Our Approach

Programs

Journeys with Youth and Adolescents

Most of these programmes allow adolescents and youth to develop a deeper awareness and understanding about themselves, relate those stories to social realities by participating in immersive exposures and act upon them through self-designed action projects. The programs range from providing a physical space where young people from rural communities can come together and organize themselves to the ones which aim to nurture entrepreneurial skills of young people who wish to work on their own social change ideas. 

Community Mobilization and Action

Specifically designed programs for adivasi villages, these keep human rights issues (especially education and health) of the tribal communities at the center of our intervention and aims to build youth leaders who are able to raise their voices and act upon tribal population's social and cultural marginalization.

Collective Action

We organize some important campaigns that contribute in creating a buzz and influencing policy decisions at the local level. Extensively covered by the local media, these campaigns create a positive enviornment for social intervention and raise awareness (and consciousness) of the disctrict on Constitutional rights and values. In addition to their local impact, they hold national and state level importance as Synergy is a part of CYC's network which runs nation-wide campaigns across the country with many partners.

Testimonials

Our Clients
Lilly Singh, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador

What can you do as a pro-active youth to help other youth, I think that's something a lot of youth from my part of the world should learn from. Especially when I met these people called the Changeloomers. They had various programmes amongst them: teaching girls Karate so that they can do self-defence and grow confidence; teaching kids how to express themselves through skits, music and acting. All of this stuff was so wonderful to see because it was driven by kids.
