Voices is a nationwide engagement with young people, parents, and teachers to capture their insights on life skills. Life Skills Collaborative (LSC) is striving to understand the needs and aspirations of these stakeholders. And, invite their input to bring this important voice into the conversation on life skills. Through the Voices initiative, LSC aims to inform and drive the integration of life skills within public education systems and support government engagement and action.
We believe these answers will provide essential inputs to the policy, intervention, and activities that have been planned by various stakeholders. These inputs will be helpful not only for the government bodies but also be instrumental in informing the civil society organisations on their approach to life skills. With the Voices initiative, our focus is to help contextualise life skills in India. And, bring the conversation on the importance of life skills to the stakeholders who are the end beneficiaries of these interventions.
WHAT LSC intends to achieve
In 2021-22, Life Skills Collaborative collected inputs from 26,000 stakeholders across 11 states in 7 languages. We collected inputs from adolescents, youth, parents and teachers on how they understand and describe life skills and what skills are considered important in life.

Voices Year 1 Insights
THE WAY FORWARD
LSC is collecting inputs from more stakeholders to enhance the insights emerging from our Year 1 exercise and we are inviting organisations championing the cause of life skills for young people in India to be a part of the Voices exercise. They would be able to share the perspectives of young people, parents, and teachers.
If you are currently working with these stakeholders and are interested in collecting inputs for the LSC Voices exercise, please write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
