Due to limited vocational training options and lack of unbiased information, rural youth are often unable to choose the best available courses that can assure them entry into the private sector. CSO Partners seeks to facilitate access to information and resources to both the youth and corporates looking to source employees, through a "source-train-deploy" model. Compared to the conventional "hire and train" model, it would yield cost savings for employers while empowering youth to benefit from training, counseling and job placement services.
