Mission Statement

Dedicated to creating social change and opportunities for South Asian youth to realize their fullest potential.

Description

Founded in 1996, South Asian Youth Action (SAYA!) is the only organization of its kind working to develop the skills, talents and leadership potential of South Asian youth living in New York City. Through a range of supports and services, SAYA! provides South Asian youth ages 11 to 19, with safe spaces to learn, grow, play and contribute to their communities-and each other. Each year, more than 300 young people-with roots in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Guyana, India, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri-Lanka, and Trinidad-take part in SAYA!'s center and school based programs. Among the services provided by SAYA! are academic and career preparation, recreational and artistic opportunities, individual and group counseling, and leadership and organizing activities. Through its programs and advocacy efforts, SAYA! works to create broad social and systematic changes that positively impact immigrant youth.
