Those between ages 18 -28, who although having completed school education and have no possibility for higher education, but yet in need of productively shaping their young lives for the benefit of the country, and have been selected as trainees to follow the basic course designed for them at the National Youth Corps Centres, are recipients of a Rs 3000 allowance from the government. Further, while they are also eligible to receive the Personality Development Training Certificate at the completion of the Basic Course, in parallel the NVQ 1 Certificate is also available.
In addition, as per their vocational aptitudes, they are directed towards state and private enterprises for requisite vocational training. Moreover, the youth who undergo such vocation training are paid an allowance of no more than Rs 10,000 by the government during such training. Furthermore, while the responsibility of finding employment for them fall on the shoulders of those institutions that provided the training, at least 70 % of those thus trained are invariably found employment by those institutions. There are 25 areas where the youth consequently have been provided with employment. The National Youth Corps, throughout the year conducts Individual Achievement & Leadership Training for staff of external institutions as well as for school leaders.
In addition, the National Youth Corps Training boasts of an excellent performance record of consistent Community Development programmes as well as projects engaged in strengthening peaceful co-existence between communities throughout the year. Further, bringing together trainees with aesthetic talents, the National Youth Corps is currently successfully assembling a unique National Youth Choir.
