CPPR Academy is launching a fully funded Youth Leadership Fellowship (YLF) to develop future leaders who will inculcate the spirit of liberty and freedom in the political and economic spheres.20 young individuals between the age of 20-27 years will be provided this fully funded fellowship. 

Currently, the youth make up for below 35% of Kerala’s ageing workforce.
