About Us

Youth Rocks Foundation (YRF) is the brain child of Dr.Divya Negi Ghai. After spending a decade amongst young minds, teaching and inspiring them through school and college, she realized that her true passion lies in working with young minds beyond classrooms. She noticed a huge gap in the traditional way schools and colleges prepare their students and the way modern industry expects them to be prepared. She noticed that academic accomplishments are only a small part of students’ complete personality. There are many other skills that go unnoticed but play a defining role in their long term personal and professional success in life. These are:

  • Good common sense
  • A deep sense of organization and efficiency
  • Resourcefulness
  • Basic financial management
  • Strong time management skills
  • Creative problem solving
  • Excellent communication skills/salesmanship
  • Technical competency
  • Continuous drive for improvement
  • Quantitative skills
  • Listening skills
  • Negotiation skills
  • Leadership skills
  • Diplomacy
  • Patience
  • Adaptability
  • Inquisitive mind
  • Continuous desire to learn
  • Values and Ethics
  • Passion for performance
  • Emotional management

Our Story

Without a proper blend of these skills, the person will be less efficient and of less use to the family, employer and society, if at all he/she gets employed. For long term personal and professional success, these skills have to be excelled. But students are often left on-their-own for nurturing these skills. Their peer group, teachers or parents are not in a position to guide or train them. Short term remedies like Personality Development and Placement (PDP) workshops or seminars do not have any long term impact either.

 

We are trying our best to provide continuous support to the students in the form of our dynamic network where professionals from the industry and alumni; teachers; parents and students are the four integral pillars. 

Students will be participating in a life-long improvement program resulting in success and happiness.

 

Every individual and organization needs to be a part of this mission for youth empowerment.

Notably, according to the latest UN Report 2015, with 356 million 10-24 year olds constituting 28% of the country’s population, India boasts the largest youth population in the world. Our youth needs to be focused, productive and happy in order to ensure that we prosper as a country. This reason is strong enough to help the cause.
