SRM University AP, Amaravati has always been a front-runner in the development of the state. In-fact, it was after the Chief Minister announced his plans of building the new capital Amaravati from scratch, that P.

Mukhyamantri Yuva Nestam is an ambitious project focused on providing assistance to educated unemployed youth for skill development and up-skilling. This will eventually lead to apprenticeships and jobs and shows the commitment of the Government in providing gainful employment to all across the state.
