Dear young social innovators,
Ashoka India: Innovators for the Public is recruiting our third cohort of Youth Venturers and we want you to apply!
The live application link and for more details about the application please look at the poster attached to this email.
What is the Youth Venture program you ask?
Ashoka India’s Youth Venture program works with the belief that one of the most effective ways to drive social change is to empower young people to realize their own ability to make positive social change. We are looking for young minds who believe in pushing the boundaries of innovation to find answers to social problems and who exhibit traits like leadership and empathy.
Selected candidates receive support in the form of extensive mentorship and training through a structured program, and become part of Ashoka’s Global network of Social Innovators & Entrepreneurs. The program is completely free and travel and accommodations for events will be reimbursed.

- Have already started an initiative that has a social impact
