We want to solve India's gerontocracy. The only way to do that is with youth representation.

YIF is India's first non-partisan, non-profit organisation focused on making Indian politics more accessible for India's 67 crore young people. Through the Centre for Youth Policy, YIF-PAC, and Youth Civic Advocacy, we bridge the gap between the country's youth and their political representatives. We believe in the power of political leadership at the grassroots level, and we believe in our country’s youth.

YIF's Centre for Youth Policy

We believe that young people are a crucial demographic data point when it comes to political research—we enhance existing knowledge and build onto political discourse by shedding light on age and youth as a vital variable in research. Young people are an important part of the data revolution—our research puts them front and centre across a variety of research questions.

We empower young people through a multitude of interventions that focus on increasing youth political sensitivity. We want to ensure that politics is inclusive of young people and their aspirations, and we achieve this through bringing the world of Indian politics directly to them.

YIF-PAC: YIF's Political Action Committee

YIF works to support independent candidates contesting elections at the grassroots level free of cost. We aim to lower the barriers to entry for these candidates by helping them with legal help, campaign management & tactics, organisation building, and access to training—all to ensure that candidates are empowered by their constituency and participate in real progress.
