Tata STRIVE was launched to address the pressing national need of skilling India's youth for employment, entrepreneurship and community enterprise. It aims at creating training capacity in select sectors and trades along with appropriate certification and measurement of outcomes. It is aligned with the 25 sectors of focus identified by the Union Government as well as skill gaps identified by the National Skill Development Corporation.
The Need of the Hour
As per the 11th Five year plan published by the Indian Government there will be a shortage of 55 million skilled workers in 2022 in the rest of the world, whereas India will have a surplus of 47 million skilled workers.

The Genesis
Tata STRIVE, an initiative of Tata Community Initiatives Trust and part of the Group CSR programmes on Skill Development, addresses the pressing need of skilling India's youth for employment, entrepreneurship and community enterprise.
It reaches to communities, develops skills of people from financially challenged backgrounds and acclimatizes them with the changing work environment. The core philosophy is to create courses that would help in creating and supplying trained manpower across the entire industrial spectrum as well as develop entrepreneurial talent.
Mission: To build capacity to train youth for employment, entrepreneurship and community enterprise.
Model
In order to build skilling capacity Tata STRIVE is working on a two pronged approach
BUILDING TATA STRIVE SKILL DEVELOPMENT CENTERS (TSSDCS) IN DIFFERENT PARTS OF INDIA BY UTILISING THE INFRASTRUCTURE AVAILABLE WITH GROUP COMPANIES
WORKING WITH PARTNER CENTRES (GOVERNMENT, NGOS, CORPORATES) AND HELPING THEM SCALE-UP THEIR TRAINING CAPACITY AND CAPABILITY
Empowering youth with the right skills can define the future of the country. Tata group as an industry leader is well placed to build a technology based scalable model for skilling, with a focus on quality of training leading to employability of youth.

S Ramadorai | Chairman, National Skill Development Agency & National Skill Development Corporation
The Tata group is committed to enhancing the quality of life of the communities it serves. In line with this commitment, Tata STRIVE, will leverage synergies across group companies, to develop and implement industry relevant skilling initiatives for the youth and disadvantaged communities.
Dr. Mukund Rajan | Chairman, Tata Global Sustainability Council
Fuelling the aspirations of the youth across India, Tata STRIVE draws upon the technological competencies and infrastructure of various Tata group companies, and other partners, with the collective mission of building capacity to train the youth of India. The sprawling skill development centre at Aligarh is a great example of the power of such collaboration.
