Don Bosco Tech is the network of 125 Don Bosco skill training centers which provides employment-linked and market-driven short duration vocational courses to the economically and socially marginalized youth.

Set up in 2008 by the Salesians of Don Bosco, DB Tech addresses the issues of unemployment, unemployability and lack of skilled manpower with a market-based approach that is sensitive to the socio-economic needs of marginalized youth in the age group 18-35 years.

With funding from the Ministry of Rural Development, Government of India, under the Swarnajayanthi Gram Swarozgar Yojana (SGSY), DB Tech aims at empowering youth from below povertyline through the Bosco Academy for Skills and Employment (BASE) project. Under this project, around 46000 underprivileged youth from 24 states will be trained in market-driven course and placed in entry level opportunities in various sectors. The Swarnajayanti Gram Swarojgar Yojana (SGSY) of the Ministry of Rural Development, Govt of India, functions with the sole objective of providing employment linked, market-oriented training to youngsters from below poverty line sections of the country.
