STEP Students Showcase Skills at Open Day with Google Malaysia
03 July 2023

Over the past five months, the 50 students from the Skills Training and Employability Program (STEP) have embarked on a remarkable journey of personal growth and development. Under the guidance of dedicated skills trainers, these students have not only honed their abilities but also surpassed expectations. Recently, they organized an Open Day, where they proudly showcased their products and services, while putting their skills to the test through engaging workshops.

The Open Day served as a platform for the STEP students to exhibit their accomplishments and creativity. To make it more impactful, a group of 30 staff members from Google Malaysia actively participated in the workshops conducted by students.

Visitors participated in composting, baking, sewing, woodwork, and even haircutting and massage services. It was heartening to witness the enthusiasm and passion with which the students shared their skills. Each display reflected their dedication and the growth they had achieved during their time in the program.

From serving customers, pitching and selling products/services, and understanding financial aspects to fostering teamwork and developing comprehensive business plans, the program equips students with practical skills while instilling resilience, empathy, and social responsibility. By experiencing these real-world situations and embracing positive values, students gain the confidence and integrity to make a lasting impact on society in their respective fields.
