The concern and commitment of a group of Youth from rural villages led to understand the needs and challenges of the Communities as well as the marginalized groups. This further enhanced their capacities in addressing the issues of the communities and finally taken in to the shape of “Voluntary Service Organization” know as Star Youth Association (SYA) which acts as a participative platform for the stakeholders to share and support each other so as to lead better living in an inclusive environment with better sustainability and quality of Life (QOL).

Star Youth Association is Registered Under:

Ignited by five-teenagers and fuelled by NYK, the “Star Youth Association” thus came into being as a secular, non-profit, non-governmental, Voluntary Organization (VO) constituted with educated and dedicated youth, who then went on to excel both in studies as well as social work.

At present, SYA is managed by a team of professionally trained development workers who chose to remain with the community and area where they originally came from.

Initially, SYA was engaged in community orientated works like literacy, awareness, skill development, tree plantations, leadership training, work camps, youth conference etc. After a decade of youthful activities, SYA took a major leap and transformed itself from a mere elitist youth group to a group with larger agenda of rural development.
Its area of operation also increased from the single Velugode village to a total 125 villages in Kurnool and Anantapur Districts, at the time of writing this report.
