Our Future Career. PART I: Discussions/lectures monitored by a successful journalist
To help the students of Palanga Senoji Gimnazija choose the right career path, to give them some general tips on who to turn to and who to ignore, several events were organized by erasmus+ DARE team.
On September 13, 2019 Zivilė Karevaite – editor in chief of the portal ZMONES.lt , lecturer at SMK (College of Social Sciences in Vilnius, Lithuania), MA of International Communication at VU, volunteer at the Children‘s Support Centre – gave several lectures and monitored discussions.
Lesson 1 – Discussion for IVth grade students ‘Career (does not) define your life or how to choose that only path‘
Lesson 2 – Discussion for IIIrd grade students ‘I was told …, I read … or what happens when you fail to think‘
Lesson 3 – Lecture for Ist grade students ‘Modern heroes. How to become one?‘
The lecture, our ex-student, was very happy to return to her school and share her experience with the young generation. She was both positive and enthusiastic, encouraging the students to experiment and to think wwhat is best for them, not what is fashionable or liked by the majority. The students found the ideas very useful. Some students said the lecturer hepled them make up their mind whether to study abroad or in Lithuania, others claimed that she made them reconsider their career options. Everyone had food for thought. The junior students were motivated by the young successful Lithuanians, who were not afraid to experiment and go off the beaten track.
