YES Network Pakistan was founded by Ali Raza Khan in 2002 to drive first-ever 'Youth as a Solution' movement in the country and get young people started as changemakers. YES facilitates several thousand young people each year to begin their changemaking journey. YES creates,activates and multiplies spaces for young people to master changemaking skills across the country. YES offers a comprehensive package to youth; from inspiration to experimentation; to training and risk-free funding,showcasing and practical support. In 2008 the YES decided to take an institution change approach to break down the traditional, attitudinal,social, structural, legal and financial barriers to youth-led changemaking. YES has planted the seeds of youth-led changemaking in over 1200 educational and vocational institutions, integrated this concept into the curriculum of over 172 leading vocational and educational institutions of Pakistan; and is working with over 80 leading universities of the country to align their structures for youth-led changemaking through a variety of exciting and innovative projects.
