Review for The YP Foundation, New Delhi, --, India

Rating: 5 stars  

I had always heard about The YP Foundation from my daughter's friend when it was called "Youth Parliament" . Back then i never knew what they really did. It was when my son started working them that I realized the socially useful productive work they are doing. In a country like India, where many problems still exist, it is young people who have to take an onus to change it, and I found TYPF to be one of the very few organizations completely run by young people (and run professionally at that), for young people by directly empowering them to change. Whether its encouraging young students to vote and teaching them the importance of democracy, talking about SRHR in country where such topics are never spoken about, welcoming International students and bridging the divide in terms of cultures, using different media like film and music to advocate change, teaching life skills to slum children or saving the environment and the girl child, the YP is able to provide a space for young people to work on issue that feel passionate about by providing them with all the resources. It is pleasurable to be associated with the YP.

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

how young people, of different make ups, are able to come together so inspired and charged to do something good for the society they live in.

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

talented, confident, ambitious, determined to bring about a change

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

perhaps expand the scope of its work and take it to places and people where such platforms are non-existent

Ways to make it better...

I spent more time with the YP

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

difficulty in raising finances

Rating: 5 stars  

Working in The YP Foundation has been an amazing learning and eye opening experience. It equipped me with all the skills that not only enabled me to be competent but also be a good citizen of this world. Besides making friends and having fun, it brings you to a level of awareness as never before. I came into the YP able but have managed to become differently enabled!

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

how it makes you aware by making you work for an issue thats social in nature and u have so much fun that you want to work more for it

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

absolutely amazing!

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

do the good work it plans to do, but is often constrained by the lack of funds. No org. in Delhi according to me has such good intentions.

if I could spend more time with the organization.
