SOCAL TAMIL YOUTH LEADERSHIP & ENTREPRENEURSHIP
- STYLE (Socal Tamil Youth Leadership and Entrepreneurship) is a project initiated by our Southern California Tamil Association.
- This program was planned and started in 2018 keeping in mind students from middle to high school and those who are in early years of college.
- At present, the program is open to children (12 years and above) .
- The purpose of this program is to help build leadership skills, be a forum to help motivate our children in public speaking, volunteering and help nurture their entrepreneurial skills.
- In addition, we are also exposing our kids to various career opportunities and related educational programs.
- We started this program with about 15 students which has now grown to about 35 students with tremendous support from parents. These classes, which were conducted in person, are now implemented through online due to the pandemic situation.
- Through this program, in the year 2020 (Jan – Dec) we have conducted 24 sessions under different categories. Highlight of this year is the 8 sessions on Financial awareness that we conducted for the students during the Summer break on topics like Income, Expenditure, Budget, Savings, Credit-Debit, etc. In total, 32 students benefited from these Summer sessions.
- We are looking for feedback to improve the program and to help grow with more enrollment.
- We sincerely request parents to give their full support to this new endeavor!
Please whisper about us in your community! Thank you!
