Our Empowerment Model

We Transform People

Youth Leadership Training Program (YLTP)

India has the largest youth population in the world. Nearly 40% of the Indian population is youth (as defined in the National Youth Policy). Our Youth Leadership Training Program makes them role models. Our practical training sessions transform young men and women in villages and tribal communities into socially and economically self-reliant people with the confidence, energy and enthusiasm to create change. We do this by reviving their human values, invigorating their mental capacity, enhancing their physical health, developing their vocational skills and sensitizing them to the sustainable management of natural resources.

Our youth are our future. By supporting Art of Living Projects, you invest in India’s future.
