Label: Purpose & Activities

GYM connects youth from diverse backgrounds to bridge their differences, to grow as leaders, and to work together for the good of their communities and the world. GYM offers real-world leadership development, with many participants meeting at residential youth camps around the world. Youth leaders are able to engage in interfaith dialogue, plan projects, and build knowledge and skills together. Members have the vision of thinking globally and acting locally. They will be working locally as peace multipliers, and GYM will be a platform for youngsters to be part of the global youth family and to bring out individual and group potential into creating and building interfaith harmony. They plan to have monthly house meetings where members can come together and also host camps: 3 day, 1 day, and half day camps. GYM is not a single independent—it’s a network. Members of the group work full-time in seven schools, part-time in several colleges, and engage in interfaith work in each place.
