The program was started in 1997. The program is driven by our Yuva Kendra volunteers. Yuva Kendra (high school) volunteers meet on the last Sunday of the month at the Bal Vihar location and prepare sandwiches to serve approximately 150 homeless people. An adult volunteer delivers the sandwiches to Julian Center (Homeless shelter) located at 546 W Julian St, San Jose. Map The Seva starts at 8am sharp and ends at 9am so students are free to go to BalaVihar classes. This is a great way to introduce Seva to our youth.
Note: Youth volunteers will receive community service credit.
Please consider encouraging our young mission members to volunteer to prepare sandwiches. You can also sponsor ($250 or a portion of it) this event for your special day in the family (Anniversary, Birthday, Memory of elders etc).
All Youth Sandwich Service will happen at Lincoln High School, San Jose.
The students are invited to participate along with their grade level classmates. The schedule of class assignments is as follows,
