SIPJ holds SEEED JobsForLife alumni gathering
SI Petaling Jaya held the inaugural reunion of SEEED JobsForLife alumni on 19 August 2017 at Hotel Armada in Petaling Jaya. The first SEEED programme began in Kuala Lumpur in January 2015, and was followed by a second programme in Pandamaran, Klang and a third in Kapar, Klang in 2016. Representatives from the three batches of graduates attended this reunion, together with many SIPJ members, SEEED facilitators and several guests.
Dato’ Anusha Santhirasthipam, conceptualiser of the SEEED JobsForLife programme, enthused: “We were amazed and excited to listen to their heartwarming stories, unique life experiences and new beginnings after graduating from this multiple award-winning transformational programme in 2015 and 2016.”
Many alumni who attended expressed that they would like to “pay forward” the opportunity they received and have offered to volunteer or become trainers or facilitators for future programmes. Some also shared novel ideas of how the programme can be adapted to social media and for future outreach.
