Indian Association of Merrimack Valley Sponsored Youth group

  • Based on several requests from many IAMV members, IAMV has started a youth group to provide our kids a chance to develop community spirit and leadership abilities, complete volunteer work for their college application and have fun.
  • Youth group has an executive team consisting of President, Vice President, Treasurer, General Secretary and Public Relations Lead. This would introduce our kids to various challenging roles and help develop leadership skills.
  • We are planning 5-7 activities as part of the youth group, which consists of:
    • Volunteer work, e.g. group is scheduled to do a 2-hour volunteer work at Sutton Hill Center every month.
    • A program to celebrate a day with special significance to Indian community, e.g. Independence Day, Republic Day or Gandhi Jayanti.
    • Entertainment: for example, a day at amusement park, movie or a get together at IAMV member’s house.
  • Based on above plan, youth group will be required to meet 10-14 times a year assuming at least one meeting prior to an event and the event itself.
  • Primary goals for the youth group are as follows:
    • Develop community spirit; give them a venue and opportunity to bond with each other.
    • Develop leadership abilities. This would be useful for their college application as well as any community activities.
    • Integration of Indian community with the local community, such as town or local event planners.
  • We cannot do any of above without interest and involvement from each one of you. Parents of eligible youth, age 13-18. Please contact Vibhash Desai at vmdesai@comcast.net
