Community Projects

Community Projects and service to the community is an integral part of our curriculum for our children in Youth Group. 

Our students learn all aspects of Indian culture including philosophy, values, religion, history, geography, art, traditions and festivals.This will help students uncover their cultural identity, its application in their life and the multicultural society they live in. Bal Vihar Youth are involved in many community activities that consolidate their sense of community responsibility and integrating multiple cultures and values.
