ACTIVITIES

Through years of working on the ground, we have realized that the problem of the school dropouts from underprivileged families is not only economic poverty but also social poverty. By social poverty, we mean the absence of social support systems and the socio-cultural atmosphere that positively impacts school dropouts to improving themselves. We at Yuva Parivartan have developed a model and identified 4 areas of work which forms the 4 pillars of the Yuva Parivartan model.

THE 4 PILLARS OF YUVA PARIVARTAN:

COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT

Community engagement aims to develop leadership among underprivileged youth and solve community problems. Issues like leadership development, community work, problem solving, sports, culture, recreation & life skills are taken up.

INDUSTRY PARTNERSHIP

The next pillar is Partnership with major stake holders, Industry, Government, NGO’s and communities. This also includes tying up with trade agencies and associations for employment opportunities in the unorganized sector. At Yuva Parivartan, we also arrange industry visits for new students as these industry partners can be potential employers.

LIVELIHOOD TRAINING

Create wage and self-employment and empowerment for bringing these students to the economic mainstream. ‘Livelihood Training’ aims at solving the problem of school dropouts without marketable skills. This training enables the students to gain expertise in skills like Electrical Wireman, A/C Refrigeration, Motor Mechanic, Motor Driving, etc. for boys and courses like Tailoring, Cutting, Beautician, Mehendi etc. for girls.

LIVELIHOOD SUPPORT

Of the total students trained each year, approximately 60% are gainfully employed either through a wage or self-employment. YP has a dedicated Placement Cell at the Head Office and has tie ups with many small and large companies along with Livelihood Coordinators spread across the geography.
