Between 1997 and 2017, the young population increased by 139 million, and the population of the young labour force declined to 58.7 million. Worldwide, one out of five people is not in employment, education, and training. Among these, the number of women is considerably huge. This is where World Youth Skills Day comes into the spotlight. The Directorate of Alumni Affairs is organising an Alumni Talk on My Skill, My Power to discuss the pertinence of competitive skills so as to meet the standards of the constantly advancing job market.
Date: July 15, 2022
Time: 4.00 pm to 5.00 pm
World Youth Skills Day spreads the significance of vocational educational training and developing other skills relevant to local and global economies. The day also highlights skilled youth’s role in addressing current and future global challenges. The Alumni talk features four students from the class of 2021 namely, Yoganand, Bismark Razak Haruna, Aaditya jain, and Adam Wumbila who have already figured out how to channel their fervour for a vibrant tomorrow.
Let’s celebrate the importance of arming the youth with skills for employment, decent work, and entrepreneurship.
