In its attempt to encourage Mizo youths to opt for Indian civil services examinations and to garner necessary study materials and technical know-how, the Mizoram Youth Commission (MYC) has signed a deal with India’s leading coaching centre Alternative Learning Systems (ALS).
Joseph Lalhimpuia, chairman of Mizoram Youth Commission said that despite being a poorer state, Mizoram has invested huge amount of money for the future of Mizo youths.
“To compete with students from much advanced states, youth of Mizoram needs study materials and other technical knowhow. Under the MYC’s initiatives, Mizo youths will be trained under the Alternative Learning Systems’ format and syllabi. For this the commission has invested Rs. 1.3 crore to create a path for Mizo youths in their attempt to clear UPSC, IIT-JEE/NEET exams,” Joseph Lalhimpuia said.
“It’s a win win situation for both the parties, ALS, on seeing the lack of infrastructure for UPSC and other central services aspirants, has doled out Rs. 32 lakhs for class rooms and online coaching centres,” Joseph Lalhimpuia added.
Of late, Mizoram Youth Commission is coming with numerous innovative approaches to promote youths of Mizoram.
Recently a gala of recognition of successful Mizo youths was organised in Aizawl, successful Mizo youths were felicitated with awareness stunt to encourage younger generations that hard work pays.
