When you work with Pravah you walk the thin line between…
Work and Fun
Sacrifice and Social Responsibility
Indiscipline and creativity
Hindi and English
Black and White
Right and Left
Me and We



At Pravah ( we support young people bring about the positive change they wish to see – in their own selves and the society around them.

Since we started out 18 years ago (Pravah was registered in 1993), we have been focusing on key aspects critical to a young person’s development viz.  understanding of themselves, developing their relationship and leadership skills, and engagement with social issues so that they can discover their potential as change makers.

The vision to build youth leadership for social change is kept alive by an active and engaged Governing Board and a strong and professional executive team, and is being fulfilled through the design and delivery of innovative experiential learning and action programmes with diverse groups of young people across the country. We also train teachers, support youth led initiatives,   incubate new organizations and partner with other organizations to mainstream youth development and active citizenship by providing organizational development and programmatic support. We are also engaged in influencing public policy in the field of youth.

So when you work (we prefer to call it ‘walk’ with us), you actually work with many others - young people, teachers, other organizations and the larger civil society – all from as diverse worlds as you can imagine.

In the current phase of our journey, we are looking for an inspired and committed fundraising professional to work with us. Read on to know if it could be you!
