'Yuva Beacon' Career Advisory program for School Children CSR Initiative of Federal Bank
The 'Yuva Beacon' project - A CSR activity of Federal Bank
‘Yuva Beacon’ is a Career Advisory program that was launched by The Federal Bank for the benefit of school students across Kerala. The programme was intended to create awareness amongst students on the wide range of career courses and options available today. Students were advised about the need for career planning before leaving school.
A specially designed Career guidance booklet with various course details were distributed at every school to all the students so that they could take it home and discuss the available options with their parents.
The Federal Bank Managers attended the seminars and spoke about the bank and banking as a career. Yuva Mitra account opening forms were also distributed at every school to instil in them the concept of ‘savings’ at an early age.
The school managements were highly appreciative of the initiative taken by Federal Bank for the Yuva Beacon project. Students have also reported their satisfaction that they could learn about alternative careers open to them. As of date, the project has been successfully conducted in 75 schools spread across 10 districts of Kerala State, covering 9255 students.
