JAN SHIKSHAN SANSTHAN
The Scheme of Jan Shikshan Sansthan (JSS), formerly known as Shramik Vidyapeeth is being implemented through NGOs in the country since March 1967. With the transformation in the economic and social setup over the years, the focus of Shramik Vidyapeeth (SVP) was shifted from industrial workers in urban areas to the non-literates, neo-literates, unskilled and unemployed youth particularly from SC/ST/OBC/Minority/Divyang/Women throughout the country especially to underprivileged people in the rural areas. The SVPs were accordingly renamed as Jan Shikshan Sansthan (JSS) w.e.f. the year 2000. The scheme of Jan Shikshan Sansthan was consequently transferred to the Ministry of Skill Development and Entrepreneurship (MSDE) in July 2018.
Prime Focus of Jan Shikshan Sansthan:
Jan Shikshan Sansthan`s are conceived as institutes for conducting skill up-gradation programme in Non-formal mode in rural and urban slums of a district while also providing academic and technical support to its target group.
