Working youth has important implications for future economic growth, stability, and development of any country. Globally many graduates do not have job opportunities after their graduation due to multiple reasons including lack of adequate skills, underground economy, hysteresis, and minimum wages. Serious social repercussions and unrest are caused by potential youth unemployment. It is the need of the hour to provide youth with technology; training as a part of the educational curriculum.
