According to government rules, orphans have to leave the orphanages after they are 18 years old. Their dreams remain unfulfilled as they step out into the world without any hope of support. They are forced by their circumstances to take up any kind of job they get in order to earn their living even though they would like to take up higher education . It is obvious that they are deprived of equal opportunities of education and employment.
The centre has extended a helping hand to such youth. The centre has 32 students ( 24 boys & 8 girls) and aims to extend its support to 100 orphan , needy students with education, lodging, employment, vocational skills through adopting their responsibility within next 3 year. We are trying to create 100 ROLE MODELS within next 5 years among orphan, deprived students. It will inspire other deprived students also to work for their better career & future.
‘Yuvaan’s Centre for Career Development’ is providing unemployed youth training & career guidance for employment in Government and Private sectors. Today 750+ youngsters have been already benefitted by the career guidance workshop & skill development training provided by the Centre and given their life a better direction. Last year, we have started “Competitive Exam Guidance Centre” with Library & Study Room facility also.
The library has number of latest & excellent books on all types of Competitive exams including UPSC, MPSC, Police, Railway, Bank recruitment etc with several magazines & newspapers also. We aim to give skill development training & employment to 500 unemployed youths & make 50 honest young officer & servant for Government system within next 4 years.
‘Yuvaan’ is building up the youth and inculcating in them social sensitivity, love for the country and a humane perspective without any kind of caste or religion based discrimination. The Yuvaan Movement is aimed at bringing about constructive change. Through this movement the youth are provided with opportunities to participate in the State and National level youth camps and contribute in various activities of social organisations as ‘Yuvaan’ volunteers.

I have completed my Diploma from Women’s Government Polytechnic, Latur with distinction. I was apprehensive whether I would be able to go on to procure a degree because of my critical family situation. The only option that I could see available to me was to take up a job to earn my living. At that point of time ‘Team Yuvaan’ extended a helping hand. They helped me to avail admission for further education at reputed Sanjeevani Engineering College, Kopergoan Dist. Ahmednagar.
I was facing many problems for my further education because I did not have any support after I left the govt. aided hostel after 10th. I was contemplating giving up my studies and earning my living. ‘Team Yuvaan ‘ lent me a helping hand at that juncture. I am now able to concentrate of my studies without worrying about other problems. It is my dream to be useful to my country after completing my ITI followed by private job.
I was raised in an orphage since I was a small child. I did not have any kind of support after I had to leave the orphanage according to the rules. Even though I was a National player, discrimination often left me disappointed. At that point of time , ‘Team Yuvaan’ extended their brotherly co-operation . They took up my responsibility. I have since then, again begun to dream about bringing glory to India’s name on an International level
I cant change my physical disability but I can change my attitude towards life. I have realized my strength with the help of Yuvaan. Now I believe in CHANCE & NOT in CHARITY. Yuvaan has given me that chance to prove myself. I have a very strong desire to become a honest govt. officer & to make a difference to my community.
