  B. ESDP - Employable Skill & Development Programme
  ESDP is a two-day programme conducted by DBI with the aim of providing the youth, particularly College youth, opportunities for participation, growth and empowerment, giving them various life coping and employable skills.

'Summer Time Youth Ministry' (STYM) is a month long programme organized annually during the summer vacation by 'Don Bosco Youth Mission & Educational Service' (DBYES) with the aim of providing a more concentrated service to the young people of the region. It has two phases. The first phase called "Youthbuild" consists of a week-long intensive hands-on-training for youth leaders under the guidance of experienced youth workers preparing them to conduct the second phase of the STYM in different rural and urban settings. The Youthbuild is conducted at Don Bosco Institute, Guwahati for about 40 to 50 youth leaders from the different YDCs of Assam, Meghalaya. After the training they are sent out to their respective areas with the mandate to train other youth through 'Youth Camps' and 'Animation Programmes'.

The Themes dealt with during the training included Group Formation, Capacity Building, Motivation Patterns, Contemporary Challenges, Social Involvement, Youth Attitude, Youth Justifications, Emarginated Youth, Media Education, Youth Spirituality, Youth Mission, Self-awareness, and Skills Building.

To make STYM more effective and fruitful, and to garner the benefits of past experience, DBYES produces animators' guide called Youth Resources every year. Within the pages of these volumes, you will find references, resources, information and techniques towards a more fruitful and satisfying ministry and service among the young. The leader/ animator becomes all the more effective when equipped with skills and techniques that promise something to the young, suited to their likes and requirements.
