  4. 4. Youth Lead The Change Model We aim to build a movement of young leaders equipped to meet India’s problems by designing processes to identify young individuals with a spark to think innovatively for the larger social good. We do this by conducting programs where they get experiential exposure in both urban and rural space to identify their passion. Mission Statement
  5. 5. The Project Lead the Change is a 8 week program which takes 30 passionate individuals on a rigorous journey to explore themselves inside-out, to internalise the challenges (under issues like women empowerment & human trafficking, education, policy etc.) of the country through hands-on exposure. They hone their leadership skills by learning from role models and experts in the social development domain and employ design thinking to undertake a time bound social action. There is a strong focus on deep self-awareness and starting the process from within. Beyond the program, we help participants build their social enterprise by connecting them with mentors and helping them build a team.
