CAREER GUIDANCE PROGRAM FOR VOCATIONAL TRAINING OF SCHOOL DROPOUT YOUTH

In a Skill training programme for school drop out youth in Delhi NCR, a program supported by Sir Jamseth Ji Tata Trust (SJTT), the gap areas in youth employability efforts were identified. Youth and NGOs working with youth felt that critical issues obstructing the sustainability of training and employment programs were high drop out rates from school or vocational training, absenteeism, learning difficulties, poor transfer of learning to daily life, lack of perspective on future career paths, behavioral and conduct problems, low self-esteem, poor performance at vocational training, actual place of work/adjustment issues and very low confidence.

Key action areas that emerged were to support children and youth with regular access to quality in-depth counseling, career counselling, need for an effective program in communications focusing at strengthening the use of English language, exposure to new work opportunities, training in certain prerequisites to augment work options and creative inputs into already existing courses.

Manas developed a career guidance manual in partnership with Youth Reach foundation for an intervention with youth and adolescents who have either dropped out of school or have taken to vocational education in place of the regular school. This manual has been developed in consonance with the needs of this group and is implemented with over 6000 youth, where we provided career counseling to these youth directly.
