New Delhi, Aug. 21. The Don Bosco South Asia Vocational Coordinators' Google Meet was held on 13 August 2020 from 3 pm to 6 pm.  Father Gabriel Karunaraj [INT], South Asia Vocational Guidance Coordinator, coordinated the proceedings with 18 Salesians from across South Asia, to reflect on 'Fostering A Vocational Culture: Process of Understanding and Animating Vocational Guidance.'  
This meeting was to explore ways to give visibility and to create vocational culture in Salesian presences through the provincial, local and personal initiatives. In the keynote address Provincial of Panjim [INP], Father Felix Fernandes,  Provincial In-charge of the South Asia Vocational Guidance Dimension encouraged the members by highlighting the main elements from Article 37 of the Salesian Constitutions stating,''Vocational Guidance is the crown of all Salesian educational and pastoral activity.''

The Vocational Guidance Coordinators of the Provinces presented the reports from their respective provinces and specified the preference given to Vocational Guidance. The objectives, priorities, strategies, and the educative and pastoral interventions were enumerated in detail. The coordinators also presented the interconnection of the four dimensions of the Salesian Youth Ministry in the different works, sectors and pastoral animation settings of the Province. The sharing of experiences in the area of Vocational Guidance in different provinces was very enlightening and thought provoking.

Father Robert Simon, Don Bosco South Asia Youth Ministry Delegate, Coordinator of the Social Experience Dimension, and Secretary All India Don Bosco Education Society [AIDBES], provided the concluding remarks encouraging the participants to ''Be ambassadors of the Vocational Guidance Dimension and carry out this important dimension of youth ministry convincingly across all the local Salesian presences.''
