ABOUT PRAVAH 

Pravah (https://www.pravahindia.org/) was formed in 1993 with the mission to work on the ‘prevention’ of social conflicts by developing social responsibility and personal leadership among young people (adolescents and youth). We believe that social change is effected through a deep mindset change of individuals and along with the empowerment of the socially excluded it is imperative to hugely shift the attitudes of individuals in powerful decision-making positions, in order to change the social structures that marginalise communities. 

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 have preoccupied with 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 the 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, and religion), and is a space for ‘refl-action’ (wherein 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. 

Pravah is currently on a new curve of expansion – both in size and the scope of its interventions. To support it, a number of exciting opportunities have arisen for the engagement of inspired and committed people with diverse levels of skills and experience in Pravah. 

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