Salesian Youth Ministry seeks to educate for life in the cultural and social environment of the young person. Convinced that education and human and religious values go together, it educates through transmission of values, and transmits values by educating. Through its ministry, it aims to help youth build and find their place in a community based on truth, fraternity, peace, justice and responsibility.
As the Youth Ministry Team of the Salesian Province of Mumbai, we work to recognise and connect with the aspirations of the young, welcoming them – seeing our youth ministry not as a product, but as an experience of relationship – both within the formal and non-formal educative field. Our vision sees the young as ‘children of God’ deeply loved by Him, whoever and wherever they are.
The vision of our Province is that we present a dynamic and energetic youth ministry team with SDB leadership and membership; which develops a real partnership with co-workers; which has an impact on the local, national and international scene; and which provides formation programmes so that all who engage with us also experience Salesian formation at some level.
