Employment skill training session for differently abled city youths today

VIJAYAWADA: In a bid to help the differently abled students acquire employment skills and to make them industry ready, Youth4Jobs, in association with Andhra Pradesh Information Technology Academy (APITA) and Axis Bank, will conduct a training session at the Manor Plaza here, on Friday.

About 40 companies will participate in the training programme, and companies, which have hired differently abled youths will share their experiences with others present on the occasion. This information was given by Gopal Garg, co-founder Youth4Jobs, in a press conference he addressed on Thursday.
In AP, differently-abled students are given training at Vijayawada, Rajahmundry, Visakhapatnam and Tirupati. Jobs are given to them, depending on the nature of their disabilities. Majority of them got placements at various MNCs in Hyderabad, Chennai and Bangalore. Around 300 differently abled students, in and around Vijayawada, were trained and placed in the past two-and-half years, he told the press.

Garg said that ‘college connect’, a job-oriented programme, was launched by Y4J to provide employment opportunities to students, after completion of their education. APITA additional CEO Winny Patro, manager Krishna Sharma and others were present in the press conference. For record, Y4J, which has a core philosophy of ‘empowerment through disability’, was established six years ago and according to Garg, had so far trained 12,000 differently abled youths at 22 training centres, in 12 states of the country.
