YouthKiAwaaz.com or Youth Ki Awaaz is an Indian English-language, youth run news and views blog and mobile service founded in 2008 with focus on Politics, Society, Environment and more issues - creating a channel for young Indians to voice themselves. An emerging online and mobile views platform  and a pioneer in collaborative journalism, YouthKiAwaaz.com also runs an online journalism internship program. It has emerged as one of India's most read youth opinion websites. Youth Ki Awaaz also runs India's first ever mobile service for young people to dial-in a number (Phone number: 09310952952) and record their opinions.
The platform was started by Journalist and Entrepreneur Anshul Tewari in 2008 due to the huge gap between the mainline media and views of young people in India, and due to lack of ways for a youngster to express himself/herself easily on issues that matter. Moreover, one of the core initial issues that the platform targets is breaking the stereotypes related to young people being apathetic towards issues.
The main motive of the platform is to engage young people in ethical journalism and provide a hub for free expression of young voices - combining journalism with technology.
The website aims at being the voice and ears to young people in India and help them reach out to like-minded people, to work on constructive solutions for global concerns by making best use of social media tools and online journalism skills – mobilizing and engaging young people in participatory and collaborative journalism.
One of the other core missions of the platform is to advocate the lack of access to freedom of expression for people around the world, especially in developing and under-developed countries. Youth Ki Awaaz is one of the foremost organizations in India working on advocating freedom of speech and expression in India.
The platform runs a widely popular "work-from-home internship program" with the aim of training young people on the right skills to express themselves on crucial issues in the right way, and also develop professional communication skills in the process. The program has been widely covered by the mainline media and continues to be one of the USP of the platform.
In 2013, Youth Ki Awaaz launched India's first and largest mobile youth line for anyone and everyone to dial-in a number and record their opinions on issues they are passionate about, as a way to make it more accessible for young people to voice themselves.
Youth Ki Awaaz also runs local level programs and workshops on how Information and communication technology can solve the problem of lack of freedom of expression around the world.
The organization is also the foremost platform for social good organizations and non-profits to engage young people through social media advocacy, a concept brought up by Youth Ki Awaaz itself.
