Youth unemployment is becoming a serious concern in India. The country’s young population is lacking the opportunity to reach their full potential, as the number of jobs are also dwindling. In India, we have a very large population of young people as well as adolescents. Younger generations in rural communities are struggling to make an income and have a stable career. Many may go on to finish college or other higher education programs with limited access to jobs that require such degree, certificates & diploma, due to their studies lacking specialized skill sets and learning outcomes.
