Lighthouse Program

IDFC FIRST Bank in partnership with Pune City Connect supports sustainable livelihood program that runs through physical centers called 'Lighthouses'. Youth from slum communities in and around Aundh Pune are skilled in the lighthouse and placed at the completion of the course. These centers are run in partnership with non-profit- Pune City Connect and Pune Municipal Corporation. We have trained 650 young adults since the commencement of this program in 2017.

The program plays out in stages, with modules designed to include technology, music and art to ensure youth enjoy the transformative journey of self-discovery.
The entire program is divided into two parts, first one being the foundation course of 40-50 hours which is followed by one to one counselling and market exploration session. The second part is the skilling program which trains the student in their chosen area of vocation. After the training, the trainees are encouraged to take up placements or start their entrepreneurial journey or pursue higher education as the case may be.
