  • SMILE Rural In-turn-ship: Our flagship youth programme with a twist of in-turn-ship supports a young person to have an inside out leadership journey. They are placed as interns with grass-root organizations & social movements across the country for a period of 3-6 weeks to confront with the realities on-ground and become better adaptive learners. 

  • SMILE Fellowship:  A deep dive from the in-turn-ship this  6 months long intensive journey mentors a young person to become a leader, and design and lead social action projects in their own communities. The motto is simple - learn, lead and impact.

  • Get Real: To build deeper self awareness, explore the barriers and enablers to unlock the potential of young people Pravah with Vyaktitva*  has designed  a journey of personal growth. Young people get access to tools and processes that support them to become more aware, adaptive and learners for life.

  • SamjhoToh: The Samvidhan LIVE Dialogues: A pilot project that brings young people from different ideologies together to access a space to learn and practice the skill of deep dialoguing and co- create a vision of India together. Using the medium of music and lyrics as a tool,  this programme helps to find  common threads and accept the differences to nurture tolerance. 

  • Self Development Workshops: In partnership with the Miranda House and Jesus and Mary College, Delhi University, Pravah designs and facilitates a leadership building curriculum with the students of Bachelor of Elementary Education, for them to have a deeper understanding of self and relationships as they create learning spaces for others.

  • Group Exposures: 5-7 day workshops in rural hinterlands of India that help one understand social issues and the role they play in our lives. This 'self to society' journey is embarked upon by a group of 15-20 young people.

  • Youth Festivals:  Our Youth festivals   - Jashn-E-Agaaz, Music for Harmony and Youth Jumbish are annual events envisioned as  youth-led platforms. As a part of SMILE journey come together to design and run a youth event , in the process they learn new skills, challenge their comfort zones, work as a team , showcase their talent and make their voices heard on issues that matter to them.
