Cultural Heritage Youth Leadership Programme

2019 ias preliminary exam test series

The Ministry of Culture had mooted a project proposal titled “Cultural Heritage Youth Leadership Programme (CHYP)”.

This scheme envisaged enriching awareness of Indian culture and heritage amongst the youth in order to promote, understand and develop fondness for India’s rich cultural heritage, with a view to develop appropriate leadership qualities amongst youth.

The focus of the programme was to be on less privileged children residing in backward areas by interacting with them in vernacular languages for their better understanding.

However, while initially, the scheme was being run on its own, the Ministry is reworking this proposal and integrating this with “Ek Bharat Shreshtha Bharat (EBSB)”.
