With a core focus on supporting and enabling young people to create programs and influence policy in the areas of gender, sexuality, health, education, the arts, and governance, The YP Foundation’s mission is to promote, protect and advance young people’s human rights in India by building leadership and strengthening youth led initiatives and movements. Founded in 2002 by Ishita Chaudhry at the age of 17, The YP Foundation has worked directly with 5,000 young people over the last 8 years, training them as peer educators for more than 200 projects in India.
The YP Foundation believes in empowering young people’s access to information, services and rights such that they can build collective platforms to challenge and develop their leadership potential and impact positive social change. They empower young people by supporting their work through three key focus areas of awareness and advocacy, community partnerships and programs and communications and skills development.
Please join us to learn more from Ishita Chaudhry about how her organization has reached 300,000 children, adolescents and young people between the ages of 3-28 years and what more can be done to support the largest ever generation of young people.
