Making the Youth
Having the right skills to create ‘value’ whatever shape the future takes, thus remaining employable, entrepreneurial, and fit even for the gig economy.
Why Timeless Lifeskills?
1. Technological Unemployment
Any routine, rule-based job that can be reduced to an algorithm, can now be done better, faster, and cheaper by computers.
2. Job Polarisation
Only the high-skill high-wage and the low-skill low-wage jobs will remain. Mid-tier jobs will be done more efficiently by intelligent machines.
3. Right Skills & Dispositions
To get the high-wage jobs, or to start their own enterprise, young people need to learn the right skills and dispositions.
Making the Youth
Having the right dispositions to ensure health, well-being, and joyful living.

About Timeless Lifeskills
Since 2013, Timeless Lifeskills Foundation has been working with under-served children, helping them build skills and dispositions that make them Future-Ready (value-creators and hence employable in the emerging economy) and Life-Ready (healthy and joyful).
We are working with 20+ rural schools in India, conducting workshops, starting life skills clubs, remote-mentoring, and a lot more. In the UK, we conduct workshops for under-served students, and give presentations and talks to college students and at corporates to raise awareness about the changing context of the 21st-century and how to be successful and joyful in the global economy that is emerging.
