A project to survey unemployed and non-formally educated youth across the country has been undertaken by the Union Ministry of Youth and Sports. According to the instructions of the central government, this survey will be conducted through the National Service Scheme (RASEO) of Savitribai Phule Pune University, and according to its report, the future direction of this project will be determined.
An initiative has been taken to survey the unemployed youth as well as the youth deprived of skills due to lack of education. This will include volunteers from ‘Raseyo’ affiliated colleges. Through these volunteers, regular programs and special camps will be conducted in the adopted villages during the initiative. Also, applications will be filled from youths who have no formal education and are not employed in the respective villages. This application will be submitted to the Ministry of Youth and Sports of the Union Government. The information was given through the ‘Raseo’ department that the central government has taken this step as a solution to the unemployment that has increased in the last few years.
Workshop in Nashik on Thursday
A district-wise training workshop will be conducted by the university on how to conduct this survey, and a workshop will be held at KSKW College of ‘Mavipra’ Samaj Sanstha in Nashik on April 13. Like Nashik district, workshops will be held for Pune and Nagar districts on April 11 and 12 respectively. According to the guidance given in these training workshops, the survey will be completed in the three districts of Nashik, Pune and Nagar by April 30 through the ‘Raseo’ department of the university. According to this, there is a possibility that skill-based training will be organized for the concerned unemployed and non-formally educated youth after collecting the information from the central government.
This survey undertaken by the central government is very important. This is the beginning of an important project aimed at reducing unemployment. Attendance of University ‘Raseyo’ Program Officers is mandatory for this training programme.
