YIAC_featureYES! i am the CHANGE (YIAC) is the flagship program of YES FOUNDATION. Launched in 2013, YES! i am the CHANGE is a nationwide mindset transformation program to inculcate the value of responsible citizenship amongst youth through the impactful medium of films.

In 2015, YES! i am the CHANGE emerged as the World’s Largest Social Film Movement with participation of over 5 lakh individuals from 2,500 cities and towns across India.

As part of YIAC 101-Hour Social Filmmaking Challenge, participants make 3-minute short films on social causes which form an open repository of invaluable communication resources for the use of Non-Profits. Most importantly, the process of participation and exposure to various social causes leads to the inner transformation of the youth, builds association with causes and makes them agents of social change.
