The event which held inside the Conference Hall of Community Comprehensive Secondary School, Rumuokwurushi, Port Harcourt featured career-enlightenment talks from resource persons drawn from the Etisalat Employee Volunteering Scheme, a platform through which Etisalat staff impact students within its host communities by delivering career enhancing sessions and mentorship to students in secondary schools. The initiative has so far reached 7,500 students since inception seven years ago.

Etisalat Nigeria has faith in the youth of Rivers state; they represent the hope of a brighter tomorrow. And that is why we are making this investment of time and resources.
The Principal, Community Comprehensive Secondary School, Rumuokwurushi, Dr. (Mrs.) Justina Dappa, appreciated Etisalat for helping students resolve the confusion that usually surrounds the choice of careers.
