Youth Outreach program at JLF 2018
Jaipur Literature Festival is so much more than just a meetup of literature celebrities and their fanboys/fangirls. The idea of organizing such festivals is to mug up everything that has happened so far, listen to each other’s experience in the fields of literature.
In addition to literature, Jaipur Literature Festival also organizes Youth Outreach Program every year. The theme of the program changes with years but the aim and motive behind the program stay the same.
At JLF 2018, theme of Youth Outreach Program is Emotional Intelligence (That sounds sooooo cool). The Program is organized in collaboration with a Delhi based NGO- Yuva Ekta Foundation.
