In Delhi, our focus is on girls and young women. We aim to open up diverse career opportunities by equipping them with the skills necessary to succeed in a 21st century workplace.
We partner with colleges, women’s institutes, NGOs, industrial training institutes and polytechnics to provide skills training for young women.
In working with the Government, we have the ability to create a model that will serve as a standard in the region for creating change.
Our vision for Delhi/NCR is to reach out to 20,000 young people by the year 2020 to build critical 21st century skills to assist them as they navigate their career pathways.
Out of these 20,000 young people that we aim to serve, at least 80% will be young women.
Strategy and Approach
To achieve this vision, we are working primarily with Government ITIs and Polytechnics, along with a few community centres with the following goals in place:
- A customized blended learning curriculum will be delivered which includes digital sessions, classroom sessions, workbooks for self-reflection, outdoor activities, and exposure to the world of work
- Simultaneously, the training of trainers (ToTs) on key facilitation skills will be organised across institutes.
- We will start and run alumni engagement and industry connect activities to help the institutes build a robust placement cell to connect the youth to relevant opportunities
In the region, the larger goal is to build vibrancy in these technical training institutes/centres with a renewed focus on career and industry engagement.
