the most frequently asked question,one thats been on my lips at some point or the other as well - 'what is the point of the yp'?? the answer is simple - the point is the first step - the yp gives ppl the the opportunity to learn, to speak and share, to feel safe in numbers... Its key characteristic to me is its potential. I see now that the YP is trying to raise funds... It would be a pity to see an organization with such potential fall because of money -
The YP for me, has been not just an organization, or a group of people, rather a journey. If I look back at the last 3 years of my life, almost every moment of realization, skills i discovered, limits I pushed, has in some way or another been related to my work with The YP Foundation. Working as project head of a street children s project earlier, and now in a completely new space of work, The YP has given me a platform to discover myself. Its provided me with the opportunity to engage with the issues I'm passionate about, to work with young people like - minded as I am, and develop skills I never dreamt I had. Working with the YP has defined and re-modelled me, my way of thinking, my confindence and I how see everything. These last 3 years with the YP, has really helped take a big step in making me realize the difference I can really make in this world. Just me.
Its around 2.00 am in China and im sitting writing a grant proposal for one of the branches of the yp. Looking back all I can say is that 2 years ago i never ever thought this would be real. Any of it. Finding focus, being able to retain your idealism and learning to work with people is no small thing, and the YP's definitely done that for me. With all its craziness and sometimes chaos, there are not mane such spaces/ places which have managed to survive. being able to adapt to different young people's expectations and personalities is no small thing. To ownership and accountability, wishing that this the trajectory continues.
My experience with the YP foundation has been so far, amazing! I work with Voices, a part of the YP Foundation that works with school kids on different issues pertaining to them. The amount of the dedication that is shown by the different heads of Voices leaves me speechless. Moreover, all the meetings that we have are fun as well. It's like a total win-win situation. I have loved working with the YP so far and would like to be with YP as long as I can be !
It has taught me a lot and opened me to so much more as far as music is concerned. I learnt how to approach people, organise events, got so much exposure and overall had a very rewarding experience with YP.
I was drawn to the YP Foundation because of its commitment to dealing with pertinent issues that plague society. What made me stay on was the sheer dedication of the staff to fulfil what they believe in: a world purged of hypocrisy, inequality and discrimination. From rehabilitating underpriveleged children to upholding the rights of sexual minorities, the YP strives to mobilze the youth in effecting positive changes in society. It is a testament to the fact that today's youth is insensitive to the problems of the society they live in. Rather, they are aware and concerned. Through the YP's activities, the youth get to channelize their efforts and energies in a productive and sytematic manner towards making a difference.
my experience of working with TYPF has been great so far . I have never been so effected by the cause i believe in , nor i have ever been challenged in such a manner . It has given me the opportunity to work with with children , which not only benefits them ( i hope so ) but also me .Its very very crazy !!!!!!!! . though the best part about it is that you feel you work for a cause but in a way you work in building yourself as well . !!!!!
This is the first time I'm working with an NGO and The YP Foundation has far exceeded my expectations. I truly believe that this organisation has the potential to bring about a big difference.
TYPF encourages young people to work towards causes they identify with and in the process develop themselves.I have been involved with the TYPF for 3 months now and have had a wonderful experience!
My experience with TYPF has been extremely enriching and was more like an eye opener. The amount of exposure in terms of interacting with people from varied job profiles, interests, backgrounds, tastes etc was amazing! Even though the organization is involved with different projects simultaneously, the amount of support given to each project from within is commendable. I, for one, have never seen such harmony and peace at a workplace! The three months that I spent at TYPF will forever be cherished.
