The youth comprises over one-third of the Indian population which in turn constitutes a major part of the labour force of the country. The number of underprivileged youth in India who lacks education and proper guidance is so huge that according to the reports of the Financial Express "Only 15%of the young graduates passing out of colleges are employable; the rest are branded 'unemployable'."

It is not their lack of theoretical knowledge that causes this. Instead, it is the lack of right skills and attitude. There is thus, an increasing concern among the leading employers of the country, about the dearth of ready-to-deliver employees. In addition, the macro perspective affirms that, it is crucial for the energy of the underprivileged youth to be channelized properly with proper direction to aid economic growth and nation building to elude their addition to family woes, social stress and national misery.

"SAMATHWA A SEAT FOR YOUTH" (Additional Skill Enrichment Action in Training) is such an initiative of SAMATHWA that aims at creating a pool of young and independent people, from a section of underprivileged youth, through skill enhancement in tandem with market requirements. It is an effort towards bridging the gap between demand and supply of skilled manpower in the fast emerging services and retail sectors of modern India. We provide Vocational Trainings, Soft Skill Trainings etc. to youth. Also we encourage youth, who prefer formal education, to plan their career in advance and to gain knowledge, during their formal education, for achieving their career objectives. And guide them to choose better courses from non-formal educational institutions, to complete during their formal education period itself. So that the youth will be eligible for entering into the industry, after their formal studies, with immediate effect and so can control the youth unemployment in the country.

SAMATHWA also trains the urban underprivileged youth in English Proficiency, Basic Computer Education and Soft Skills for enhancing their prospects of employment in the fast expanding domains of Industry.

We hereby welcome youth clubs and groups from Rural areas to work together for development and to implement the programme, "A SEAT FOR YOUTH" in your village. For more details on our Youth Empowerment Programmes and to Associate with us in "A SEAT FOR YOUTH" Programme, please click on:
