Upaya Partner since 2018
UpSkill Management Services is a social venture that provides vocational training to underprivileged youth to help them find lasting, dignified jobs. Through the training program, students learn the soft skills needed to find work that are not taught in schools. The venture aims to build a practical education system linked directly to the requirements of the industries it serves. To date, UpSkill has trained and placed 1,800 students.
UpSkill has also been the implementation partner for the Ministry of Minority Affairs and the Ministry of Rural Development, having trained close to 4,400 students under their skill development schemes.
In 2016, UpSkill launched a mobile app called NARAD that enables students, employers and trainers to communicate with each other seamlessly, optimizing the skilling life-cycle. More than 2,300 students have used the app for training and job placement. UpSkill aims to train close to 43.5 million youth in the next 10 years.
