Community Service Club (NCSC) Edvolution team launched project Siraat, which is
a career counselling project aimed towards Federal

in the career options and ever increasing competition has made career
counseling an indispensable pillar of Youth development. Siraat is aimed at providing free of cost
counselling through volunteers from NUST. The main motto of initiating this
project is to enlighten the minds of youth by showing them the right trail
which would lead them to their destiny. This project will be executed by career

educational, and life decisions.
