The connection to schools in Ticino
It’s important that contacts are maintained, but nonetheless important is to network: Together with schools, school administrators and teachers in Ticino, the youth shall be promoted. To accomplish this, they can benefit from the program "Personal Economics" of YES, where students deal with topics such as the economy, society and the environment.
The program is made up of various modules that can be chosen according to interest. For example, in the "Money Management" module, students learn to plan personal budgets and become aware of their role as consumers. Whereas in the "Job Application Process" module, they are prepared for the job search by practicing job interviews with experienced business people from the economy.
As part of an assignment, volunteers bring their own experiences from the world of work to the classroom and pass on their knowledge to the young people – shaping the future of tomorrow.
