Thought for the day
"Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened."
- Matthew 7:7-8
The CSI Synod Youth Department in an attempt to enhance the skill sets of rural youth had organized 3 day skill development program in Allagadda CSI Palasagaram rural Pastorate for the Diocese of Rayalaseema from 21st to 23rd February 2020.
Appropriate soft skills play an important role in a successful career as well as during social interactions in the society. Today skills are also highly sought after by employers recruiting fresh graduates for their organizations. Often people hold a misconception that soft skills are useful for social interaction and only career advancement. However, skills contribute considerably to academic performance too.
Keeping this is mind the training facilitated by Skill Factory touched on important areas like Self Confidence, Conflict Management, Public Speaking, Social Etiquettes, Career Development, Goal Setting etc.
The program was inaugurated by the Secretary of Rayalaseema Diocese Rev. C. Ananda Rao along with the assistant Secretary, SCC Chairman and other presbyters of the Diocese
On all the three days devotions were held by the presbyters of Rayalaseema Diocese and rest of the training was conducted.
