ACADEMIC AND CAREER COUNSELING
To favor the integration of marginalized youth by facilitating their access to higher education, vocational training and employment
Youths from Krousar Thmey’s structures are still very often marked by their painful past. Although surrounded and supported while living in the center, they do not benefit from a family network that can provide advice, share their experience or support them in their search for studies or employment. In order to ensure that the support they have been provided with will enable these children to integrate in a sustainable way in Cambodian society, Krousar Thmey offers specific support.
- Individualized or collective follow-up sessions
- Visits of universities, training centers and companies
- Soft skills capacity-building training sessions and workshops
- Networking activities in search of potential employers
