Y.O.U(Young Original Unique) Event is an annual event aimed at developing self awareness and self discovery among teenagers. We believe many adults go through life not knowing who they are, why they act the way they do and what unique qualities they possess to be fulfilled. They become a threat and cause most of the criminal vices in the society. With our activity based training methods, designed specially for teenagers, we would refine and produce healthy, resilient, self aware young people of the society which we believe is the bedrock of growth and development in any society.
Our maiden edition was a success with our 60 young people attending. We made sure the event was owned by the teens. All our volunteers were teenagers and youths. One of the major highlight was the event decoration done by teenagers despite the limited resources. This shows alot of creativity within if they are given the space to explore.
