• Started as a national emergency response programme during the COVID crisis, 1000 Internships Programme evolved into Dexterity Global's Young Professionals Development Programme (YPDP) — training and supporting young professionals for leadership roles in the workforce.​​

  • The COVID-19 crisis led to global lockdowns, economic slowdown and hiring freezes. In April 2020, Dexterity Global launched the 1000 Internships Programme (now, YPDP). From Wokha in Nagaland to Kannur in Kerala, 1,000 youth from 310 districts and 27 states of India received an internship and career readiness training under the Programme.
