Unemployment and lack of relevant life skills are some of the key issues that our programs for youth address. We provide skills training so young people can confidently enter the world of employment and mature adulthood, helping them develop emotional resilience and express emotions in ways that foster positive relationships. Unemployed youth learn vocational skills in fields such as tourism, heavy machinery, graphic design, hotel management and nursing to make it easier for them to find jobs in Sri Lanka. A soft-skills program, providing training in leadership and communications, supports youth by instilling confidence to face interviews and work in a formal office environment. Workshops, camps and training sessions improve their skills and knowledge in community mobilization, team activity, proposal writing, career visioning, cash management, sexual and reproductive health, and awareness of the risks of alcohol.
