Sri Sathya Sai International Leadership Program for Sai Young Adults

en Español   На русском

In His Divine discourse during the Sri Sathya Sai World Youth Conference in 1997, Sri Sathya Sai Baba exhorted, “As future citizens of the world, the youth should awaken to their noble heritage and honor their sacred duty to promote the welfare, progress, and peace of the world.” On January 14, 2000, Baba proclaimed, “The youth of today are the future leaders of the nation and architects of the new society. The future of a nation depends on its youth. The primary duty of the youth is to render service to society. The physical and mental strength of the youth is the foundation on which a nation is built.”

In 2007, at the conclusion of the third Sri Sathya Sai World Youth Conference, Sri Sathya Sai Baba blessed an important initiative in the development and integration of the International Sai Young Adults Program, within the Sri Sathya Sai International Organization (SSSIO). One of the important roles was to provide opportunities for Sai Young Adults to interact and learn from senior officers and members of the SSSIO so that the Sai Young Adults of today would be ready to become leaders in the future.

Continuing the steady evolution of the Sai Young Adults Programs, the Sri Sathya Sai International Leadership Program for Sai Young Adults (SSSILP) began formal development in 2014 and with His grace, close to 2,300 Sai Young Adults from 47 countries have graduated from the SSSILP.


The SSSILP provides standardized leadership training to Sai Young Adults from all over the world, based on Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings. It consists of nine online modules. The modules cover the foundations for leadership in the SSSIO, starting with the life and teachings of Sri Sathya Sai Baba; an overview of the SSSIO; and the structure and function of the various wings of the SSSIO.

Other modules focus on fundamentals of spirituality as it relates to leadership, based on Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s Mahavakya or great instruction, “To Be, To Do, and To Tell.”

SSSILP Summer Showers

In 2024 we are blessed to present a limited series titled SSSILP Summer Showers!

A series of five engaging sessions tailored to delve deeper into topics derived from feedback from SSSILP alumni. The series aims to foster personal and professional development, mental health awareness, and healthy relationships. Each session will follow a structured format, including sharing experiences and practical guidance on dealing with various life challenges.

SSSILP Summer Showers 2024 aims to inspire Young Adults to explore a more advanced understanding of the purpose of spirituality in various aspects of their lives. By combining insightful speakers and engaging discussions, we believe this series will have a positive and lasting impact on the YA community and make a meaningful difference in the lives of YAs.

Each session within the SSSILP Summer Showers 2024 will begin with a sharing of experiences by the speakers. This will create a relatable and personal connection with the audience.

Subsequently, the sessions will focus on providing guidance and strategies for dealing with the specific issues discussed in each session. With 30-minute breakout discussion groups at the end of every session, the ultimate goal is to inspire, motivate and reignite the spark of Divinity within the YAs.

Each session will occur once only (in English and Spanish) and will require you to register using the links which will be provided a few days before the session. Seats are limited to 108 participants per session. View the schedule here.
