Watch: Anthony Hadeed's programme to help youth find the right career

Last August, career coach, Anthony Hadeed challenged himself to walk from Skinner Park, San Fernando to the Queen’s Park Savannah in order to raise funds for career coaching for youth. The general public was invited to sponsor as many kilometres as they'd like.

We caught up with Hadeed eight months later, where he told us more about the journey, as well as how the money raised now help young adults understand what is the career path most suited to them.


The funds raised will go toward the VSOCA-F3 Outreach Programme. Otherwise known as the Vocational Style and Career Assessment for Form 3 students, the programme is designed for senior secondary school and university students in the Caribbean.

The tool will assess students' psyche to determine the best career choices taking personality, employability and industry growth projections into consideration. The opportunity to access psychometric evaluation and career coaching for just $100. Usually priced at $500, the subsidized cost will be open to 250 students until the end of April.

"Matching people with their most suitable careers or life paths can really have a positive impact both on their individual as well as their future employer and colleagues," Hadeed said.
