Youth form an integral part of any society, and are part and parcel of the development process. India is a young nation, where the youth comprise of more than 40% of the Indian population. India is one of those developing countries which boasts of a youth bulge, which ensures that the absolute number of births will rise even if couples have fewer children.
Considering the complexities of change and its effects on youth hood, it is felt necessary to offer a certified training for those who are working with youth in various capacities. In addition there could be those youth who feel that they would like to understand their own peers and work towards creating a youth force in the country working towards change.
