The Gujarat Vision 2022 aims to reach 100,000 youth across 33 districts in the state. In over 200 centres, we aim to be a knowledge hub for education institutions and create a benchmark for 21st Century Skills training and get youth career ready. 

About

It is our aim to empower institutions to deliver quality youth skilling programs with a blended learning approach. We endeavour to be a resource centre for the community by creating employability skills labs, 10 model career clubs, and 10 model career centres in ITIs, colleges and institutes.

There is a need for massive skills training to meet the high-growth employment requirements across sectors. Through our extensive work in Gujarat, we have found that the focus of skills development needs to be on adolescents and youth that are in the following categories:

  • Out-of-school youth searching for work
  • Students in ITIs, polytechnics and other colleges who lack career guidance, work preparedness and entrepreneurial skills
  • Rural youth wanting to upskill and access the local jobs market as well as other opportunities

Our strategy in Gujarat is to create learning environments that will enable the youth to get meaningful jobs. Our partners include ITIs, vocational training centres, NGOs and community based organizations.

Vision 2020

Over the next 3 years, we will reach out to more than 15,000 youth in Gujarat through a combination of strategies and initiatives including: English communication, IT skills, career orientation and guidance, work readiness, and life skills.   

Need and Strategy

This is a focus that we aim to invest in through the network in different parts of Gujarat. To create a model that can be replicated in a goal that will go on to create an impact in employment amongst civil society organizations.
