Delving into Sikh literature has long been the avenue with which Sikhs augment their knowledge and understanding of Sikh principles and history. Often used as an adjunct to the study of Gurbani, reading various works on history, philosophy and principles has allowed Sikhs to connect with and gain a greater understanding of the Guru. The SYANA Sikh youth symposium strives to foster this dedication and passion to learning amongst our Sikh youth.

Open to all youth ages 6-22, the symposium offers an opportunity for Sikh youth to engage with Sikh literature, spend time with their families discussing various topics and then present their new found knowledge in the setting of their local sangats.

Those who are successful in securing first place at their local chapters are advanced to a regional event where the winners are then presented at the annual International gathering. While public speaking and a friendly spirit of competition are also critical components of the Symposium, the greatest success is in targeting Sikh youth to become passionate about self-learning.

Those who participate in this event will invariably walk away with greater knowledge, a deeper understanding and hopefully a thirst to continue learning about our great heritage.
