TTGA Yuvatha Registration Form


About Yuvatha

Yuvatha is a branch of the Triangle Telangana Association (TTGA), geared towards the youth in our community. Its goal is to promote the engagement of our youth in the local Indian and the greater Triangle community through various volunteer opportunities and activities. These activities will help youth in the following ways. They will develop an understanding of our culture and the traditions that are a part of our heritage. They will be able to learn about the current issues that the local community is concerned with and will be presented with the opportunity to address those issues. This knowledge and opportunity will not only allow them to become an active member of the community but will also allow them to have a voice in it. They will learn about the importance of service and giving back to the community. They will be able to work with a group of like-minded individuals, which will allow them to develop a strong social foundation. They will also foster leadership skills and learn about the importance of teamwork, which will help them in their professional lives.
