WHO WE ARE
ComMutiny – The Youth Collective (CYC) was set up in 2008 to promote the rights of young people for participation, development and leadership.
ComMutiny represents the ‘mutiny’ within that evolves when we work deeply in diverse communities. ComMutiny – The Youth Collective (CYC) is a collective of nearly 50 youth led and youth engaging organizations that work in collaboration to promote youth leadership by creating what we call ‘5th Spaces’ across the country.
There are four legitimate ‘spaces’ that young people primarily occupy, that of family, livelihood/education, friends, and leisure. Beyond these four spaces, which are not often governed by young people, there is a space we choose to call the 5th Space that young people also occupy, where they truly discover themselves as they engage in social action. This is a space that they govern and take leadership in. The 5th Space is an exciting, adventurous and yet safe space that equips young people to understand themselves, address conflicts, build cross-border relationships, clarify their values/stances, and develop leadership skills by enabling them become learners for life and nurture a learning society along with them.
"Owning my Samvidhan – A game with the young, by the young and for the young!"
The Game begins on November 26, 2016.
Above 500 young people or 'Jagriks' as we call them (meaning aware citizens) will take on a journey of their lifetime to engage with the on-ground realities of our constitution. While playing a real life board game, these young people will endeavour to live, understand and own the constitution.
These Jagriks will be hosted & mentored by 23 partner organizations across 15 states. In the process of the game they will also interact & engage with over 60,000 people asking them questions on their experience with the constitution.
