The Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) Cell

St Joseph’s Evening College, Bangalore was established in 1970 for the education of the working students. St. Joseph’s Evening College, a 42 year old institution is a part of their large educational endeavor to empower marginalized young men and women in order to prepare for life. The Vision of the College is “To prepare men and women for the service of others, specially the poor, oppressed and marginalized”. To align with the vision of the institution, the College has taken up the mission of promoting all the socio-economic weaker segments of the students in all their endeavors. In fact, it has been one of major thrust and core endeavor of our Institution.

One of the major initiatives taken by the institution to facilitate the SC and ST programs was the establishment of the SC and ST cell. The Scheduled Caste (SC) and Scheduled Tribes (ST) Cell in our institute promotes and facilitates the special interests of students seeking various employment, financial and non-financial assistants. It is expected to provide special inputs in areas where the students experience difficulties. The Cell may conduct regular remedial coaching classes on life skills, personality development, awareness drives, skill based programs, employment drives, counseling etc. The Cell also organizes interactive sessions and informal meetings with students to attend to their personal, social and academic problems.

Vision and Mission of the Evening College :
This SC/ST welfare program is sponsored by Govt of Karnataka and Keonics is the Govt Body which introduced this scheme of not just giving skills to the students but also with assured placements.

St Joseph's evening college students are the most deserving candidates for these kind of welfare schemes as most of the students studying here are from economically weaker section and these High End training courses will not just enhance the skill sets of the students but to get them job ready and also as help them grow to higher salaries once their career begins

The other important point is candidates here irrespective they are final year or first year or second year all of them coming from weaker economic background need jobs to not just sustain their college fees but also contribute to their family.

So running these kind of welfare schemes should be more encouraged for evening colleges which will make an high impact and goal of the program of giving jobs Karnataka govt and helping the weaker section is achieved and easier to measure the success of program year on year

Also there are various Schemes which available for SC?ST students other than Skill Development like

IAS/KAS Coaching 2016
Bank Coaching 2016
SC : Post-Metric Scholarship-2016
Scheme For Prize Money-First Attempt First Class -2016

These schemes awareness and more details could be shared with evening colleges as lots of students can be benefitted
