Invite for YfD and GX 10-11



Dear Friends


Greetings from Pravah


Pravah, as you may be aware, is a Delhi based registered non- profit organization, building leadership for social change among youth, since 1993. We at Pravah are committed towards creating active citizens- a base of sensitive, well informed, independent minded young people who can contribute constructively to society and create a better world in diverse ways irrespective of their specific chosen fields.


 We are very pleased to inform you about three of our exciting programmes for the young people! Kindly spread the word about these programmes in your personal and professional networks and encourage the youth to apply for these programmes:


 YOUTH FOR DEVELOPMENT (YfD) is a six month internship programme in partnership with Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO) wherein young people get an opportunity to understand development issues, develop life skills and engage with a community with the view of creating a positive impact on the community and the issue. YfD volunteers intern with a grass root organisation/people's movement for a period of six months and are constantly mentored during the process. The period of internship is from September 2010 to March 2011.


 GLOBAL XCHANGE is a 6 month international exchange programme in partnership with Voluntary Services Overseas (VSO). The volunteers here will be placed for 3 months in a community in UK and 3 months in a community in India wherein the focus is to build respect and understanding among young people about different people, culture and communities between September 2010 to March 2011.


 More information about the above two programmes are mentioned in the attached one pager of YfD and GX.


 CHANGE LOOMS is a leadership and organisational development programme that supports, encourages and recognises young people (18-30 years) and their teams who have started and are running their own independent projects or organisations working for social change. The programme is intended to support new organisations grow and move forward.
