ATTC was started in 2011 with the mission to create sustainable programs for training and retraining of youth for employability. Students who have dropped out from school or have completed their formal education up to 8th or 10th std are our target groups. ATTC imparts holistic vocational education for these individuals through Work Integrated Training Module by providing on-the-job training through experts. Our programs offer courses for carpenter, masson, gas cutter, grinder, welder and gardener which are affiliated by Ministry of Labour and Employment under the Modular Employable Skills (MES) program. We firmly believe in spreading awareness, building self-confidence and employment opportunities among rural youth.

Education is a basic tool to bring development to youth from disadvantaged strata of the society. We aim to promote higher education through educational scholarship to bridge the gap of resources between 'haves' and 'have nots'.
