Youth is the period between childhood and adulthood, described as the period of physical and psychological development from the onset of puberty to maturity and early adulthood. Definitions of the specific age range that constitutes youth vary. An individual's actual maturity may not correspond to their chronological age, as immature individuals exist at all ages. This world is waiting for some good news for the development of youth society. So the youth development is needed at present time.
India has the largest number of youth who are the major strength and the future of the Navjivan Foundation. The country, with such a young force, has a huge possibility of growth. Almost two-third of India’s youth live in rural areas. Thus, it is necessary to reach out to them and make them literate and build the capacities for rural employability. The most of the volunteers from different part of country are youth mass.
These masses are taking good steps for awareness among the rural people and collect public grievances across the country. On the field of social, medical and legal way these youth mass satisfy their role. To develop the sense of national integration among youth has become the most important need of the country, as the youth have been misled by sectarian forces, fundamentalists & they have been misguided to involve in antisocial, anti-national activists and angering the unity & integrity of country. So many youth camps have organized by Navjivan Foundation on fight against this unsocial people and creating awareness on health and education etc. The rural youth were invited to participate in this camps & the respond is highly encouraging. Some eminent speakers were also invited to highlight the role for youth for nation building & national integration. Functionaries of Navjivan Foundation has also attended other so many programs organized by different organizations to encourage them.
Youth force in developing economy is found to be passive & inactive. Reasons of which is manifold. Technical training proved to be an agent of economic development and entrepreneurship, which is the need of the hour. Last year 65 youth members have taken vocational training on electronics, scientifically cultivation in agriculture field, tailoring has started their own units. This organization have an franchise computer institution running in Baruni, Begusarai, Bihar named with Lord Buddha Institute Of Computer Science and the institution has given franchise for public awareness and for education to youth for youth development. Lord Buddha Institute Of Computer science works with youth ages 14-23, both who are in Inter or school (matric pass) to Graduation.
We have designed programs that fit the schedules,needs of Indian rural youth. It is essential to understand that we do not have students at school. We are not a school. Rather, we have trainees who are engaged in a training curriculum. The reason that these distinctions are so crucial to our program is a pedagogical one. Our motto is Learning To Learn. To create confidence among women to mobilize the resource for families & social purpose Navjivan Foundation has under taken various workshop & training programme for generating income. To make the rural families self- sufficient & over come poverty some self help groups have been formed in different villages by organization. Some women have developed their independent entrepreneur of these groups.
Youth learn to solve their own problems, using the resources that are available to them--namely, other youth, the curriculum, books and the Internet and to helping them some instructur have appointed .This type of learning is contrary - to what our youth experience in their schooling. where pedagogically they have adopted stance of being filled up by an adult with answers. Navjivan Foundation “Lord Buddha Institute Of Computer science” seeks to break this learning model. It is our goal that a youth who has attended our program will be more independt in their learning and move forward with confidence in their future knowing that what they need to learn, they will be able to learn. 23, both who are in school and those who are not.
