The adolescents have the intellectual maturity to assess a situation, assess the various aspects of the situation, challenge the prescription of others, develop a repertoire of skills, make a choice of own and later come to a conclusion about the skill and its execution. Social skills are considered as most important life skills for social well being of individuals. The social risks are many; poor mental health, dropping out of school, low achievement and other school difficulties, poor employment history. Social skills education plays a very vital role to increase the awareness among the youth about all social problems and to alleviate social evils from the society. It involves a person’s relationship with others and how that person communicates, interacts and socializes with other people. It helps the individual to improve the ability to take everything in the right sense and also improve their contributions to the society. The present study focuses on the importance of social skills education and the benefits of imparting social skill education in our curriculum i.e. self awareness, empathy, effective communication and interpersonal relationship in adolescents, as they are the important building blocks for a dynamic citizen, who can cope with future challenges and survive well.
