Youth Fest in Chennai: Youngsters for Social Change
By Father Mani Lazar SDB
Chennai, Apr. 22. Chennai Province Youth Fest 2016 took place at The Citadel & SIGA Campus in April. The event included three major events: 1) Blood Donation 2) Workshop on Social Themes and 3) Youth Talent Fest
Blood Donation: Fifty-four youngsters donated blood at the SIGA Campus. The blood donation camp was organized for the Government Maternity Hospital, Egmore, Chennai. Our sincere thanks to all the donors who, by this beautiful gesture, were able to give a meaningful start to this Youth Fest and bring timely help to patients in the government hospital.

Youngsters for Social Change: After the blood donation programme, around 310 youngsters (from 6 Salesian Parishes, 5 Don Bosco Youth Centres, 2 Salesian Institutions and 3 non-Salesian Youth groups) actively participated in the Workshop on Social Themes namely Your Rights & Duties, Your Politics and Your Environment. Mr. Deveneyan from Tholamai Foundation, Mr. Sunderajan from Poovulagin Nanbargal, Advocate Inbakumar, Mr. Sathish and Father Sebastian Vanathaiyan were the resource persons for this workshop. Father Mani Lazar moderated this event. At the end of the programme they wrote their resolution for Social Change and placed their signatures on the backdrop panel.

Youth Talent Fest: After the Serious Workshop on Social themes there was a Youth Talent Fest to bring out the talents of the Young. There were four competitions namely: singing - Celebrate the Differences; Dance - My Culture, My Pride; Mime - My Rights & Duties; Elocution - Youngsters for Social Change. It was a variety-filled, colourful Youth Talent Show and it was coordinated by Fr. Antony Christy. Thanks to all the participants, trainers and Salesians who made this day a meaningful one for the young.

The Vice Provincial, Father Deva Joe, presided over the function.
