    SLCs are co-located in government spaces such as local schools, and Panchayat buildings, and are run in close collaboration with the local community. Each SLC can accommodate 25-30 girls.


    Currently, YouthInvest runs 10 SLCs in Jharkhand and 2 in West Bengal.

    SLC curriculum

    At YouthInvest, we believe along with formal academic training, a strong emphasis on enabling girls to develop a wider awareness of themselves and the external context in which they live is vital for nurturing capable, confident girls.


    SLCs follow an integrated curriculum that provides the girls with an opportunity to develop an awareness of their social situation, gain confidence and self-esteem so that they can understand and address the multiple challenges life throws in and chart their destiny.
