ASSIST focusses on strategies that strengthen youth, the most dynamic and vibrant segment of the population. This 'demographic dividend' needs to be captured with appropriate education, skills, health awareness and other enablers to enhance the development of citizenship and productiveness as they move into adulthood.

'Explorer for integration youth program' is concerned with enabling youth to acquire knowledge, skills and techniques which will help them in developing themselves as a productive workforce through better employability and entrepreneurship trainings. Further it fosters initiatives for unfolding the potential of youth through a constant process of self-evaluation and self-exploration.

It catered to needs of 424 youth in the age-group of 15-29 years. The target groups identified are (i) Student Youth (ii) Migrant Youth (iii) Rural Youth (iv) Tribal Youth (v) Youth At Risk (vi) Youth in violent conflicts (vii) out of school/dropouts (viii) groups with social /moral stigma (ix) Youth in Institutional Care, Young women, Youth belonging to socially and economically disadvantaged communities /groups through 7 Vocational Training Centers.

Partnership with Quest Alliance in the implementation of the "Skills to Succeed" has enabled ASSIST to harness the demographic dividend and transform them as the key agents for social change, economic development and technological innovation. Various activities were conducted to help them to explore the layers of the society as roots in search for nourishment by triggering their imagination, ideals, considerable energies and vision which proved to be essential for the continuing development of the societies in which they live.

Parents and the communities were actively engaged during the process of mobilization, placement and growth tracking venture which ensured the commitment of the adults to all-round development of the youth so that they can realize their full potential and contribute productively to nation-building process.
