• Started as a national emergency response program during the COVID crisis, 1000 Internships Program evolved into Dexterity Global's Young Professionals Development Program (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 Program (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 Program.
