" Youth is a stage in human development when the personality is bursting with energy, enthusiasm and dynamism. This is also a phase in life when receptivity and retentivity are at the optimum. What they require is a clear vision of a goal in life and exercises for the cultivation of the right values of life to enable them to mould their personality and harness their inner resources along constructive channels. This systematic preparation alone can equip the youth to face the challenges of life with a smile " .

This essential training of youth for leadership in life is being successfully accomplished through the Chinmaya Yuva Kendra (CHYK) – the Global Youth Wing of Chinmaya Mission.
The Chinmaya Yuva Kendra (CHYK) came into being in May 1975 as an offshoot of the week-long teenagers' camp organised by Chinmaya Mission, Bangalore during a Geeta Gnana Yagna session there. The sixty youngsters between the age group of 17 to 25 years, who had participated in the camp and evinced a keen interest in our spiritual culture, formed the nucleus. Chinmaya Mission Bangalore which was already running successfully some teenagers' 'Study Groups' consolidated the position and placed it on a firm foundation. This new venture into the delicate world of the volatile youth is the outcome of the sustained interest shown by a small number of inspired youngsters towards “Vedanta” as a Science of Personality Development and Human Potential and pioneered, interpreted and elucidated by Poojya Gurudev, Swami Chinmayananda.
