Mumbai, 16-March-2017:
The Don Bosco Development Society (DBDS) participated in the “Skill Development Career Guidance Fair” organized at YMCA on 16-March-2017. The fair was held in association with World Vision India. Mrs. Salma Prabhu (Executive Director - Academy for Counselling and Education Pvt. Ltd.) was the chief guest of the event.

The fair was meant for youth who are in the age group of 16 to 25 years studying or dropped out of school and looking for guidance in career options. 165 girls and boys from various slum pockets of Mumbai participated in the event. Majority of children were from the families where there is no one to guide them.

Mrs Surekha Pednekar (Coordinator – DBDS) spoke about the various courses that are conducted by DBDS at Matunga and in the various slum pockets of Mumbai.

In this event, DBDS had put up a stall where Mr Sunil Pandre (staff – DBDS) and Cleric Jeswin Mastan counselled 65 youth on various career options at DBDS and jobs available in the Market. It was a face to face, personal counselling on career in government, corporate and self-employment. It was quite an enriching experience for DBDS and the youth who participated in the Career Guidance Fair.
