General Information

The Career and Development Institute is a nonprofit organization focusing on career and personal development projects, starting with elementary school students at the end of their studies (8th and 9th grades) but focused mainly on the high school students over the whole Czech Republic.

Mission and Objectives

Our ambition is for early age students to make their own career choices – consciously and based on their interests and talents and to encourage them to aim high and reach long in their career growth, through positive reinforcement, critical thinking and professional support. In this way, we also help to ensure that more young adults contribute to the economic, civic, and social vitality of the Czech Republic.

Main Projects / Activities

Our main project is Karié An online learning platform designed primarily for students. The platform contains descriptions of different professions, motivational videos, podcasts, articles from experts and students. All of it is completed by information about current career and self-development opportunities (development projects, scholarship programs, excursions and internships, study abroad, etc.) shred at the social media. We are dedicated to providing them opportunities to participate in quality educational events and meet professionals in the field from whom they can learn. The aim of the platform is to inspire and motivate young people – especially students – to be proactive, pursue their interests and talents in their own careers, to show them the opportunities they have, and to inspire them. As one of the focuses of our organization is to develop effective cross-sectorial co-operation, we are also trying to make young people think critically about the content that they are receiving, find their way in their confusing small worlds and empower them.
