Youth For Seva started under HSP as a project and eventually in 2011 got independent.
There is a growing desire among the youth in India to volunteer their time and talent for community development. But most of them are not currently involved in volunteering work because of three major reasons:
- Not knowing where to start.
- The fear that it may be too much of a responsibility.
- Concern that it cannot be done within the limited time available to them.
“Youth for Seva” (YFS) was formed in April 2007 to fill this gap so that youth with an intention to volunteer and with different time commitments can easily find meaningful opportunities to serve the community.
The mission of YFS is to inspire youth to volunteer, connect them to the grass roots projects, and provide ongoing support and training to the volunteers and the NGOs.
