Bright Future empowers youth to make informed decisions about their career and thus enables them to transform their passion into gainful employment through life skills development, career development, mentoring support, internships and placement opportunities.
Bright Future also builds capacities of key stakeholders like parents and schools who play an instrumental role in creating a conducive environment for enabling youth to take informed decisions independently pertaining to their career and life.
According to a study which was conducted in February 2009 by New Resolution India in the South Mumbai’s urban communities on the problem of Aimless Education in society following issues were observed.
