After 5 helps develop youth by providing information to students who lack access to information and opportunities. The students are exposed to available choices, information and resources before making the right decision based on their interests, motivation and potential. In the long term, we want the youth in the country to make informed choices about their life/career path through opportunities we provide them. It is named After 5, as the target beneficiary are students after Form 5 (secondary school) yet also meant for the corporate partners and communities involved after working hours (After 5…pm onwards).
High school graduates in less privileged areas of Malaysia face difficulties upon graduation from lack of access to information and skill-sets necessary to help them succeed in the 21st century. 1/5 of the Malaysian population is made up of youth. It is important for these leaders to be well groomed and prepared to lead at national, regional and international level. Our information infrastructure encompasses both access to Internet and role models available for youth to emulate.
