The engagement Team will consist of people who wish to participate in a long term commitment. The engagement teams will actively pursue and see through projects and programs taken up by Youthlink
The Support team is made up of short term volunteers and helping hands and provide support to the engagement teams. They are given specific tasks, freely moving through different engagement teams according to current needs.
Their focus will be the development of the youth of Auroville and connection to youth oriented organisations all over the world. It would work with the schools of Auroville in particular to inform and educate about the opportunities for development and growth provided by Youthlink. It would also engage with the larger community of Auroville and the bioregion to better integrate the local and community youths.
Will create and maintain a current list of resources needed for Youthlink to function. It would be the primary interface to experts, mentors, partner organisations, and providers of financial and in-kind support. One main task of this team would be to maintain an opportunities listing for the youth.
Will coordinate, manage and deliver events, seminars, and more. Both directly and in collaboration with other educational organisations, it would be the team in charge of ideating and proposing programs and projects for the benefit of all youth in Auroville.
To keep a connection with all volunteers and team members who have participated in YouthLink over the years. This can grow to become an incredible resource for the youth community
The core team will constitute the permanent core of the organisation. It will be composed of dedicated members who are committed to the ongoing processes of YouthLink, as well as the decision making which is done through an agreement process
Sometimes being young can be tough. Many young individuals feel the need to have more support systems when facing new challenging situations, moving forward in life.
Many experienced Aurovilians are happy to help guide and nurture aspiring youth in Auroville. From accounting to carpentry to mental health, we maintain an accessable database of willing mentors and their wealth of knowledge.
We welcome people from all ages and walks of life to come together and create a safe environment, where we can freely express ourselves while engaging in diverse activities.
We organise events and programs which embody and promote unity, while encouraging self development and growth.
