As our economy is changing it has become paramount to develop skills and promote the same. We here at AMICI disclose our love for variety of skills that today’s youth in our country can embrace. In the arena and time of ecommerce our youth can get into various streams that interests them. In our rapidly growing economy where requirement is countless for employees, people can get into web designing if they want to create or get into content writing if they have a flair for the same. A skill can be learnt and so is the basic meaning of this day is to promote learning and acquiring skills.
Not only on this day but promotion of acquiring skills should be promoted every day throughout the year. This recognition for the youth across the globe is acknowledged and has actually helped in changing or directing the mind of the youth in a particular direction. The idea is to help the youth indulge on a path that would later help them and the process of development which would help us at a universal level
