World Youth Skills Day
15 th July, 2018
In 2014, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution announcing 15th July as World Youth Skills Day.
The main purpose is to achieve better economic conditions for today’s youth as a means of addressing the challenges of unemployment and under employment.
Not only this but also, the aim of World Youth Skills Day is to encourage youth to celebrate the value of developing skills like building, making, and creating as a way to achieve personal success and fulfillment.
Young people are almost three times more likely to be unemployed than adults and continuously exposed to lower quality of jobs. That is why education and training the keys to success in the workforce.
Skills development is a primary means of enabling young people to make a smooth transition to work. Skills and jobs for youth feature prominently in the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Celebrating the World Youth Skills Day 2018, Dorman Smith reaffirm its commitment to contributing to and developing young engineers and technicians for better tomorrow.
Last year we have launched “Dorman Smith Academy”, through which we conduct Industrial visits for students comprising seminars on pertinent Engineering topics and practical orientation sessions in our facility.
Industrial visits are a critical component of engineering undergraduate programs as they bridge the divide between theory and practice. They give students an exposure to current work practices, thus helping them connect theoretical concepts learnt in class to their practical applications.
