YLTP: Intro

Youth Leadership Traing Program (YLTP) An Introduction

An Indian village earns about Rs. 1.2 crore per year (400 families earning 2500 per month over 12 months) and spends Rs. 40 lacs per annum wastefully on alcohol, tobacco, drugs etc. on the other hand, they wait for Government aid for village development – a mere 1.2 lacs per annum; and squabble over this small fund.

The result is that the village can’t develop, grow or contribute to the nation. The villages are dirty and unhygienic – with poor drinking facilities, sanitation, medical facilities and few schools. YLTP aims to stop this wasteful expenditure and channel it for village development.

The aim of YLTP is to uplift individual communities to become self-reliant-socially and economically – and revive Human Values.


  1. To make villages of rural India spiritually, socially and economically self-reliant
  2. To promote and provide for the mental, physical and spiritual well-being of a community as a whole so that they are ‘stress-free’ and are able to channel their energies positively towards developmental activities
  3. To uplift the tribal communities, women and children
  4. To sensitize village communities regarding maximum and sustainable utilization and management of their natural resources
  5. To revive human values

Through the Youth Leadership Training Program, youth from villages are trained to make best use of their inherent potentials and foster self-development. The youth are then generated to take responsibility not only for themselves but also to uplift cluster of villages. Their sole aim thereafter is to create model villages – a village that is emulating by the rest of the world; a village that is Swachha (Clean), Swastha (Heathy), Sundara (Beautiful), Subhadra (Secure) and Sushikshit (Educated).

The process of DSN (Divya Samaj Nirman) is to train the village youth in the Youth Leadership Training Program (YLTP), deploy them in villages and set targets creating model villages. These youth leaders (yuvacharyas) implement the 5H Program of Health, Hygiene, Homes for Homeless, Human Values and Harmony in Diversity.

Rural youth are provided a wide spectrum of in-depth training with regard to their physical, mental, emotional and spiritual development enabling them to take on any challenging situation willingly and efficiently.

The training comprises of
  1. YLTP Phase – I: A 10 day training schedule aimed at inculcating the values of commitment, self-discipline, selfless service, community belongingness and strong character in the youth.
  2. Field Training: The field training for participants is for 3 months and is aimed at practical application of the 5H Program.
  3. YLTP Phase – II: A 10 day training schedule aimed at bringing the participants to focus on self-discipline, human resource management and economic development of a village. The development is aimed to be sustainable by bringing in all parties of society like government and private bodies together as equal players.

The best among the participants are designated as youth leaders (yuvacharyas) to implement the 5H program in the villages.
