For Inclusive & Sustainable Development
is a 30-day certificate course
for youth workers aspiring and employed with different organizations
The Youth Work Resource Center runs the Youth Work for Inclusive and Sustainable Development Certificate Course for those who are keen to learn more about understanding and working with young people.
It is our belief that building a gender-equal, socially inclusive, pluralistic, democratic and sustainable society is only possible if young people have new values and aspirations for themselves and for the communities in which we live and work together.
Course participants are well equipped with an in-depth understanding of youth-hood and youth work in the Indian context. They also acquire skills for mentoring, guiding, mobilising, training and sensitising youth in creative and engaging ways. The curriculum includes enhanced self awareness with insights into one’s styles, motivations and stances with respect to young people.

What Happens After the Course?
Over the last 3 years, the course has trained over 60 young men and women who participated in the training with much enthusiasm and openness. Today, a majority of them work with young people in a wide range of settings – in youth clubs, in NGOs working with youth and in colleges where disadvantaged youth are their primary constituency.
Selected candidates have also been offered internships/ apprenticeships at the Yuva Samvada Kendras to hone their practical skills through assisting youth mentors.
