Youth Center

The Youth Centre, also known as Peaceful City, behind the Town Hall. It is a place where youth of all ages and backgrounds can collectively and constructively come together to relax, work, learn practical life skills and play. We welcome people who want to spontaneously take initiative and build up the community. Whether it is with helping and maintaining, managing the kitchen and cooking for the people working there or with building sustainable community spaces or sharing whatever skills people may have. Most of the projects are self-motivated, there is no ONE person in charge, best is to drop by the Youth Center to know about the current activities. Every Wednesday and Saturday evening there is the YC Pizza Night, which is generally a good time to drop by and see the place

Youth Yucca

The Youth Yucca program targets youth of Auroville turning 18 as well as returning Auroville youth. 

The target audience will be people who already have life experience inside of Auroville as a child and are now becoming adults, and we aim to provide an orientation program which takes into account the extensive experiences they have had in Auroville so far.

Currently under incubation phase, YouthLink along with Entry service, Yucca team, and motivated individuals, aim to have the first session in the first half of 2022.
