Young people spend much of their time in educational institutes, and their experiences there can have huge impact in shaping their life and developmental phase. However, not all young people have access and opportunities to indulge in education or choose the career of their interest due to various socio-economic factors. The disparities in educational access and quality becomes barriers for youth development. Today, the transition from school to work is not easy for many youths, instead it becomes a period of uncertainty, frustration and social questioning. It is high time to incorporate and create learning spaces which can facilitate awareness on sustainable development. At CODOTS, we focus on two important targets of Sustainable Development Goal 4: Quality Education:
- Education for sustainable development and global citizenship
- Enhancing the skills, including technical and vocational skills, for employment, decent jobs and entrepreneurship
Our aim is to provide assistance and services in sensitizing young people on the aspects of sustainable development and social-emotional well-being-oriented career development, so young people can have access to opportunities, exercise the freedom of choice and use their potentials effectively.
