About Young Bhartiya Foundation
The Young Bhartiya is a Mumbai based think tank established for the purpose of providing the Indian youth with the opportunity to conduct research on policy and to collate the latent student force into creating vital changes in society.

The opportunity to participate in policy making so far deserts the fast growing population of Indian youth and we would like to bring this essential democratic weapon back to them, especially on issues that affect us. A completely student centric think tank, we plan on enhancing student lives in the best way we can. By providing a platform for writings to get published, internships, employment opportunities and other initiatives, we plan on creating a holistic hub for the young.

We accept articles and research papers in order to offer a platform for the writings to get wider recognition and get published. People are welcome to write and conduct analysis on a variety of issues that interest them and can cause an advantage on their respective career paths. What separates us as an organization however is that we offer an end to the rising voices and opinions. Our crowning jewel is 'make a change' whereby students can start movements for social change or enlist ideas for social innovation that will be carried out by the organization. The change we wish to see in our country tomorrow must begin with the youth of today. Together we must work, one, as ignited minds.

Our Mission

  • Empower students
  • Make leaders
  • Developing leadership skills amidst students to administer and manage and conduct research at a think tank by themselves, an opportunity that so far is not available to undergraduates.
  • Create a platform for the voicing of opinions of students on issues of contemporary India through publication of online articles.
  • Create a research environment amidst students through publication of research papers that will help the future batches and the general public in their academic research.
  • To provide internships to students in any field of their choice so that they can analyze policy in that particular field and decide for themselves if it is something they wish to pursue for their future.
  • To provide adequate employment opportunities, financial aid, and information about job openings, scholarships and career guidance in their chosen fields.
  • Collating the latent student force against issues that affect them and the country in general through the use of petitions and public movements.
