Youth Unity Foundation is a non-governmental organization working to strengthen unity amongst youth of India. Our mission is to unite youth of India to foster development of society and country as a whole. To achieve our mission we need to connect up with youth across nation and take initiatives to make them participate in events organized by the foundation for the welfare of society and county at large. We aim at empowering unemployed and underemployed youth by providing them education and career counseling. Our programs include career counseling sessions, vocational skill development session, spreading awareness amongst youth about various social norms that need to be worked about to make society a better place to live. We also engage into activities like providing education to different age-groups of underprivileged sections of society to help them learn, grow and hence develop along with our developing economy.
