Guwahati, Oct. 1. Yamaha inaugurated its first Yamaha Technical School in the North East region at Don Bosco Technical School, Maligaon in Guwahati, on 26th September, 2014. As part of its CSR initiative, Yamaha will impart technical training to the underprivileged youth for a secure future and assist them in final job placements at its dealerships in the city.
India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd, marked the inauguration of its first Yamaha Technical School (YTS) in the North East region of India at the premises of Don Bosco Technical School (DBTS), Maligaon, Guwahati on 26th September, 2014 to promote and encourage the economically weaker youth to become self-reliant.

The Don Bosco -Yamaha Technical School aims to create a 'Centre of Excellence' where the youth will receive 2-wheeler technical training that will enable them to become expert 2-wheeler technicians. Thereafter, they could be employed gainfully at Yamaha Dealerships and become productive members of the society. Technical experts from Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. are conducting the YTS program on behalf of India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd.

The YTS center was formally inaugurated by Mr. Masaki Asano, MD, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. along with Fr. VM. Thomas, the Salesian Provincial, Guwahati. With a short prayer and cutting of the ribbon the centre was inaugurated and blessed by Don Bosco group represented by Fr. VM Thomas and Fr. Benny Alex, Director of Don Bosco, Maligaon and Yamaha group officials from the headquarters, at 10.30 am on 26th September 2014. The event was also coloured with a beautiful cultural programme put up by the students of Technical School.  

Inaugurating the school Mr. Asano said,''At present, there is a huge skills gap in the industry as it heads toward an expansion drive. On the other hand, a large number of unskilled youth are pushed towards unemployment which is a hindrance to any nation's development. This partnership is meant to address this very concern by providing a platform to the economically weaker and unemployed youth to obtain a job oriented technical training in two-wheeler repair and servicing that meets industry standards. Upon successful completion of the course, the students will receive a certification by Yamaha Technical Academy at Silver level and Don Bosco Technical School Maligaon, that will help them to find a suitable employment.''

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Ravinder Singh, Vice President, Strategy and Planning, Yamaha Motor India Sales Pvt. Ltd. said ''As a recognized considerate industry player, we shoulder the responsibility to empower the economically weaker sections of the society especially the youth. We have incorporated many programs in our annual calendar to make a lasting impact on the lives of these young people by making them self-reliant. We signed an MoU with Don Bosco Technical School, Maligaon, Guwahati in August 2014 to develop a synergetic partnership and thereby helping deserving students find employment in the automobile sector via impartment of technical training and education. We certainly foresee recruitment opportunities for them at our own dealerships as this will help our dealers in getting quality trained manpower for their business.''

Fr. VM Thomas, head of the Don Bosco Institutions in Assam region said, ''This is a professional venture that we are undertaking with Yamaha to give quality skills to the needy youth. Our partnership and cooperation will reach to the masses with concerted effort made by Don Bosco in the best efforts that we make to help the youth of North East.''

As part of its continued CSR initiatives, India Yamaha Motor Pvt. Ltd. is poised to adopt Government Technical Institutes and to partner with reputed NGOs across India to launch Yamaha Training Schools with Yamaha Technical Academy certification. Yamaha also plans to launch YTS at each Yamaha Technical Academy spread across India to encourage the economically weaker youth to master Yamaha technology and get employed at Company dealerships.

Yamaha had recently launched its YTS in Kolkata, at the premises of Don Bosco Technical School (DBTS) in Liluah and at the premises of Government polytechnic in Aurangabad, Maharashtra. The company had earlier launched its YTS in Delhi, partnering Navjyoti India Foundation - a not-for-profit organization working with marginalized sections under the inspiring leadership of Magsaysay Award winner, Dr Kiran Bedi. Yamaha's first YTS was launched in association with Dayal Bagh Engineering Institute, Agra last year.
