Children at Shelter are counselled to educate ,trained in a skill and to aim to achieve a goal in their life. The job market is competitive and many youth are exploited because of their lack of knowledge, education and skills. Even though he may acquire the skill, a street youth/Ngo child may not find employment. The challenge is to match the needs for specific education, training and employment for this group of vulnerable youth.

Shelter Don Bosco aims to empower these youth by offering them career options, enhancing knowledge and skills with respect to job opportunities, enabling them to choose appropriate job training that will in turn lead to secure employment. Information on career opportunities will also be made available to personnel from NGOs and Community Based Organisations. Shelter Don Bosco Facilitates children with Career Counseling, Udaan- A National Career Mela, and A Career Expo for Marginalized Youth (Annual event), Chota Udaan(monthly) and have now launched a Career Market Place called Naukriadda- a platform where children from various ngos can acess the webpage for choosing career options suitable to their profile.
