State level youth convention

To curb the violence against women there is a need to constantly work both with men and women. We realize that it is very important to intervene in the socialization process if we want to break the oppressive pattern of patriarchy. That peers in educational institutions like school and college are the most crucial as it has a great socializing influence in shaping their value system. You may be aware that we have already undertaken awareness programs in different Colleges and Universities in 15 districts of Odisha through our district resource centers with an objective to promote youth as ambassadors against any form of gender based violence and to make the institutions safe for girls and women.

 To give a common platform to students of different parts of Odisha by exploring and exchanging their acquaintance and expertise to make a gender just society, we gave been organizing state level youth convention from last three years. In this year also we are organizing state level youth conventions to engross more and more youth. We organised our state level youth convention on 21st and 22nd August 2015 at CYSD, Bhubaneswar.
