YOUTH VOCATIONAL & SKILLS TRAINING
Mera Parivar has opened two youth centers in Rajiv Nagar and Dhanvapur (Gurgaon) offering comprehensive skill-development programs and vocational training opportunities. Youth follow classes on Computer basics, Retail Management, Office management, Career Guidance, Personality Development, Interview facing and English speaking.
Target group : youth who are socially , economically and politically backward and do not have the opportunity to learn and grow (age group : 18 to 25).
While attending the course, students become more attentive and motivated, gain confidence and improve their English, gaining the skills necessary to find a good job.
OUR TRAINING PROGRAM
Education and training are key determinants of success in the labor market. But unfortunately, existing systems are failing to address the learning needs of many young people, and surveys of learning outcomes and skills show that a large number of youth have low levels of achievement in basic literacy and numeracy. As a result, young people are almost three times more likely to be unemployed than adults and continuously exposed to lower quality of jobs, greater labor market inequalities, and longer and more insecure school-to-work transitions.
At Mera Parivar, we fully acknowledge that taking action for the integration of youth is more important today than ever before. India has the world’s largest youth population. In our NGO we work to meet the needs and aspirations of young people that will define our common future. The aim is to transform the lives of many youth and help them become entrepreneurs so that they participate to the economic and social development of India.
In Mera Parivar’s geography of intervention, Youth migrated from villages to cities with the hope of finding a good carrier, often dropping their studies without being aware of the harmful consequences. Unaware of the available career opportunities, these youth urgently need guidance and counsel to avoid wasting time and moving in the wrong direction. While their families are unaware of the importance of youth education or unable to support it, Mera Parivar Youth Empowerment program helps young people in the community to be aware of and access better opportunities for their future. Not only developing their professional career, youth are also acquiring self-empowerment skills and following personality guidance and training.
