MySkills Foundation was approached by Asurion, a US-based tech solutions provider, in 2021 to participate in their TechAssist program – an internship program designed to train and provide high-income work towards students from B40 backgrounds. To date, 6 students have successfully completed this internship and gone on to work as data technicians.
On the 11th of January, 2023 – Asurion Malaysia brought 25 of their management team to spend the day at our Kalumpang campus, led by their General Manager, Mr. Saravanan Kollanthavelu or Mr. Sam as he’s known. We are deeply appreciative of the commitment and dedication the management team of Asurion Malaysia has shown towards our students involved in the TechAssist internship, and infinitely grateful towards them for taking time out of their busy schedules in order to spend an entire day with our students – learning more about MySkills and involved in various activities planned with our students.
The event itself was concluded with a traditional yee sang celebration for the entire campus in conjunction with the upcoming Lunar New Year festivities, that in itself providing a wonderful experience for our students. Thank you so much Asurion Malaysia for your visit to our campus and your commitment to empowering B40 youth. We hope to see you again soon at MySkills Campus!
