In addition, they also participate in various activities such as cultural exchanges, homestays, and community service.

An important aspect of Yuva Sangam 2023 is the focus on experiential learning. Participants are encouraged to immerse themselves in the local culture and learn about the lives of ordinary people. This inculcates in them a deeper understanding of India’s rich diversity and builds empathy and respect for people from different backgrounds.
Yuva Sangam 2023 is the perfect program for youth who are interested in learning about India’s rich diversity and building empathy for people from different backgrounds.
