Title: Young Adults in Action


1
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, lifes mission is fulfilled.
  • -- Sathya Sai Baba

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).

14
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.

15
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

16
SAIs Challenge to Youth
  • I want you to be leaders to protect the world.
    Leaders like lions, Self-Reliant, Courageous,
    Majestic and Just. Lion is the king of animals
    and I want you to be king among men.
  • - Sathya Sai Baba
