Gurgaon’s poor youth to be taught job skills

Under the initiative, under-privileged youth will be trained and made employable.

Gurgaon Police launched a new initiative ‘UDAAN’, an employment-linked skill training programme, for underprivileged youth on Sunday. The initiative was formally inaugurated by the Director-General of Haryana Police Yashpal Singhal.

In his address, Singhal exhorted police officers to take the help of the community for effective policing. “It’s our duty to help the community and take their support to fight crime. Keep the community by your side for handling crime in an effective way,” the DGP said.

Under the initiative, under-privileged youth will be trained and made employable. As many as 60 youth will be trained in hospitality in the first batch of Udaan, he said. Those selected under this initiative will be taught life skills, soft skills, money management and art of living.

Once they complete their training, the youth will be given a government-approved certificate. The DGP said the training will be for two months and will be free of cost.
