Youth Program

Dhaan is excited to introduce a youth chapter to foster the spirit of giving back to the community among youth through leadership and skill development programs.  The chapter will identify ways of contribution, lead and execute programs all led by youth with support from adult volunteers. This involves various opportunities within Dhaan where youth can earn service hour credits, skills, and experience by participating and leading programs.

Initial Project:

  • Speech and Debate Coaching :
    • Amit Konda is leading the Dhaan Youth Chapter and actively spearheading youth activities starting with Speech and Debate training program.  
    • Amit Konda has been competing in regional and national Speech and Debate for the past 6 years, ranking on the national level.  With him as Speech and Debate instructor and mentor, Dhaan has been able to start a nationwide speech and debate online classes.  The classes are  focused on teaching communication and debate skills to middle school and elementary school students in North America.  
    • Starting Fall 2020, Amit has conducted four training sessions, each session consisting of 10 classes over the course of 10 weeks. Amit has trained around 40 students through these sessions.  All the proceeds from the training session were donated to Dhaan. Through these classes, Dhaan Youth Chapter was able to raise $3,800 and continues to add to that total with each passing session.
