Nissan partners with the Raks Thai Foundation to build leadership skills for Thai students

BANGKOK, Thailand – Some 1,200 young Thai students – from grades 7 to 12 at eight selected schools in Ayutthaya and Rayong provinces – will benefit from a three-year Youth Leadership Development program sponsored by Nissan Motor Thailand Co, Ltd. in partnership with the Raks Thai Foundation.
The program was initiated by Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. through CARE International Japan. It began in 2017 with a focus on developing leadership skills through team building, improved self-esteem, analytical and decision making and management skills. The program also includes occupational skills training in a micro-business activity in the technical fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
The Young Leadership Development program in Thailand provides leadership development training and experiences to students at eight different schools in Ayuttaya and Ranong. This is achieved through leadership, occupational and entrepreneurial content presented at workshops, camps and project assignments where the students then apply to real-life situations what they have learned in these classes.
