- Skill Development:
To provide industrial training to youths, BJUP is running the Devendar Industrial Training Institute (DITI) in Biharsharif. This institute is running with the affiliation from NCVT, New Delhi. This is very effective institute for youths. After completing their course / training youths are getting engaged in employment generation activities or in livelihood promotion activities. Devendar ITI got recognition from NCVT, New Delhi in the year of 2010 and its session started from July 2011. It is very pertinent to mention here that it is named after the founder General Secretary Late Mr. Devendar Prashad Singh, who sacrificed his life for the social cause. One of his main aims was to generate employment opportunities for the rural youths. To realize his noble dream and aim, this ITI was established in Goshrawan village of Giriyak Block. It provides training to the youths to become electrician and fitter. Apart from the courses on industrial training, we also impart free of charge computer education to the enrolled youths in the institute. In this financial year 55 students were enrolled in the institute. Majority of students belong to SC and OBC communities. After successfully completing, their training majority of youths got jobs in various government as well as private firms. The Center has overall 32 staffs out of which 15 are Trade specific skilled trainers and 17 are support staffs for efficiently managing the institute.
