"For the Youth, By the Youth, For all People "
Despite constituting over a third of our population, youth in India is largely under-represented in organized politics due to a variety of reasons. These include high entry barriers, disillusionment & disengagement, & lack of inclusive platforms to engage meaningfully with civic issues & governance processes.
“A future where representative politics is accessible and inclusive of youth; where the public is well-equipped with tools to actively engage with state institutions; where grassroots politics is shaped by young leaders working beyond parties.”
We aim to increase youth participation in community development and civic issues. Our objective is to empower youth with critical knowledge on the parliamentary system, elections, filing RTIs and other governance issues through workshops, webinars, and other collaborative exercises.
We will support, mentor and build capacities of promising changemakers to multiply the impact of their initiatives. We will enhance the capcity of aspiring leaders and active citizens to engage and change political processes for the better. This could be through supporting movements and ideas for change at the grassroots.
We aspire to enhance representation, voter participation and advocacy of youth-led political initiatives by establishing an inclusive platform of ideation, dialogue and action for young changemakers, youth-led and youth-serving organisations.
India is the world's youngest country but in its politics or its policies, the youth do not find their aspirations being heard or acted upon. YuvaGalam will be the platform that amplifies their voice, Shapes young leaders by incubating their ideas with the right resources & provide them with the required knowledge base.
