The Organisation’s Youth Programs encourage young adults, aged 18-35, to undertake projects to inspire and motivate their individual spiritual journeys, to acquire good character, and to practice the five universal human values. The youth are an integral part of the organization. They take the lead in many service activities, including community service projects, organized globally under the “Serve the Planet” initiative. In 2014, for example, more than 4,000 volunteers from 70 countries participated in such projects. Since the youth are the leaders of tomorrow, the Sathya Sai International Organization (SSIO) launched the landmark, “Sathya Sai International Youth Leadership Program” in 2015 to focus on youth leadership development.
