Building Dynamic Leaders for Tomorrow

Lakshminarayanan, from a small village in Kurnool district, Andhra Pradesh, was once on the verge of suicide. Only in his early 20s, he thought his problems were unprecedented and that the only way to be free of them was to be free of the world. Luckily for him, someone sent him to do the Youth Leadership Training Program (YLTP) at The Art of Living International center in Bangalore. Ten days later, he says, his life changed.

Established in August 1999, the Youth leadership training program has a unique syllabus. While most programs around the world focus on a specific area of the human personality, the Youth leadership training program is holistic in its identifying the dimensions that constitute the actual human personality. Not only does the Youth leadership training program focus on building personality and communication skills, but it also works on the emotional and spiritual aspects of a person. Participants are inspired to volunteer for rural projects, and the fruits of the seeds sown in the classroom can be tasted by the community as a whole.
