Youth 4 Jobs Foundation (Y4JF) has over a decade of experience in market linked skilling of under-privileged youth. As part of the founding team of Employment Generation & Marketing Mission (EGMM) of Andhra Pradesh Govt. Employment Mission, they helped change the tone of the government skilling from training sake to market linked trainings for youth with placement. The disabled population in India is a group which receives limited assistance in molding them into independent individuals who are capable of being equally productive in their own way.

Axis Bank Foundation has partnered with Youth 4 Jobs Foundation to focus on enabling the People with Disabilities (PwDs) to avail of better livelihood opportunities by market linked trainings and placement support.

Y4JF conducts vocational training courses focused on soft skills, life skills, computer classes and Basic English speaking.
