Leadership and Justice Oriented Programmes

There are several socio-religious and political divisive forces in India which have been trying to induce the young on the grounds of caste, religion, region and language. Today there is also an erosion of values for various reasons which caused a vacuum in the sphere of ethics and morality. Unfortunately, individualism, materialism and consumerism have risen so high that there is a crisis for the most important values of honesty, respect and social responsibility. Added to this, there is a strong dearth of models of servant leadership, idealism and commitment which breeds a sense of hopelessness and indifference.

Today’s youth is concerned with the issue of corruption more than anything else and that is the reason most of the protesters in the recent Anna Hazare’s campaign against corruption were the Indian youth. Mr Ratan Tata once said, “The youth of today will need to recognize that they shoulder a great responsibility.  They will need to fight for rooting out corruption, for ensuring that no one is above the law and uniting the citizens of India as ‘India first’ instead of communal or geographic factions”.  Though fighting against corruption is the responsibility of every citizen but the youth by virtue of their nature and energy participate more in this cause.

YESJ will strive to provide the youth guidance in identifying and developing leadership styles and responsibilities.The programmes aim to enable the youth to speak out from the very beginning of their career and life that they will not compromise and will adhere to ethical values; display honesty even if they are not questioned or watched; and show fairness and transparency in whatsoever they do.
