As new industries take shape to meet the evolving needs of mankind, there is a growing need for a workforce with different skill sets. Pharma, Hospitality, Food & Food Processing, Retail and Logistics, are just some of those sectors, where the need for this skilled workforce is fast growing.
To cater to these fields that have an immense potential to generate employment and to give the underprivileged youth a new platform to pursue their ambitions, Yashaswi Group started the Yashaswi Institute of Skill Development.
Similar in its philosophy to YIT, Yashaswi Institute of Skill Development (YISD) aims to train the youth in specific skill sets to cater to specific manpower needs in the above-mentioned sectors.


YISD has launched a skill development scheme that has been recognised as the Best Skill Development Initiative in India by the National Skill Development Corporation. Called the Learn & Earn Scheme (similar to the Learn & Earn run by YIT), it is affiliated to Maharashtra State Board of Technical Education.
Students who qualify certain eligibility criteria are given on-the-job training with a specific industry partner. While students are paid stipends, at the end of the training module, the industry gets skilled professionals for the Food & Food Processing, Pharma, Logistics and Hospitality segments.
In 2010, the Government of Maharashtra approved Learn & Earn as India’s first skilling scheme initiated by a private institute.
