Seattle Youth Board Elections

Please welcome Seattle's new youth board for 2022-2023 school year. Every year, we follow a democratic process for the board elections with candidates providing their vision for the board and fielding questions from all of the youth club members and parents. This year was no exception. We had all the propsective board members provide a video response to the prompt: How will they improve diversity and inclusion within the youth club? We played all of the video responses at the election event and had each candidate take questions from the audience. In the end, we are happy to announce the following youth board for the Seattle branch which takes effective immediately. Yashita Tanwar - President Nikhil Chivukula and Ananya Suthram - Co-Vice Presidents Vibha Velturi - Secretary Yashwant Piratla - Head of Relations

DESC donor appreication

DESC is a local organization which helps house homeless in apartments until they are able to be self-sufficient. We have supported DESC through our 5k walkathon in 2021 raising $5k for the cause. In addition to this, our youth recently participated in a gratitude exercise by writing thank you note cards to some of the donors of DESC - around 100 cards. In addition to thank you notes, volunteers made hand-made bracelets to include with the thank you cards to show our gratitude to the donors.

Atlanta - Worker's Appreciation 2022

Atlanta VT Seva children and adults participated in the 76th Independence Day of Bharath with zeal and patriotism. Independence Day holds special significance in all our hearts. Not only does August 15th mark the day India gained independence from 200-year-old colonial rule, but Independence Day also serves as a reminder of all the good virtues, pride, rich cultural heritage, unity among diversity, and fertility of the land which we must all feel proud to call our homeland India. It's also the day when we commemorate and pay homage to the courageous sacrifices made by our freedom fighters. Atlanta VT Seva youths and adults infused with patriotic feeling made 100 tri-color bracelets, ribbons, flags, and wristbands. They also nurtured 150 plus herbs - Tulsi, Mint, and Curry leaf as a symbolic representation of 3 colors of the Bharath flag. In addition, 50 plus youths and adults participated in ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ by joining in the Flag March. Sonali Bendre, film actress was leading the flag and our Atlanta VT Seva team was following her in the flag march. It was an amazing feeling of patriotism. Our youths raised $1400 by selling tricolors ribbons, bracelets, and flags. They also sold 3 herbs Tulsi, Curry leaf, and Mint. They also did tricolor face painting which was a huge hit at the event. All proceeds will go for the education of the visually challenged kids of Nethra Vidyalaya. It’s very gratifying and fulfilling experience for all of us. Jai Hind!
