering Labs and Biology Labs.
The project Intervención Temprana will be carried out until September of this year, and the group activities will also include motivational speeches with special guests. The project will also offer personal and academic tutorship.
