Youth unemployment in India shows a gripping reality with more than one-third of employers identifying skills shortages as a major constraint. Today more than ever, increasing the employability of youth in India is much needed. This requires a new vision for education, innovation and entrepreneurship. This was the objective of our 3-day workshop for 3rd year ECE students on "21st-century employability skills". TASK trainer Shernik Surana discussed on identifying concrete solutions that can help youth connect to jobs, start new businesses, and build their skills. Students who attended the workshop enhanced their personal skills and other professional interviewing and presentation skills. Trainers of the workshop revisited the changes in educational systems of recent times and curricula in order to build 21st Century Skills, through an education that encourages critical thinking and strategic planning, and provides students with career guidance to match the private sector’s needs. The workshop provided students with the importance of opportunities like volunteer internships, mentoring, and training on entrepreneurial skills. The attendees discussed the importance of access to quality education for all, mainstreaming this quality education across one country, and involving rural and/or underprivileged areas as a necessary step for youth employment. The workshop helped young students to ignite their spirit of enhancing their skills & helped them focus on the need to create their own startups regionally in Kakatiya region and beyond to serve the communities around. This workshop introduced the meaning of employability skills to participants, established a link between skills needed in the job market and skills developed through volunteering, and supported students in identifying the recognition of these skills.
