Life-Skills facilitation at CAP Youth Empowerment Institute

CAP Youth Empowerment Institute integrates life skills training in its basic employability skills training of youth in all the centers it operates. The students at our centers are taken through life skills training as part of the course, and with time, they have learnt the impact of forming and maintaining peer groups among themselves. The peer groups are essential in for students in assisting each other in assignment and other class work, assisting each other in time of need (e.g. when sick) and checking on each other, and when they are working on assignment and during discussions.
