The project work is a combination of online courses that have videos, interactive discussions, reflection questions and tasks. This is a critical part of the learning experience, as you cannot learn a skill without actually practicing that skill. This also gives each Fellow the chance to learn outside of the sessions, whenever the time is most convenient for them, and to develop an awareness of the topic/subject so that they can build on that knowledge during the fellowship session.
With the advent of COVID-19, the economy and job market has gotten tougher and more uncertain. This has actually created a stronger need for the Career-Prep Fellowship – to ensure that the youth is empowered with the skills and mindsets they need to deal with adversity, facing new challenges in the economy and essentially emerging stronger.
Amal Academy is not a tuition center: we are an education venture with a vision of changing the education system in Pakistan in order to create lifelong learners, self-starters and problem solvers. To achieve this, our approach is to create a model platform – through our Career Prep Fellowship – that trains over 10,000 students and is eventually integrated into the public university system/curriculum.
The Career-Prep Fellowship has been adapted to an online format to facilitate the need of the hour. Our Curriculum Team, including alumni from Stanford, Harvard, DAAD, Fulbright, LUMS, and TFP, have redesigned the program to keep the fun and engagement intact while helping Fellows discover themselves and develop life-long connections beyond their geographical boundaries. Our sessions are held through video-conferencing, and are supplemented with an array of interactive team-based projects that help implement the learning experience. The new curriculum also focuses on developing skills to help Fellows thrive in a digital environment, preparing them for a post COVID world.
The Amal Career-Prep Fellowship is a three-month soft-skills and leadership development program designed for 3rd/final year university students and recent graduates stepping into their professional lives; primarily those seeking jobs, internships, or entrepreneurship. This program helps bridge the gap between industry and academia through an experiential learning model aiming to develop the mindsets (purpose, self-efficacy, resilience, etc.) and job skills (confidence, time-management, teamwork, resume-writing, interviewing etc.) required for professional success.
