ComMutiny The Youth Collective is a coalition of youth led and youth engaging organizations across India

working towards promoting empowering spaces for youth leadership, called the 5 th   space . Our hypothesis
is that there are four legitimate ‘spaces’ that young people primarily occupy, that of 1) family 2)
livelihood/education 3) friends, and 4) leisure. While much of their time as young people is spent in these
spaces more often than not these spaces are not governed by them. Beyond these four spaces, there is
another space called ‘The 5th Space’ that young people also occupy, where they truly discover themselves
as they engage in social action. It is a space that young people govern and take leadership in. An exciting,
adventurous, safe space that equips young people to understand themselves, address conflicts, build
cross-border relationships, clarify their values/stances and stand up for their rights as well as those of the
larger community.
The 5 th  Space experience is central to all the work at CYC.  Our strategies include a) Developing powerful
public engagement initiatives and journeys b) Producing and disseminating research and media products in
the field of youth work c) Building coalitions and collaborations with national and international organisations
to strengthen the field
