It’s not about you or me, it’s about us as one


The DFW Hindu Temple Youth Group is a group that gets together to carry out activities and make a contribution to the community. In the youth group, members have the opportunity to work with others and develop important communication, cooperation, and leadership skills. Members have the opportunity to apply for leadership positions, which require previous volunteering experience and participation in the Youth Group: President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer.

Connect With Youth

The Youth Group currently consists of 30 members and is looking to increase their numbers. So feel free to join as it would greatly make a positive impact on the surrounding community.

Give Back to the Community

The Youth Group is an organization that donates to many charities, but the most common, frequent, and recent charities we have picked were the Samaritan Inn and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Founded in 1984, The Samaritan Inn started out as an emergency night shelter that could only accommodate 10 men each night. Over the last 30 years, The Samaritan Inn has evolved into a comprehensive homeless program that helps willing people gain dignity and independence. St Jude Children's Research Hospital, founded in 1962, is a pediatric treatment and research facility focused on children's catastrophic diseases, particularly leukemia and other cancers. The hospital costs about US$2.8 million a day to run, but patients are not charged for their care. St. Judes as mentioned previously doesn’t charge its patients for care which is one of the most important reasons why we chose this specific place.
