JAN SURAAJ YOUNG LEADERS PROGRAM
At the Jan Suraaj Young Leaders Program, we believe transformational change happens when Sahi log (right people), Sahi soch (right thought), and Samuhik prayaas (collective action) come together.
The JSYL Program is a one-of-a-kind experiential learning opportunity in Bihar that aims to acquaint selected young individuals with the ropes of grassroots politics. It is a program built for zealous young individuals interested in participating and learning from active political movements who are committed to the cause of strengthening Indian democracy.
