Over 30 million young rural migrants working in China's urban districts have received training provided by Communist youth leagues across the country.
The Central Committee of the Communist Youth League of China said more than 30 million migrant youth have received training programs at more than 4,000 training schools over the past five years.
The training programs launched in 2001 cover various fields such as state policies and laws, culture, vocational skills, production safety and refined behavior.
Government statistics show that the country's total migrant population is estimated at 130 million.
China's waves of migrant workers began to spread out from the countryside in the 1990s when a handful of east coastal cities started to develop.
Migrants from underdeveloped western China often take jobs as construction workers, maids, waiters and vegetable hawkers in cities.
