Our Youth Care Programmes aim to equip young people with the skills and confidence they need for their independence. Generally, young people are transferred to Youth Care Programme at the age of 16 or after completing Grade X from their respective SOS Children’s Villages. In Youth Care, they receive food, accommodation, health support, and pursue higher secondary education or opt for vocational training programmes as per their interests and abilities. In every Youth Care Programme, we have dedicated counsellors who provide support and guidance needed to the young people. Counsellors help young people to identify their future goals, motivate and encourage them to create opportunities and prepare them for their independent life in society.
