Welcome to the Gayatri Pariwar Youth Group!
The Gayatri Pariwar Youth Group was established on Vasant Panchmi (24 January 2010) and has been steadily growing since. We currently have youths between the ages of 6 and 16 that attend the youth group on a regular basis.
The aim of the youth group is to promote healthy learning through fun and enjoyable weekly sessions. We are not here as a religious youth group, but we are here to try to answer questions that all youths have and to provide a learning opportunity to youths who want to learn aspects of the Indian Culture and how it relates to the modern day life.
The youth group takes place on Saturday afternoons between 3pm-5.30pm. We have three age groups; 7 & under, 8-13 year olds, and 14 & over. At the moment we are incorporating delightful activities like; Arts and Craft, Games, Discussions, Debates, Presentations, Literature Reading, Art, Yoga, Tabla & Keyboard Sessions, Drama, Singing, Confidence Building Sessions and many more activities for all to enjoy.
We try to make the weekly sessions fun and enjoyable for everyone who attends, but we also incorporate the learning aspect. The youth group is open to sensible suggestions about activities from the youth that attend, so the youth groups are set around what the youths actually find interesting. We also try to work on a four-weekly rota where the topics are normally covered around; Confidence Building, Spiritual Development, Performing Arts, and one week is usually for giving the youth a chance to prepare & deliver a presentation about something they find interesting, if they wish to.
Many of our older youth members like to take on extra responsibilities like helping to arrange activities, preparing presentations, writing web reviews, or generally taking the lead for different activities. It gives them a chance to develop their skills too.
We hope for the Gayatri Pariwar Youth Group to grow bigger over time with more activities taking place daily or weekly. We've already had a youth camp and we hope to have another one soon. This summer we'll also be looking to have a play scheme & day trips possibly.
We welcome you all to attend, and to bring your family & friends too. If you wish to contribute some time to help support us, then please do get in contact, or pop in on a Saturday afternoon if you're in the area.
All of our youth group leaders have also been CRB checked.
