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.

It gives every individual their own space to work with issues that they are passionate about. It creates an environment that allows you to learn and meet people with different skills, giving a young person an opportunity they may not get otherwise.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Absolutely brilliant. Intelligent. Challenging. And downright capable. These young people can go a long way.

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.

The Great!

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.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

focused and practical when it came to tackling various issues. They set practical goals and worked tirelessly towards achieving them. They never allowed setbacks to discourage them from moving ahead.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

provide sustainable livelihoods to a greater number of poor and disenfranchized communities.

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 . !!!!!

The Great!

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.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Frankly, NOTHING.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I got to interact with various musicians first hand. Loved it.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

helpful; full of zeal and passion for their organization!

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Expand it's horizon and reach out to a million other issues prevalent in our society. At the moment, finance is the determining factor..with 10 million bucks-It'll get taken care of.

Ways to make it better...

I had to travel a lot lesser to reach it's office!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

financial constraints.

I joined the YP foundation this year in july. The experience gained till now was fruitful. What i like about the organization is the kind of people who are a part of it. They are extremely warm and welcoming which is what I think is the best part of the YP besides the kind of work they do specially for the urban youth of the country. I'm looking forward to working with it.

Great. Extremely friendly and accomodating. When i initially joined the organization there was a slight inhibition. After 3 months of working with it that awkward feeling no longer exists
