To me, YKG has been an outlet in which we take problems in the world and actively work to make some kind of impact. Service has been a release for me, building who I am as a person and making me who I am today. Once we cooked hot meals for women who were victims of domestic violence who got occasional meals and resources from a women's shelter. This project opened my eyes to a degree of resilience that I aim to embody today.
To me, YKG means being part of an amazing group of girls that do great things together. It is a group of people that love each other like a family and care for not only themselves, but also for the community around them. One of my favorite projects was spending time with children in the Little Friends For Peace organization. Seeing their faces light up at the sight of new company, gifts, and games was a rush of happiness that I’ll never forget.
YKG is kind of like a calm road with autumn leaves. Its is full of adventure and it's really exciting to work with sisters and really impact the world. I really want to do something with environment and needy people. This organization, it's the best family ever.
YKG is a group of adoring people who surround you and help you through your journeys. Not only does YKG guide each other, we support the economy and service others even if they don’t ask. I love YKG because it is basically a young group of women who want the world to be a better place. You learn about a problem that is faced by the whole and you are doing something about it. No matter how little or big of an impact you are making.
YKG is a place I can give back to my community and have fun while I do it. It's where I get to be with my sisters and do what I love. YKG's five pillars: courage, unity, humility, and sewa inspire me to be my best every day. We are like a family that works towards helping others through sewa: selfless service.
I love different type of projects every year. Every year, we learn so many new things while helping our community. I am grateful to be a part of YKG family.
YKG is such an important part of my life. Being a part of it for the last 6 years has taught me so many things. I have learned teamwork and cooperation, I have learned the importance of humility and courage, and I have learned how to be more confident. I feel that the project that spoke to me the most was the Mental Health Workshop. In many communities mental illnesses are taboo and not spoken about, this project created a safe environment to discuss mental health.
YKG has been important to me because it has taught me about myself, the world around me, community, and the importance of taking action. As I have gotten older, YKG has been an integral part of shaping my character and views of the world. It enables me to make real impacts on issues that I’m passionate about. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to have all of our ideas mesh together when we design our projects.
YKG for me is a journey which allows me to experience life in so many interesting ways. By serving the community, the world and its people, I feel that I am a better person......one project at a time! I felt connected to most was Seva truck which fed many families during a cold December afternoon.
To me, YKG means to be true to yourself, help others and make the community around you a better place. To me, the most important YKG pillar is courage. You can save lives if you believe in yourself. You can do anything. I am most excited to help the homeless.
honesty- because if you lie, you are lying to yourself and making yourself feel bad. I am really excited to be a part of YKG.
YKG is an organization that allows me to do what our religion strongly advises us to do which is helping others in need. The most important YKG pillar to me is courage. Anything we do in our day-to-day lives takes courage. I most excited to possibly volunteer at a homeless shelters, pet shelters or other places that could use our help.
To me, YKG means being independent and changing the world as a group. To me, the most important YKG pillar is Sewa— it is important to help others and show them that they matter. I am most excited to help the elderly.
To me, YKG means a way to reach out to people and help people in your community. To me, the most important YKG pillar is humility. You have to be humble to be a good person. I am excited to help those in need.
To me, YKG means that we go out of our way to help people who are in need. To me, the most important YKG pillar is unity. No matter what race, skin color, caste you are, you are, you are united as a community and work to help each other. I am most excited to help the animals.
To me, YKG means practicing key values such as Sewa, while making my community a stronger place. Helping my community is honestly the best way to give back for all it has done for me. It has given me a home, neighbors, friends and family, so I should try help it the best way possible. I am most excited to help with pressing issues this year, such as Black Lives Matter.
