Youth Citizen Service

Youth Citizen Service Leadership Challenge 2015

Youth Citizen Service (YCS) is an action learning programme for young Indians. YCS creates an opportunity for India’s youth to actively work towards addressing development issues while they themselves build a deeper understanding of the dynamics of poverty and development.

As part of the full time, six week programme, young people in the age group of 18-25 volunteer with an NGO in India. In this engagement, they discover themselves, learn interpersonal, leadership and other skills and gain valuable experience in the development sector. They learn to join the dots between diverse issues of poverty and get a chance to contribute to specific issues in a specific community.

The programme supports the travel, accommodation, food, medical insurance and training costs of the volunteers. A stipend is also paid to them.

Eligibility criteria:

  • Age – 22 to 29 years

  • Able to join the programme from August 04 to September 15, 2015
