Himalayan Trust Nepal provides funding support to conduct a career-counselling program for the SEE graduates before they join College (10+2) every year. For that, Sherwi Yondhen Tshokpa (Khumbu Sherpa Student’s Forum), Khumjung School Alumni Association and Mahendra Jyoti Ex-Student’s Forum jointly conduct career counselling programme every year.
The counselling methodologies help students to assess their strength and identify their academic interests and goals and to improve their mental and emotional wellbeing. This component leads to a) better processing regarding career exploration and development b) facilitation of “who we are?” (identification of ourselves and how we see our personal development/growth) c) clearer perception and acceptance of the self and vice versa (acquiring knowledge of self and others). Besides counselling, it is also an opportunity for students to ask questions regarding their concerns, doubts, or feasibility options in the context of their academic, personal, and professional goals. Sketching, painting, photography, sculpture, singing, writing, etc., support the process of counselling.
