Skills Refinement Programme (SRP) aims to equip the youth with theoretical knowledge, practical skills and a positive attitude to seek meaningful employment and take them towards self-sufficiency. Thus, the emphasis of the SEP is on enhancing the employability level through 6 segments:
- Computer literacy
- Veda Chanting
- Soft Skills
- Dance & music
- Sports & Games
At the Computer Centre students are introduced to the basics of computer literacy that lay a strong foundation to build higher level computer skills at a later stage in their professional lives. The focus of the curriculum is on learning practical computer skills along with a theory of computer science. The course that covers Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Internet is divided into two stages: the preparatory stage to ensure a gradual and thorough assimilation.
The Spoken English course aims to impart basic English language skills to support the youth in achieving their higher educational goals, equip them to do well in their future jobs and confidently converse in social situations. English is an interactive course with a bilingual and learner centric approach that focuses on learning the application of language tenets rather than assimilation of mere language concepts.
Sessions on Soft Skills conducted by corporate volunteers prepare the participants to confront the professional work place with the desired set of values, attitudes and behaviour. Sessions on grooming, goal setting and time management focus being to get them ready to take on the future with confidence.
Dance & Music
Students are trained in a dance form called Perani Lasyam. The Orphanage girls have pursued their Diploma and Degree in Dance and Music and are training around 50 children on their own.
The students are taught to memorize the Vedas using simpler methods like continuous word by word recitation . This enables the student to enhance memory power and concentration. It gives good health, peace of mind and pure joy.
The ultimate goal for SRP is to yield self-sufficient, compassionate and socially responsible youth, who are meaningfully employed.
