CareerAware

Problem

Young people, facing the possibility of failing 10th or 12th standard exams, are at risk of dropping out of school.  Once they do so, the only avenues open to them are menial jobs in the unorganised sector.

Antarang, through our CareerAware program, emphasises the importance of completing 10th and 12th standard, and works with students to help them understand the careers best suited to their individual talents and preferences.
 
This program makes students examine themselves carefully and chart a course for the future based on these learnings.
