The International Young Adults Pathways subcommittee aims to to empower the spiritual learning and development of the future generation of Young Adults (aged 18–22) by creating a strong support system through mentorship and relevant learning with the application of Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings in daily life. The ages of 18 to 22 are one of the most crucial age brackets for Young Adults (YAs). Having finished school and moved onto further study or work, it is a period of great change and therefore crucial for YAs to have a greater understanding of Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings, when making key life decisions.
In light of the above, we believe that a variety of relatable initiatives and materials will better cater to this exciting and important phase and also support the transition into the YA programme. The International Young Adults Pathways subcommittee will develop content and initiatives for all YAs in this age group, (not only those who have participated in the SSE programme or have been raised in a Sai family).
Inspiring YAs to continue with their spiritual journey independently and with confidence is one of the core objectives of this subcommittee, to achieve this we will provide the YAs with:
- access to selected, relevant content, based on Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings
- information on Sri Sathya Sai activities within and outside Sri Sathya Sai Centres
- materials to enable them to keep in touch with Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings whilst they are away from their conventional Sai environment (SSE classes/Sai family)
- support YAs to re-integrate into centres, Sai-related and YA activities especially as they change cities for study and work
Phase One: Survey
To meet the vision and objectives above, the International Young Adults Pathways subcommittee will carry out a short anonymous survey with all YAs aged between 18–22.
By gaining a greater insight into the spiritual and practical needs of this age group we will be able to create initiatives on relevant topics and identify the best ways for these YAs to stay connected to Sri Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings.
All Young Adults in this age group are encouraged to complete this important survey by October 11th, 2020: Complete the Pathways Survey
