Brief History

  • VYF was formed in 1987 under the guidance of a young monk of the Ramakrishna Mission order, Swami Someshwarananda. He motivated a group of young individuals who wished to make a difference in the society based on the man making ideas of Swami Vivekananda

  • Aiming to make our life more meaningful, we decided to become proactive and take action rather than simply observing. Our goal was to involve the youth in bringing about social change by bringing together the educated and the underprivileged for mutual empowerment

  • We started by offering non-formal evening classes to the children of the neighboring slums and over the next five years, we expanded to five other locations throughout Mumbai

  • Over the years, VYF involved itself in various areas of community service such as relief and rehabilitation work during natural & man made calamities, crisis intervention, vocational training and youth camps
