Youth of all countries constitutes the true wealth and future of the country. In our country, the population in the age group (16-35) is considered as the youth. According to the 2011 census, the youth population is 40.3% of the total population. Even though they are educated, they are unable to compete in job market due to lack of life skills and vocational training. Life skills increase young people's wellbeing and help them to develop into active and productive members of their communities. For example, the WHO has defined life skills as “abilities for adaptive and positive behaviour that enable individuals to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of everyday life,” while UNICEF has defined them as a “large group of psycho-social and interpersonal skills that can help people make informed decisions, communicate effectively, and develop coping and self-management skills that may help lead a healthy and productive life.” Youth empowerment is one of the major programs of VIN’s Integrated Community Development Approach. The goal of Youth Personality Development is to empower youth socially and economically through education, developing their life skills & providing entrepreneurship development. VIN welcomes volunteers from across the globe so as to assimilate youth with life skills training, personality development, entrepreneurship training etc.
