Inbubation

YouthLink creates templates and co-hosts various types of educational programs and workshops designed to enable the youth to learn about their interests and passions in a safe environment. It is crucial to us that education is a call from within, with a desire to learn that is then supported. In the last years we have conducted many workshops that emerged from spontaneous requests.

Mentorship

Auroville Youth Mentor Program by YouthLink is an opportunity for adults to connect with youth in any capacity. We invite all Auroville residents and Auroville units/services/projects to offer mentorship to youth and integrate them into our community. 

 

Senior citizens have the experience and wisdom that the younger generation could benefit from. This, combined with personal guidance and professional mentorship could be valuable to the Youth and their involvement and participation in the community. This program is a great opportunity to connect with our youth and pass down your knowledge and expertise. 

 

Working with youth can demand patience, it is a significant responsibility. YouthLink is here to offer support for the linking of the right youth to a relevant mentor, as well as facilitate introduction and define a clear agreement (with parents if the youth is a minor) and to receive feedback that ensures the mentoring process continues to improve for the youth in Auroville.
