My son has been attending various classes at YICG's Saturday program for the past 3 years. He looks forward to the classes which are structured and fun with plenty of social interaction for all ages. They have a wonderful after-school program too which he attends. The staff is run by volunteers who are very professional and sincere.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing my child getting enriched in his knowledge about India and Vedic cultures and a sense of pride in knowing and learning about it.

I am glad that they exist in our community as I have a child who I feel gets positive influence by it. I am also speaking for other parents who feel proud of having such organization in our community.
