Hindu Students and Youth Network.

The Hindu Youth Conference.  HYC is the flagship event of the Hindu Students and Youth Network, organized every four years.  The Hindu Youth Conference is one of seven conferences that comprise the World Hindu Congress, which aims to bring Hindus from around the world together to discuss and deliberate on a host of issues.  HYC is aimed at discussing issues of particular interest to the organization, action, and inspiration of Hindu youth throughout the world.

A group of committed undergraduate and graduate students, young entrepreneurs and professionals, and dedicated activists.

The rejuvenation and revitalization of Hindu Dharma throughout the world rests predominantly on the shoulders of the next generation of Hindus, who will assume the leadership of the Hindu resurgence.Yet, there remains a shortage of Hindu youth in established Hindu organisations worldwide, especially in responsible positions of leadership.  HSYN was initiated to reverse this alarming trend.

HSYN’s vision is to strengthen Hindu identity for the future.  Our mission is to actively involve Hindu Youth into playing a vital role in the Hindu Resurgence and Renaissance. HSYN will tap the boundless energy, creativity, and ideas of Hindu Youth and fully harness their potential to work for the resurgence of Hindu society on a global basis.

Hindu Students & Youth Network aims to provide a proper platform and effective network for all Hindu students and youth organisations that are currently active in their countries to share their experiences and provide encouragement to each other. In addition, HSYN will rope in experienced individuals to share their experiences in these endeavours with current as well as aspiring individuals who desire to mobilize Hindu youth into the movement. This will help and encourage Hindu youth to work for the Hindu resurgence in the future.
