Modhesh World, one of the region’s most popular ‘edutainment’ destinations for children and the whole family, gives opportunities to several young volunteers during their summer vacation so they could gain valuable work experience that could help them in their future careers.
Alex Castillo, a 15 year-old and student from The Philippine School, said that he could use this working experience in the future: “I am happy to be a part of Modhesh World as I know it will be to my advantage that I already have a working experience at such a young age, when I apply for a job someday. I really do love taking care of kids and it is always fun working and playing with them and because of that I enjoy my work” .
Yasmine Kagal, a 16-year-old kid from Syria, is thankful to Modhesh World for giving her a chance to experience working with the no.1 amusement park in the region: “I feel very lucky to be given a chance to work in Modhesh World for a few weeks, not all youth have this chance to enjoy summer while working in a jolly atmosphere and also acquire some knowledge”.
