Creating Empowerment and Employment for Mumbai Youth

TechnoServe received the Citi Foundation's 2016 India Innovation Grant for the Creating Employment and Empowerment through Youth Development (CREEYD) project. The partnership will train and prepare 1,250 youth from underprivileged backgrounds in Mumbai towards improved career trajectories. Many college students from underprivileged backgrounds face significant challenges in securing formal sector employment due to a lack of critical skills in addition to inadequate job placement and counselling facilities. TechnoServe’s structured intervention model makes the entire suite of employability services available to students through Career Centers within college premises, implementing deep engagement with students and effective outreach.
