About Yuva Parivartan

What started out as a project to provide vocational training to school drop-outs in Mumbai, in order that they be given a ‘Second Chance’ has now become a nation-wide movement. Yuva Parivartan (YP), a project of the Kherwadi Social Welfare Association (KSWA) reaches out to youth on the margins of society, providing them with life-skills and a means to integrate with the mainstream. Our country has long had the advantage of a young population as a resource, but with more than 80% of these youth not competing school, we run the risk of regressing. In order to fully utilize this ‘Demographic Dividend’ the need of the hour is a skilled populace. We have been working towards this since 1998 and have touched the lives of over a million people. Through our 80 Out Reach Centers we conduct courses in Welding, Electrical Wireman, A/C Refrigeration, Motor Mechanic as also women-centric courses like Nursing, tailoring, beautician and fashion designing. We also conduct courses in basic English speaking and elementary computer skills. We also run Mobile Camps in tribal areas where we conduct short-term courses in welding, wireman and tailoring.
