Our Story

Who We Are.

Our Inspiration

Majority of people, to some extent, recognize the need for social change, but the translations of empathy into tangible acts are often noticed only among the few. The underlying cause is the fervently-held belief that, their ‘individual action’ is inconsequential in bringing about a larger social change. We believe, that, to make the individual-actions meaningful, they have to be channelized in an organized way. We derive our inspiration from the famous quote of Margaret Mead – “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.

About organization

The Towards Youth Foundation is a youth-led and youth-run not for profit organization of the third millennium aiming at organizing the youth as skilled, motivated and trained with different talents through information, formation and trans–formation. The need to establish a body that serve the need of the youth was conceived several years i.e. 2009 and it was in 2013 that the dream was fulfilled with the registration of TYF as a Trust in Chennai. The organization has been working with youth for their fruitful development ever since.
Towards Youth Foundation views and strongly believes that any contribution to the nation’s development should start from development of YOUTH in all walks of life. Over the years TYF has initiated a number of innovative interventions in the field and partnered with various government and non-government agencies to garner support for Youth.
Our major programmes are Skill Development Training, Entrepreneurship Training Programmes, Life Skill Development Programmes for Adolescent and Children, Career Based Skill Programmes for College Students, SHG formation among Women and the youth.
TYF also has a research, advocacy and training wing that works to support mobilization of civil society and influences policies at all levels. We actively participate in national and international networks for advocating and promoting policies, programmes and actions to extend the works toward Effective Youth Development
