Young men and women, the world’s good fate, world’s progress is dependent on the transformation of the youth, today. Only when the youth transform themselves with good character, will the world be able to experience ideal virtues.

The Sathya Sai Young Adults Programme (SSYAP) seeks to deliver this powerful message to the world through young adults worldwide. The Programme encourages men and women, between the ages of 18 and 40 (previously 35), to lead purposeful lives in service of their families, communities and countries by learning and practicing the spiritual principles revealed by the life, teachings and work of Sathya Sai Baba. Primary importance is given to holistic character development through both personal transformation and selfless service.

The International Young Adults Committee is established under the auspices of the Prasanthi Council and works with its guidance. The International Young Adults Committee comprises of the International Young Adult Coordinator and the 11 Zonal Young Adult Representatives. Together, they coordinate and lead the SSYAP around the world.

Following the resolutions of the Sathya Sai World Youth Festival in July 2016, where around 3,000 young adults from 50 countries gathered in Prasanthi Nilayam, seven sub-committees were formed, each comprising Sai Young Adults from around the world. These Young Adults are talented and motivated people who have the yearning and skills to serve.

Their efforts will help build a firm foundation by which these resolutions can be implemented and managed as long-term initiatives. The ultimate goal is to actively encourage and inspire Young Adults around the world to progress on their spiritual journey.
