Resolutions of the 1st World YA Conference, 1997
Resolutions of the 2nd World YA Conference, 1999

The future of the country depends on the skill and the sincerity of the youth. Therefore, the necessary enthusiasm and encouragement must be generated among the youth. All my hopes are based on the students, the youth. They are very dear to me. Sathya Sai Baba, Sathya Sai Speaks IX (old edition), 34, 184.

When an organization has started, it has to lay down for itself certain rules and regulations. But our rules are of a different nature altogether. Our rules emphasize that members must first practise what they stand for. Whatever you desire others to do, you must first put into daily practise sincerely and with steadfastness. ...

The organizations must be such that members find them congenial places to deepen their spiritual discipline (sadhana), to cultivate their virtues, to overcome their ego, by contact with workers who are free from the least trace of that deadly poison. Sathya Sai Baba, Sathya Sai Speaks VI, 7, 35-36.
