Under the Jesuit collective’s flagship skill development programme JesuiTec, we equip school dropouts and unemployed youth with relevant skills so that they can integrate into the mainstream workforce. Among its components are Industrial Training Institutes (ITIs), Vocational Training Institutes (VTIs), Community Colleges (CCs), and short-term training programmes for the unemployed. As a result of our intense collaboration with local communities as well as partnerships with like-minded groups and other non-governmental organizations, we are developing sustainable pathways specifically for disadvantaged communities. In addition to skill-building programmes, our curriculum supports the ‘Make in India’ initiative and the ‘Skill India’ programme.

Through a network of 29 technical institutes and 253 community colleges, the JesuiTec Network educates youth in 18 states. Every year, it educates around 125,000 youth.

With strong links to the industry, JesuiTec is able to provide young people trained in its institutes with industrial exposure and placement opportunities. Some of the major centers are Loyola Vocational Institute, New Delhi, V-Care, Jahangirpuri, New Delhi. Ashadeep Community College, Bihar, Xavier Technical Institute, Sevasi, Gujarat, Xavier ITI, Srirampur, Maharashtra and St. Joseph’s Technical Institute, Pune, Maharashtra.


Skills development is essential for improving employability, income growth, and poverty reduction. Sustainable development depends on the availability of skilled and healthy human resources. Due to a shortage of formally trained and skilled human resource, India faces substantial unemployment and underemployment. Manufacturing and industrial sectors in the country are plagued by a low-skilled workforce. There is an urgent need to bridge the skills gap between those trained and those absorbed by the industry and to make youths job-ready through formal skilling courses. 


 Skilled and empowered youth for transformation


Promoting integral training and accompaniment of the underprivileged youth through innovative, qualitative and value based technical and soft skills for employment, empowerment and transformation in collaboration and networking with other institutions, industries and other stakeholders


    • Equipping the unskilled youth with employable skills and knowledge, so they can reap the demographic dividend and contribute substantively to the growth and development of the country. 
    • JesuiTec focuses on skilling, re-skilling and up-skilling youth, including those from underprivileged sections of society, to bridge the gap between needed and available talent. 
    • By educating underprivileged youth holistically and skillfully, we help them become not only employable, but also transformative. 
    • Ensure dignified livelihood through skill training, career counseling, personality development, and youth development programs that nurture youth as agents of social change. 
  • Providing a uniform skill training curriculum and programme to all our skill centers and setting a new benchmark for training across the country.


We have developed a robust, adaptable, and output-oriented model that leads the industry. Our intervention takes place in three phases:

First phase

Determine the needs and requirements of the industry.

Second phase

Training of trainers to impart the best possible coaching.

Third phase

Youth placement and establishing new networks within firms through alumni.
