Youth Service San Diego (YSS) is the volunteer youth group for the Hindu Community Center (HCC) for kids of age 10-18. 

The group serves as technology and  youth (social) experts for the Hindu Community Center by being actively involved in the website development, social media engagement as well as create student-led volunteer programs that serve the local community needs and positive environmental change. 


YSS  events bring people together, build awareness of social needs and also work on charity programs that donate food and toiletries to the homeless, as well as organizing Indian fine art demos, and other events.


Joining YSS is a great way for youth to connect with their culture and make new friends,

and it's also a good way to fill any community service requirements for high school graduation or for college resumes. YSS volunteers who contribute 30 hours of service during a year will receive a certificate at the end of the volunteering year

Hi! I found YSS to be a great way to connect to my culture, serve my community, make new friends and have fun while I make my impact to on this world.


My Grandfather told me that I should "leave the world a better and more beautiful place than I found it". I hope to make him proud.
