Asante Professionals Club hold Schools Outreach at Offinso North

The Asante Professionals Club, over the weekend, embarked on a Career Guidance and Motivational Outreach to Senior High Schools in the Offinso North District.
The Club assembled over one thousand final year students from Nkekanso, Dwamena Akenten, Asuoso and Akomadan Senior High Schools at Akomadan for this important outreach.
The Outreach saw the students of these four schools taken through Career Choices, Study Tips and motivational talks on how to be successful in their examinations.
The Club, APC for short, is a voluntary “think and do-tank” club, comprising professionals from the Asante Kingdom. It is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization with a high interest in the development of Asanteman and its people. In particular, it has a huge mandate towards the empowerment of the youth and sees education as a key mechanism in actualising this. This is one of many outreaches they have undertaken this year alone.
Members agreed that it was an awesome and fulfilling experience providing career guidance and counselling to young people especially as the students can relate with the members education journeys and be inspired by the outcomes. As a development club, being able to impact young ones is one of the reasons why they come together, pool resources and embark on such programmes.
The issue of an old student of Akomadan SHS who had six Grade As in her WASSCE but couldn’t continue to University for luck of funds was brought to the attention of the Club and a member graciously committed to financially assisting her to further her education.
The club continues to be inspired by John Dewey’s quote that Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself.
