Welcome to Prayatna, where we believe in empowering individuals with special needs by providing them with comprehensive pre-vocational and vocational training programs. Vulnerable young adults, especially those with disabilities have long been on the periphery of mainstream society. For many young adults with special needs, finding suitable employment opportunities and acquiring necessary training can be a challenging journey. We understand these difficulties and have tailored a curriculum specifically designed to address these challenges.
Empowering Young Adults with Special Needs: Bridging the Gap Between Training and Employment
Navigating the job market is often daunting for young adults with special needs. Despite their potential and eagerness to contribute, they encounter barriers due to various reasons such as:
- Lack of Tailored Training: Conventional training programs might not cater to their specific needs and abilities.
- Limited Job Opportunities: Access to meaningful employment opportunities that accommodate their skills can be scarce.
- Societal Misconceptions: Prejudices and misconceptions about their capabilities hinder their prospects in the job market.
In India, young adults with special needs are currently seen in sheltered workshops. However this is not an employment model as they barely get a small stipend which is not sufficient to meet even their own basic needs. Less than 5% of young adults with disabilities are employed in the open or supported workforce.
At Prayatna, we bridge this gap by offering specialized training programs that are meticulously crafted to cater to the diverse abilities and needs of individuals with special needs. Our curriculum is designed to impart:
- Pre-Vocational Skills: Fundamental skills necessary for the workplace, such as communication, time management, teamwork, and problem-solving.
- Vocational Training: Industry-specific training in various fields, preparing individuals for roles in retail, hospitality, customer service, and more.
- Assured Paid Internships: Partnering with multinational brands, we secure paid internships post-training, providing practical, real-world experience..
