Vision: Every student in Estonia knows how to find their own way.

Mission: We bring career-related meetings with the world of education and work to all students in Estonia.

Solution: With the support of the online platform, we help to easily and quickly agree on guest lessons, shadings and study visits introducing the world of education and work.

Focus: Through the program, we help schools conduct career learning. As a sub-activity, we support the teaching of entrepreneurship and financial wisdom.

Why is it necessary to raise the career awareness of young people? International career studies show that young people's job aspirations are often limited in their range of choices and without an idea of the real world of work. An important influence on young people's career decisions is social background. (Conference "A bold leap into the unknown?" , 2020) As a summary of the results of the OECD International Study on Learning Skills PISA 2018 in Estonia, it is safe to say that compared to the previous survey, the proportion of students who are unable to answer about their possible future occupation has increased (from 15% to 21%).

In order to ensure well-thought-out choices and decisions, it is necessary to pay more attention to the planning and counselling of a young person's career. The authors of the Education Strategy 2035 estimate that the level of teaching career skills and entrepreneurship is uneven. It is time-consuming for teachers to involve participants in their own studies on their own with a busy schedule, but young people need role models and inspiration to fulfil their potential.
