The Youth Initiative For Debate, Deliberation & Dialogue

An Inclusive Approach Towards Policy!

We are an inclusive & non-partisan association that seeks to awaken socio-political consciousness among young adults to ultimately create a strong base for active and responsible citizenry.

Our vision is to create an ‘engaged society by the inclusion of youth in policy-making’, so that youths can realize their roles as stakeholders of issues and strive to create positive change.

Youth today, Adults tomorrow. Citizens always!
