BFGI Dedicates Year-2011 To "Youth Development"

The chief objective of education is overall development of a student and helping him to be good citizen. Realizing its social and moral responsibility BFGI has always been making earnest efforts to provide the students with affordable and quality education. The campus has made it a tradition that every year is dedicated to an important cause. Year 2009 was dedicated to 'social service' while year 2010 to 'placements'. About a dozen placement activities in the form of job fairs were organized in which more than 50 MNCs offered jobs to 1350 students.
Baba Farid Group of Institutions strongly believes that youth is the source of energy and endorsing its view dedicated year 2011 to 'Youth Development'. The group will work for creation of adequate environment and providing necessary infrastructure to youth so that their constructive power might be encouraged and developed. This also includes developing of skills and abilities. The programme of youth development concentrates on following areas.
Social values: 

Present paid education system does not work for developing youth to good citizen & noble human being. Social values are too much extent absent so BFGI will endeavor for creating and developing social values in youth. Awareness camps will be organized. People will be made aware about social evils, Environment pollution, Dowry, Female Foeticide and Drugs etc. They will also be motivated for donating blood. To bring good and progressive literature to the young a mobile library has also been established.
A step further the group is also going to introduce social service as part of syllabus. To encourage the students for participating in social welfare activities. They will be awarded role of honour as well as college color. Along with this they will get same due on academic level also.

Soft Skill and Technical specialization: 
Today students have got only certificates but not soft and technical skills. Hence they are unable to make a niche in the corporate section. The little of skills given today are not up to the mark. So soft skills and technical training set a primary place in the syllabus. Both long term and short term certificate courses will be started. They will run in morning as well as evening sessions.

Research and Development: 

Students only aim at passing exam and are limited to get bookish knowledge. As a result need for research does not develop and they are unable to become researcher and thinkers. BFGI will establish high level research labs to promote research activities. It will provide opportunities to students in different fields of research. For this an Innovation Centre with international level facilities is going to be established very soon. This centre will be supported by companies of international fame and having high level technical efficiency. Centre will also be helpful for getting “Patents and IPR (Intellectual Property Rights) All this is to develop positive attitude and logical thinking in youth.

Placement Activities: 

Malwa region has been lagging behind in the field of getting good placements. The group has decided to remove this stigma. In the year 2011 the objective for placement is fixed at 5000. 'Mega Job Fairs' will be organized in April and June. Beside these placements drives will also be conducted every month. These opportunities are provided to students free of cost.
To accomplish the above task BFGI will guide and help beside providing them with opportunities efforts will concentrate on the basic 3 elements. Punctuality, Transparency and Use of Technology. Harmonious combination of these is necessary for both in public and private sectors. The group solicits society's cooperation and constructive suggestions and appeals to the youth to benefit themselves by the resources and opportunities provided by the campus so that a healthy society might be created.
