What is FOBANA doing about our youth??

FOBANA has a number of programs specifically geared for our young generation. First of all, the Executive Committee amended the constitution to pave the way to allow more activities for the youth. The amended constitution says,

"Promote participation of youths in social, cultural, educational and scientific activities in North America and Bangladesh. Encourage and assist the youths for future leadership role."

Then the organization guided the host organizations for the past couple of years to include more and more programs for young children. For instance,

  • Talent competition
  • Eassy Competition
  • Usher and Volunteer Program

During 2009-2010 term, FOBANA Executive Committee formed a Youth Sub-Committtee and empowerd the committee to work only on the Youth Program. In the coming years the Youth Sub-Committee will launch a number of prgrams for our young generations.
