Young people share a restless determination to address the problems that affect them the most. That’s where we come in. At Restless Development, we’re proud to be the banner carrier for youth-led development, demonstrating from the grassroots to the global policy levels that young people can and must play a lead role in development.
Plan-It Girls is a school-based programme, that aims to work with boys and girls aged 12-17 to promote gender equality norms through redefining masculinity and reflecting critically on inequitable gender norms and violence. The core components of the program are delivered through group education activities as per 4 specific modules, school based campaigns, and structured engagement with teachers and communities (parents and etc.). The curriculum has two components: empowerment and employability. Empowerment focuses on building girls’ understanding of self, gender, domestic violence and etc. It also develops girls’ self-efficacy, ability to map and use resources, and to develop their planning, communication, and personal management skills. Employability creates girls’ awareness of their own skills and interests, helps them develop career maps, and identifies concrete pathways towards future economic enhancement. We are aspiring to reach out to 20,000 Young Girls and Boys (10,000 each) in two locations (Delhi and Jharkhand).
We are providing an opportunity to a passionate young person to understand our work with other NGOs, our policy advocacy work and evaluation reports. Although the tasks are very specific, we are committed to providing a learning environment for the young person to explore our other areas of work, as s/he finds pertinent.
