Mission:
The YP Foundation is a youth led and run non-profit in India that develops young people’s leadership skills to take action on issues that young people are passionate about.

The organization supports young people between the ages of 13 and 28 to conceptualize and implement community based projects that challenge stereotypes, forge sustainable partnerships and promote the uninhibited expression of young people.

In the last 6 years, TYPF has reached out to over 5000 young people and has worked with more than 800 young people as part of its working core team on the following issues:

Life Skills Based Education

Understanding Substance Abuse and Addiction

Empowering Street and Slum Children (Healthcare and Education)

Understanding Gender and Sexuality

Disaster Relief and Rehabilitation

Health and HIV/AIDS: Awareness, Prevention, Rights, Care & Support

Encouraging the Performing and Visual Arts

Human Rights and Peace Building Processes

Sexual Reproductive Health and Rights Awareness for Young People

The Young Citizen’s Right to Information, Governance & Legal System of India

Climate Change and The Environment

We find ourselves when we attempt to understand what is around us. The concept of TYPF is to provide young people the opportunity to take time out to do just this. For who knows, your voice could change things.
