ACCELERATE is a fast‐track program designed for young adults (21-26) who need practical tips to ‘smoothen rough edges’ so as to ‘settle quickly’ into their internships/jobs. Our aim is to give you a schematic view of the concepts, principles, methodologies or tools for a more successful and enjoyable work life.
The ACCELERATE program is designed to be:
Holistic – in appealing to both your minds (intellect) and your hearts (passion);
Systematic – in building your professional development on a firm foundation.
There are two core components:
Accelerate Soft Skills Workshop:
These power-packed and highly interactive half-day workshops are tailored to equip you with essential skills that are desired by most organisations. Conducted mostly on Saturday mornings over a 3-hour duration, the series of Core Skills Workshops are designed to bring you through a systematic and modular learning journey from ‘Getting-the-Job’ to ‘Becoming an Effective Team Player’ and ‘Developing Your Leadership Qualities’.
Accelerate Roundtable and Clinic:
Roundtables are intended to give mentees deeper insights and opportunities to consult our domains experts on areas of specific interests.
Clinics are conducted in smaller groups and over a longer period of time. They usually involve pre-work, onsite teaching and discussion, and follow-up evaluation of your action plans. Accelerate Clinics are organised on a need basis, like the Startup Clinic, to guide mentees in their plans to start-up a business.
Who Can Participate
- ASPIRE mentees who desire more exposure to other fields of interests.
- Undergrads who desire to have an early and ongoing preparation for their work lives, and
- Young adults age 21-26 who need a handle to develop their early careers.
