SKF India has expanded the YES (Youth Empowerment at SKF) program that focuses on training, skill development and employability of youth, across Gandhinagar in Ahmedabad, Sakrali in Kolkata & Pali at Jodhpur. The YES program reaches out to the underprivileged youth of the country and equips them with industry-relevant skills, thereby improving their employability or helping them become micro-entrepreneurs. These centers will contribute to the overall program goal of skilling 10000 youth for the automotive sector by 2025.

As part of the expansion, SKF will be partnering with implementing partner - Ambuja Cement Foundation to set up dedicated YES centres.
