Youth unemployment and
underemployment is prevalent around
the world because young people lack
skills, work experience, job search
abilities and the financial resources to
find employment (United Nations, 2003;
ILO, 2006; Matsumoto., 2012). In
developing countries, this situation is
exacerbated by poverty and the
competitive pressures that result from a
rapidly growing labour force.
According to ILO’s GlobalTrends
Report 2012 onYouth, nearly 75 million
young people are unemployed across
the world, which represents an
increase of more than 4 million since
2007 (ILO, 2012).
These challenges are evident in India,
which has the largest youth population in
the world with around
66 per cent of the total population under
the age of 35. According to 2010
population figures, one in
five young people in the world is an Indian
57% of Indian youth lack sufficient skill sets to
be considered fully employable.
80% of the Indian workforce does not possess
identifiable, marketable skills.
47% of Indian graduates are not employable in
any sector of the knowledge economy.
1.2 crore people will join the job market every
year, over the coming decade.
More than half of India’s population is under
the age of 25 and around 10 lakh people are
expected to join the workforce every month.
Around 75% of technical graduates and 85%
of general graduates are unemployable.The
lack of marketable skills hinder youth from
securing gainful employment, thus
preventing them from realizing their
aspirations and becoming productive
members of society.This also creates a chasm
between the manpower requirements of the
industry and the pool of skilled workforce
that is available in the market, leading to
reduced corporate profits, lower tax
revenues for the government and lower
overall economic output.
In recognition of the importance of
the youth employment challenge in
India, the Prime Minister, Manmohan
Singh, stated at the 44th Indian
Labour Conference in February 2012,
‘Youth employment is a high-priority
agenda item for our government.This
can happen only if we equip our
young people with skills that are
required to meet the demands of our
rapidly growing economy
As we know that the young people are a
major resource for development, key
agents for change and driving force for
economic development and technology
innovation.And in today's world the
youth challenges is considered to be
most critical challenge of the 21st
century and mostly being an engineer, I
saw that 75% of technical student are not
fit for job, this is a very large percentage
and this also not what Gandhiji wants'
from Indian youth he wants' the army of
doctors and engineers but for
developing the country not become a
burden on the country economy. just for
this reason I have taken to develop this
Providing an overall developing kit at institutions will build the
skills in youth and remove their problem of unemployment

How can these three can
Engage: Project-Based Learning
Connect: Integrated Studies
Share: Cooperative Learning
Coach: Intellectual and Emotional Guide
How Student can be motivated?
Praise Students inWays Big and Small
Recognize work in class, display good work in the classroom and send positive notes home to parents, hold
weekly awards in classroom, organize academic pep rallies to honor the honor roll, and even sponsor aTeacher
Shout out section in the student newspaper to acknowledge student’s hard work.
Set high, yet realistic expectations. Make sure to voice those expectations. Set short terms goals and celebrate
when they are achieved
Spread Excitement Like aVirus
Show your enthusiasm in the subject and use appropriate, concrete and understandable examples to help students
grasp it. For example, I love alliteration. Before I explain the concept to students, we “improve” subjects they’re
interested in.After learning about alliteration, they brainstorm alliterative titles for their chosen subjects.
In those difficult classes, it can feel like a never-ending uphill battle, so try to remind students that they’ve come a
long way. Set achievable, short-term goals, emphasis improvement, keep self-evaluation forms to fill out and
compare throughout the year, or revisit mastered concepts that they once struggled with to refresh their
How Institutional Building Mechanism can be
Language skills Soft skills
Chivalry [Respect of women]
At every institution there should be an Humanities Department where its major concern
should be to develop language skills along with social skills .
The impact of ODK Program will be as follows:
It will be helpful in developing

Quality of education will be improved drastically all over India.
The problem of losing hope,lack of confidence,by Indian youth will be removed.
Language skills will be developed in a tremendous manner
Challenges and Risks
Unemployed youth do not see the value of vocational
education and prefer formal programs.
Difficulty in integrating with government infrastructure and
Low literacy levels severely hamper efforts to promote
employability among the youth.An estimated 27 crore people
in India aged 15 years and over are illiterate.
Poor levels of English and communication skills are major
problems faced by a large section of youth in India.This also
reduces the marketability of job-seekers in the services
domain, which accounts for over 56.5% of India’s GDP.
Lack co-ordination between the 17 different ministries that
offer various skill development programs has undermined
delivery of programs
Academic standards are low in vast majority of the
educational institutes. Sub-par academic standards lead to low
quality graduates who have trouble securing employment.
Placement of students will be a big challenge
Advertising/ Awareness Campaign at a
Tie-ups with placement agencies
Tie-ups with industries for internships/
Bringing in industry leaders/ NGOs for
curriculum and training inputs
Funding from other sources or self funded
model via training fees.
-Entrepreneurship-cell should be
developed at every institution.
Proper Fund utilization.
Instead of short term profit the concern
should be on long term gain.
