Yuva Parivartan Livelihood Exchange
Kherwadi Social Welfare Association started the Yuva Parivartan
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 more than 6,50,000 students, from 1 centre to more than 650 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
Focus on hands on 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
