READY, STEADY, BY GO!
The Bhavishya Yaan Finishing School Lab 2019 was held from April 1 to 5, 2019 at Indian School of Design & Innovation. Success in the 21st century comes to those who know and understand themselves, their strengths and how best they perform. As we all know, a person can perform only from his strength – one cannot build performance on weaknesses.
Realising the untapped potential in our youth, 3C Advisory ran a five-day Finishing School Lab for students of class 10 from the BY programme of the Rotary Club of Bombay at ISDI, Lower Parel by Pratibha Pai and Geetha Dhote. Geeta and Pratibha run 3C Advisory that, among other training, helps youth understand and unleash their potential to be the best version of themselves.
Sessions began with a selfawareness exercise to make students understand their values, calling and strengths, and also their hopes and fears. Through interactive sessions and videos on the importance of attitude, grooming and etiquette, art of communication, overcoming fear, goal-setting, students were made aware
of how to create an impact.
Role plays, story-telling by students, exercises and presentations helped students become more confident and learn life skills as well. The lab ended with a talk on career options based on individual personality, aptitude and desire of individuals, and a talk on motivation.
Students enjoyed the sessions as was evident from their feedback. Many students shared, in the first few minutes each day, how they implemented some of the earlier day’s learnings and what results they saw from the change.
The Rotary Club of Bombay sincerely thanks Pratibha Pai and Geeta Dhote for taking time out of their busy schedule to do this. They volunteered to groom more than a hundred BY students who appeared for SSC examinations this year by giving them socio-cultural exposure to help complete the educational experience and prepare them for life ahead and to equip them with the required skill sets to adapt, thrive and succeed in the real world, be it higher education or the workplace.
Special thanks to Rtn. Indu Shahani for letting Bhavishya Yaan Committee use the facilities at ISDI.
