Yuva Parivartan is a collective effort of transformers, visionaries, corporates, and the benefactors. An NGO which was cradled in the Kherwadi region of Bandra, is now brimming with endless energy and has spread across the entire nation. In 15 years of its existence, Yuva Parivartan has shown a tremendous growth. The parent centre has now branched out to over 300 centres across 18 states of India, which includes 50 Livelihood Development Centres, more than 200 Partnership Centres, 5 jail Centres and over 2000 mobile rural camp centres. As one of the largest NGOs in the livelihood space in India that works for the “out of school” youth, we strongly believe that the nation’s strength and future lies in the hands of its youth. Unlike the developed countries where 90% youth opt for some or the other sort of vocational training, less than 5% undergo vocational training in our country despite the fact that India is a country with the largest youth population.
From 100 students to 4,00,000 students, from 1 centre to more than 300 centres, from the violence affected tribal areas of Maharashtra to the hostile snow-clad terrain of Kashmir, Yuva Parivartan has expanded its horizons to become a national movement.
At Yuva Parivartan, we run the only inclusive program in India. The key features of the program are:
Admission to anyone who can read and write with no formal education
Provide vocational training (70% practical & 30% theory)
Soch Ka Parivartan (SKP) - a proprietary program for attitudinal change and life skills such as decision making, time management, money management, values & perception, health & hygiene, work readiness, etc.
Enabling courses in English speaking and basic computer
Community Engagement, Counselling and Mentoring
Job placements and assistance for self-employment.
We adopt a holistic approach of enhancing the less fortunate youth with vocational skills, guidance, counselling and financial assistance.
