Youth Employability
Education plays a significant role in the empowerment of young people in all income brackets, from poverty-stricken to affluent. Education can open up better economic opportunities for them, improve the quality of their lives, and empower them to make the world a better place for others in their sphere of influence. There are underprivileged young adults who aren't able to attend college because they are too busy working for livelihood, taking care of disabled parents or helping their parents care for younger siblings or sometimes School dropouts for low economic conditions. Online education is particularly useful for inspiring youth and drop-outs to achieve these benefits. E-Learning can help students transcend the limitations of their geographic locations, conquer their financial difficulties, overcome time constraints, solve their problems and better their lives in every imaginable way, given an opportunity and minimum guidance, Mentors at disengaged youth programs and dropouts. Disengaged youths can also benefit from the flexibility that online learning offers. E-Learning can provide opportunities for young adults who are recovering alcoholics, drug addicts or high school dropouts.
