Youth Take the Lead is a six month exchange project led by Restless Development in partnership with the Norwegian Agency for Exchange Cooperation (NOREC). It focuses on enhancing youth leadership across three Restless Development Hubs: Nepal, Tanzania and South Africa.

It is a once in a lifetime opportunity where you will meet new people, explore new culture and shape your career as well. One should definitely go for it.
