vision

At the heart of Meghalaya’s youth development strategy is the belief that youth engagement, aspiration-building and self-efficacy nurtured through personal development and talent recognition interventions are indispensable to the State’s efforts in significantly improving youth potential and employability.

While the vision of the government is to nurture a skill and talent for all youth and ensure that every youth has access to livelihood opportunities, it is important that we first identify their innate capabilities so we can align their aspirations with skilling opportunities that are relevant. The foundational soft skills and talent recognition modules under Aspire Meghalaya will lay the groundwork for further endeavours by the State Government to support the skilling needs of our youth communities across Districts. The programmes are expected to help them explore career paths for themselves and identify the skills they need to access these careers. The modules are carefully curated to equip young adults across the State with the skillsets they need to build wholesome lives and to transform their innate talents into career-worthy assets.

soft skills & life skills training

The Youth Survey will culminate in the identification, selection and enrolment of 10,000 youths across 60 campuses in 12 districts of the state for high-impact Soft Skills training and Personal Growth interventions. The objective of this phase is to equip young adults with the common minimum skills needed to thrive in life in any domain. The modules are designed to instil Confidence, Communication Skills, Human Values, Critical Thinking, Talent Recognition and Emotional Wellbeing.

Basic career exploration modules are curated to encourage youth to choose career paths linked to personal strengths and aptitude. This will in turn lead to the emergence of demand-driven skilling requirements and provide the government with much-needed insights to formulate skilling interventions and mentorship opportunities that are driven by the aspirations of our youth, governed by the grassroot narrative.
