THE YP FOUNDATION IS HIRING!

 

WE ARE HIRING!

We are an eclectic and committed group of young people (18 – 30 years) who collectively lead and run The YP Foundation (TYPF), a youth-led and -run organization that supports and enables young people to create programmes and influence policies in the areas of gender & sexuality, governance, health, education, the arts & digital media. The organization promotes, protects and advances young people’s human rights by building leadership, and strengthening youth led initiatives and movements. Founded in 2002, we have worked over the last 10 years directly with 6,500 young people to set up over 250 projects, reaching out to 350,000 young people, across 18 states in India.

 

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR?

We are at a crucial juncture as we move into our second multi-year Strategic Plan and are specifically looking for experienced young professionals and practitioners who can commit to lead, implement and build on this long-term vision. Our staff is a team of 16 young people (largely between 18 – 28 years) who work both part-time and full time, with an active volunteer base of over 100 young people each year.

What would TYPF’s Epitaph read like?

This is what our board member, Vidyun Sabhaney had to say…

TYPF was an organization unafraid of change – within itself, and the world around it. It understood ‘change’ in a way that was revolutionary, truly unique to the young person of the 21st century – the era of hustle and bustle, loneliness, terror, fear, forgetfulness, and the individual. Through this definition and understanding of change it enabled literally thousands of young people in India to challenge systems through substance, and create alternatives which work.

It encouraged an entire generation to work with people and their context, not despite them/ it made thousands of young people aware and active in civil society. It sought justice for the un-empowered productively, without political motive, it rarely made the same mistake twice and bore good-will even to those it disagreed with. With its passing we mourn the loss of an organization that understood not everyone finds Wonderland (and when they do, it’s rarely just a tea party), but if you ventured a step behind the Looking Glass, perhaps you’d end up an Alice anyway…
