Youth Ki Awaaz is back with its award-winning Writers Training Program that has trained over 3000 young people in critical skills of writing, research, interview and effective communication – in a new avatar, to equip young changemakers with creative problem-solving skills to achieve justice. The new Justicemakers Writer’s Training Program is being run by YKA in partnership with Ashoka’s Law for All initiative and Agami.
Hence, we are reaching out to a select cohort of passionate individuals and organizations, who may have among their networks young people with demonstrable dedication to the ideas of furthering justice. More details on the program are mentioned below:
The training program is virtual and free of cost and anyone across the country can apply, regardless of their association with the legal field. The idea is to demystify the concept of justicemaking to make it accessible for everyone, and preference will be given to applicants from minority (caste, gender, religion etc) backgrounds and to people with disabilities. Selected candidates will be writing 3 to 4 impactful stories and adapting them for social media campaigns, receive critical resources on demystifying justicemaking as well as intensive feedback to help them grow during the 4-week program, and get a letter of recommendation on successful completion.
YKA is selecting only 25 fellows for the last and final batch, which is due to start around 20th April. Last date to apply for the Justicemakers Writer’s Training Program is 15th April, and the application form is linked here: https://yka.io/justicemakersprogram
