India saw a massive rise in the number of social sector fellowships in the last decade – making service to society as a lucrative career option for youth. Hundreds of such fellowships have brought thousands of young talent into the sector.
As thousands of young people become part of the social sector fellowships, most of them come in with idealism to create change and incur huge opportunity costs of leaving corporate career; there is a growing observance of mental health issues and inner imbalance in this population segment. This leads to deep consequences not only on their personal well-being but also in the social impact they create by wounding their ability to bring values to their work.
This Action Learning, we are coming together to talk about the crisis where caregivers need care. For the social sector in India, to sustain committed people to work on complex issues over a long term it is important for it to invest in their emotional-inner well-being.
This gathering is a part of a research project undertaken by Dalberg Advisors and The Slow School with Youth Alliance and Kavyata.
