SPEC INDIA contributed to the first faculty Chair-"The SPEC-AMA Chair for Youth Empowerment" at Ahmedabad Management Association, Ahmedabad, initiating the 'Life Skills Programme' and the 'Youth Empowerment Programme'. Life Skills Programme caters to 10+2 students while the Youth Empowerment Programme is meant for graduate and undergraduate students. These programmes provide valuable inputs in developing a right attitude and behaviour, manners and etiquettes, learning habits and individual personality. Youth Empowerment programme also provides necessary guidance for taking care of adjustment problems in the beginning of one's career.
Indian economy is growing at an unprecedented pace and opportunities are global. This growth phase is opening up many career options. Making a right choice at this stage is crucial for long-term success. Unlike in the past, a large number of career options are available today. Instead of a lack of information, we have an information explosion. This makes decision-making extremely complex and difficult for today's youth.
Keeping the above in mind, SPEC INDIA-AMA Counseling Centre was created primarily to cater and augment this complexity. The key objective being able to provide an opportunity to our youth to widen their outlook and develop different skills and opt for a career such as to take on future challenges. Under the programme young people, students, graduates and working executives get the desired guidance in making a right career choice. SPEC INDIA-AMA Counseling Centre will also take up counseling on behavioral issues amongst students, executives, managers, parents and couples.
The SPEC INDIA-AMA Chair for Youth Empowerment has gone places since its inception 5 years ago. The program is now regularly conducted all across Gujarat in approximately 60 schools, colleges and institutions. An impressive number of nearly 10,000 individuals have benefitted from the SPEC-AMA endeavour.
