The primary aim of our programs focussing on youth is to help these young minds develop social, moral, emotional, physical, and intellectual competencies. Through various programs and activities we actively promote "Youth Leadership" and train young individuals to achieve the ability to analyse their strength, work on their weaknesses, set personal goals and gain motivation, self-confidence and courage to carry them out. We believe that "the youth of today is the driving force of tomorrow" and working together, helping them channelize their energy and guiding them in the right direction will bring about an enormous change in our society and help ensure a better tomorrow for everybody.

All our programs and actions are designed in a manner which requires initiatives and efforts not only from us but also from the members of the community we work with. Together we try to take collective actions and bring about solutions to common or community specific problems. We work at grassroots level and are committed to bringing about a change – economically, socially, environmentally and culturally thereby contributing to the development of the community as a whole.
