Pravah ( was set up in in 1993 with a vision to build youth leadership for social change. It is kept alive by an active and engaged Governing Board and a strong and professional executive team, and is being fulfilled through the design and delivery of innovative experiential learning and action programs with diverse groups of young people across the country. We also train teachers, support youth led initiatives, incubate new organizations and partner with other organizations to mainstream youth development and active citizenship by providing organizational development and programmatic support. We are also engaged in influencing public policy in the field of youth.

More often than not, young people are pre occupied in four spaces that society legitimizes them to inhabit. These are 1) Family 2) Livelihood/Education 3) Friends, and 4) Leisure (which includes entertainment, worship and sports among others) .There is one very vibrant space although quite marginalized that young people also occupy, which we call the 5th Space - a concept to inspire and facilitate young people to expand beyond the typical 4 spaces of career-education, family, friends and leisure by creating this space in the mentioned four spaces through exploring a journey from self to society and back .This is where young people understand themselves and engage in social action. It focuses on self-transformation of youth as much as on transforming society through them. The 5th space is co-owned and co-led by young people and adults, provides deep cross border experiences (including across borders of caste, class, gender, religion), and is a space for ‘refl-action’ (where in the best traditions of experiential learning, action is taken to learn about the self and reflection precedes and succeeds this action).

Annually, our total outreach is approx. 15000+ young people, support/mentor 100 social entrepreneurs/youth organizations, and work with around 100 partners.

So when you work (we prefer to call it ‘walk’ with us), you actually work with many others - young people, teachers, other organizations and the larger civil society – all from as diverse worlds as you can imagine.

In the current phase of our journey, we are looking for an inspired and committed fundraisers to work with us. Read on to know if it could be you!

Job Title- Associate Coordinator- Abilities Beyond Skills

Location- New Delhi

There is thus an urgent need to expand the scope of livelihoods programs to enhance employability, and measure their success not merely in terms of numbers placed, but also in terms of placements sustained, how individuals have grown in their chosen jobs/ careers over time and how satisfied they are with their overall quality of life. And this would surely be impacted positively if careers (whether as an employee or as an entrepreneur) are aligned to individual aspirations which in turn would impact the young person’s ability to choose the right livelihood option, sustain them and perform well.
Recognizing that current employability programs do not address the mismatch between employer expectations and potential employee needs, we at Pravah are in the process of developing an alternative youth centric curriculum and offer it to government and private players in the employability space.
