Young Adults in Action

The age span 16-30 is crucial for that is the period when life adds sweetness to itself, when talents, skills and attitudes are accumulated, sublimated and sanctified. If the tonic of unselfish service is administered to the mind during this period, life’s mission is fulfilled.

-- Sathya Sai Baba

challenges and action plans
Challenges and Action Plans

Ensuring Sustained Participation of Young Adults in all wings of the Organization:

Center members, the Regional YA Team, Regional Officers, and youth should make every effort to support the YA program, plan joint activities and motivate the group.

Often, Young Adult groups experience peaks and valleys in levels of activity. This could be due to the transient nature of Young Adult populations (students and young professionals relocating), exam schedules, burn out, lack of encouragement).

Challenges and Action Plans

Increasing the participation of Teen Youth:

The transition between SSE Group III and the Young Adult program is often not an easy one.

  • Age-specific plans can be incorporated into the Young Adult program to encourage the participation of Teen Youth.
  • Older Young Adults need to be trained and prepared to run such programs throughout the Region.

Challenges and Action Plans

Increasing Communication Among Young Adults:

Because of distances and imbalance in concentration of Young Adults, effective communication is a challenge at regional and national levels.

Within a region, Young Adults meet once a year and therefore, the unity of the group is difficult to maintain.

  • In the Southeast, we are aiming to increase the frequency of these activities by having smaller Retreats
  • At the national and regional levels, the frequency of communication needs to be increase via conference calls and web communication
