Kalsom Harapan is a secondary school mentorship programme that aims to provide perpetual assistance and guidance to beneficiaries. The establishment of this programme is in accordance with The Kalsom Movement’s vision to act as a platform between knowledge and opportunity gap between the privileged and the less privileged.
Once every two weeks for approximately six months, Kalsom Harapan sessions will be conducted virtually and beneficiaries will be paired with highly-selected and committed facilitators through a mentor-mentee initiative throughout the whole duration of the programme.
Lastly, the modules for each session are framed based on The Kalsom Movement’s pillars that encourage the pursuit of knowledge and personal development, promoting the usage of skills of the future, and instilling confidence in the beneficiaries to communicate effectively in English.
KALSOM REIGNITE AND REVISIT CAMP
This programme is created to provide a continuous support for our beneficiaries after joining the one-week Projek Kalsom Motivational Camp. The modules created will be more academically focused to prepare them for the upcoming Sijil Penilaian Menengah (SPM) examination.
- To provide continuous support to our beneficiaries
- To keep the connection between The Kalsom Movement and our beneficiaries
- To spread awareness in volunteerism by involving other body/organization in our cause through a collaboration.
Kalsom Revisit Workshop
The programme is expected to take place in the early March of the following year post to Projek Kalsom Motivational Camp to give the students an early start before SPM. We have been partnering with Malaysian Students’ Council of Australia (MASCA) for the past 3 years to carry out the revisit workshop. This first workshop is academically focused and will aim to deliver a recap of what they have learnt throughout Form Four in certain subjects.
Kalsom Reignite Workshop
The second round of Kalsom Revisit Workshop is expected to take place in August of the following year post to Projek Kalsom Motivational Camp. This workshop will be conducted by Kalsom Global Chapters and facilitators who have volunteered during Projek Kalsom Motivational Camp will return to revisit the respective schools to encourage the students to focus and perform well in their final preparations for SPM. The focus of this second workshop is to provide final motivational boosts to the students before the big examination.
They are arranged according to our Developmental Curve and are crafted by our highly-selected facilitators’ based on fixed objectives determined by the camp directors. Facilitators are closely guided on producing creative, interactive and impactful modules. When put together in a well-though structure, these modules harmoniously result in student-beneficiaries’ improvement in terms of knowledge, practical skills, motivation and self-esteem.
Kalsom Academy aims to create a ripple effect among the beneficiaries using the top-down method. It provides a guided training ground for the beneficiaries to seize opportunities in spreading their knowledge, soft skills and gain motivational guidance from qualified facilitators. The on-going training will prep beneficiaries with the proper knowledge and skill, so they are able to help and inspire others as well to create an impact within their community.
This year, there will be gradual tasks of conducting activities that are assigned to beneficiaries with the supervision from the facilitator . All the activities centred around the four pillars of TKM. The final product will be their ability to conduct a similar camp of TKM in their school.
The training and assigned tasks will be conducted with the guidance and help from Malaysian-based facilitators to equip beneficiaries with the academic and general knowledge as well as adequate matters of the English language to prepare them for a self-sustaining future. The programme also enhances the confidence as well as transform the beneficiaries to become more self-driven and independently capable in pursuing and seeking knowledge. The beneficiaries will be guided on ways to transform and share their knowledge and ideas with others through various means. The programme aims to initiate a learning platform by which students can share their knowledge and to inspire each other to achieve their outmost potential.
Kalsom Sejahtera is a new initiative by the Kalsom Movement, first introduced in 2020. The idea behind Kalsom Sejahtera is to expose secondary school students to different areas that are often gone unexposed to them, such as political literacy, child advocacy and environmental issues, through boot workshops. These are carefully chosen from current critical issues in society.
As it is a sustainability programme, the duration of the Kalsom Sejahtera is 5 months, on-going from February to June. There are 5 phases: input development, project planning, project pitching, project preparation and project execution. These students are educated, guided, trained and refined on the selected issues. The modules developed for these students focus on aspects of sustainability to ensure that their knowledge circulates and grows in the community. Upon completion of the project, these beneficiaries are required to produce a proposal to be presented to corporate industry partners.
Kalsom Sejahtera seeks to ensure that these students do not only benefit in improving their education but enhance their life and people around them. The final product is getting them to execute the chosen project in their community. This initiative ensures that the beneficiaries would be the key drivers in their community and become student leaders that would inspire and further organize activities through modules they have learned before.
