The opportunity to participate in policy making so far not easily available to the Indian youth .We would like to bring this essential democratic weapon back to you, the youth, especially on issues that affect us.

By providing a platform for your writings to get published, internships, employment opportunities and other initiatives, we plan on creating a holistic hub for you.
We accept articles and offer a platform for your writings to get wider recognition. You are welcome to write and conduct analysis on a variety of issues that interest you and this will give you more exposure to achieve your career goals. What separates us as an organization however is that we offer a platform for your voices to be heard. Our aim 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.
- Developing leadership skill amongst students to administer and conduct research at a think tank by themselves, an opportunity that so far not available to undergraduates.
- Create a platform that will foster student voices related to contemporary and social issues.
- 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.
During the internship, I acquired the skills of how to go about writing the article in the first place. I was made aware of the importance of writing the concept note before digging deep into the content of the article. Through the course of writing the article, my supervisor guided me through the writing process, giving me suggestions on how best to improve my article and make rectifications."
