Youth Citizen Service (YCS) is an action learning programme for young Indians. YCS provides an opportunity for India's youth to actively work towards addressing development issues while they themselves build a deeper understanding of the dynamics of poverty and development.


As a part of the full time, six weeks long programme, 12 young people in the age group of 22-29 will get an opportunity to volunteer in Bundelkhand region of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh. In this engagement, they will discover themselves, learn interpersonal, leadership and other skills and gain valuable experience in the development sector. They will get to learn about various livelihood interventions in the target community and also get a chance to contribute to related issues in the specific community.


The programme supports the travel, accommodation, food, medical insurance and training costs of the volunteers. Basic daily living allowance  will also be provided to the volunteers on weekly basis.
