Employability Education for Youth

By Medha

Medha brings holistic career services to under-resourced educational institutions. Many higher secondary, vocational/technical and undergrad programs are unable to adequately prepare and support students as they transition from school to work. Medha fills this gap with quality facilitator who train, mentor, and connect young people to career opportunities they are passionate about.
