TRAINING & DEVELOPMENT CENTERS INDIA
“The lifting of the lockdowns, starting in June 2020, breathed a new energy into the teams of Youth and Catalysts, who were keen to get to work and resume their activities.
There are multiple new projects, and more and more Youth are achieving professional integration. New Catalysts joined us in the field starting in October, bringing their enthusiasm and helping to stabilize and strengthen the existing positive energy. 2020 demonstrated that out of crisis opportunities emerge that are just waiting to be seized: digital development, adapted pedagogy, recruitment of local Catalysts ... We are all ready to meet the challenges of 2021!”

SANGAM VIHAR - DELHI
The center in Sangam Vihar, a very deprived area in South Delhi, hosts two teams, 95% of whose members are young women.
After the center became a Training & Development Center in 2020 and a study of local needs was carried out within the local community, the Khazana micro-activity became Train 4 Change. Twice a week, the Young people offer English workshops and digital training to the local community.
Sangam Vihar was the very first center to implement the weekly use of Digital Inc. (see p.26) and the Youth were involved in refining LP4Y’s digital pedagogy through role-play and giving regular feedback.
In July 2020, the French Ambassador to India paid an official visit to the center. The Youth were able to show him the site, the pedagogy and their activity.
For 2021, the focus is on developing and diversifying these training courses for the community. The Youth are divided into project teams and work on developing English and digital training content. To strengthen this process, a digital “talent week” (a week spent working in collaboration with the employees of a partner company) has been organized with teams from General Electric. The goal is for Youth and professionals to work together, creating content that will be used for all the activities provided in the TDCs: English, IT, employment support, professional presentation, Résumé writing, health, etc.

I am very glad to say I am a Youth of LP4Y. Dream are important for everyone because they give purpose, direction and meaning to your life. Personaly I learned this during my training sessions in LP4Y. There are many moments I will never forget, especially the gala project because it is the biggest event of the LP4Y and it was a great moment for me too. I learned a lot from here, I got a chance to do an Intership in a major international company (EY, Ernest and Young). Changing my life has been possible thanks to my determination, dedication, my Coachs, all the Catalysts support, guidence and hard work. Thank you LP4Y!
KANNAGI NAGAR - CHENNAI
In the heart of Kannagi Nagar, a slum relocation area in the city of Chennai that is home to more than 150,000 inhabitants, the center hosts 2 teams, 95% of whose members are Young women.
The Training & Development Center was one of the few centers that maintained face-to-face contact with small groups of Youth throughout the year. The Youth carried out a study on the local health situation and actively contributed to supplying food and sharing information about the pandemic.
The sports field and the Little Angels Academy have been renovated and professionalized.
Through the management of the MEI Move 4 Change, the Youth develop their skills in project management, events, communication, etc. Together, they educate their community on the values of sport, mobilizing with the organization of weekly practice sessions (yoga, Zumba and badminton) as well as the occasional football or basketball tournament. They are also developing tools that promote the benefits of regular physical activity.
