Young Leaders for Active Citizenship (YLAC)

Founded by Harvard and Oxford alumni, Young Leaders for Active Citizenship (YLAC) creates transformative learning experiences that build the capacity of young people to lead change in society.

YLAC programs take students outside the realm of what is conventionally taught in schools and universities. The modules are designed to enable participants to develop a better understanding of the society they live in and the challenges that it confronts. The aim is to help participants broaden their perspective, draw connections across disciplines, hone their leadership styles and put learning into action by engaging in live projects. The teaching methods are not the usual chalk and duster lectures; we use role-plays, group exercises, peer evaluations, videos and games to make the classroom come alive.


High School Achievers

The High School Achievers program is a one of its kind summer program designed to help young adults become active agents of change in their communities. It is a unique opportunity for students to broaden their perspective, interact with thought leaders from diverse backgrounds and create social impact by working on live projects for partner organizations.

The program engages students in interesting and intriguing debates, but through a participatory and experiential pedagogy that makes learning fun.

If you are studying in grades 9th to 12th and are no more than 18 years of age, you are eligible to apply.

Locations: Mumbai (May)   |   Delhi (June)   |   Mumbai (June-July)
