Ashoka India: Seeking Applications for Youth Venture Programme 2018
 

Deadline: 17 February 2018

Applications are now open for Ashoka’s Youth Venture Programme 2018 which identifies young people who are leading social impact initiatives and provides them workshop training, mentorship, networking opportunities and fundraising support across India.

Ashoka’s Youth Venture programme is an international community of young changemakers, with over 6,000 Venture teams in 23 countries across the globe. Youth Venture was developed from understanding a key insight of Ashoka Fellows in the field of youth development: one of the most effective ways to engage the youth in the process of change making is to help them realize and understand their own ability to make positive social change.

Based on the online application shortlisted candidates/teams will be invited to pitch their venture at the Selection Panel which is a 2-day event in Bangalore. If selected in this round, the candidates/teams are recognized as Ashoka Youth Ventures.

Travel and accommodation costs for out-station candidates and one accompanying elder would be provided both for the Selection Panel in Bangalore and the regular workshops in different cities.

Benefits:

  • This programme will help candidates scale their ventures and develop themselves as leaders for driving social and environmental change.
  • Being selected as a Youth Venture gives them access to Ashoka’s global network of leaders in the social sector.
  • They participate in four training workshops during their first year of induction.
  • They receive custom-tailored mentorship and fundraising support from Ashoka India and partner organisations.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Young people between 12 and 20 years old who:
  • Leads social change and creating an impact on their communities
  • Have credible business plans that will be sustainable
  • Exhibit change making skills: empathy, creativity, leadership, teamwork
