The principal power of a country’s human resource lies with the young generation. It is important to identify and harness the youth’s potential to the best extent. This is possible only when the young populace is well – trained and skilled in various fields.
The Skill Development Program, launched by the Rajasthan Government, is an initiative to empower the youth. The program aims at building a stronger youth power for the state’s development.
With the increasing development in technology, practical skills are a necessity along with theoretical knowledge. The 1 – day training program works with the objective of providing practical training to the youth in the field of planning and entrepreneurship. The program values the role of vocational qualities. Therefore, it imparts preparation for skill – development.
The camp was organized in Agarwal P.G. College, Jaipur. A total of 4500 youngsters participated in the event, making it a huge success. The camp was joined by 43 big corporations and companies as the event’s sponsors. Various social development institutes worked as planning partners in the program to mete out the training. This event is a government – funded workshop, but various private sector companies from different sectors collaborated in the project.
Mass Recruitment along with skill – training
The event witnessed a mass recruitment drive, where several companies offered on-the-spot employment and training jobs. The state’s chief minister, Vasundhara Rajye, praised the participants for their zeal and sincerity. She also showed her appreciation to the companies who presented employment and training opportunities to the youth. Many political leaders who came to the camp congratulated the government for hosting a successful event. They also encouraged the young participants to nurture their skills to the best for contributing to the progress of the state and the nation, on a whole.
Opportunity to rural youth
One of the chief motives of the event was to provide training to people belonging to the rural villages. Due to the lack of educational institutes in rural areas, most of the youths remain jobless and adversely impact the rural economy. Through this event, they were able to acquire skill – development training which will aid them in getting a job.
