Communications and Outreach Intern at Young Leaders for Active Citizenship

Young Leaders for Active Citizenship (YLAC)

Founded in 2016, Young Leaders for Active Citizenship (YLAC) aims to increase the participation of young people in the democratic process and build their capacity to lead change.

Our interventions are designed to equip citizens with a better understanding of the society they live in and the challenges that it confronts. The aim is to help young people broaden their perspective, think critically about their socio-political construct, tap their leadership potential and acquire skills to create a long-lasting impact. We currently run programs in different cities in India, in addition to undertaking projects in civic engagement and public policy.

YLAC’s Engagements

The team at YLAC works on a diverse range of projects. Our key focus areas include civic education, empathy building and youth leadership. Our interventions are designed as experiential learning programs for young people of different age groups (primarily 13-30) to build their skills and knowledge of policy making, social media advocacy, media literacy, etc. In addition to running our own flagship programs, we work with a wide variety of partners such as Instagram and Omidyar Network India (on online safety and digital citizenship), Oxfam (on inequality in society), Sustainable Mobility Network (on urban mobility), HelpAge India (on advocacy for the elderly) and others.

Our programs run in 15+ cities in India, although since the pandemic, most of our programming has moved online and we are now able to reach young people across the country
