The SLYO also learns, becomes accustomed and interculturally communicates with other ethnic backgrounds, opening up the door to new heights and opportunities. The present and future of our societies depends on the decisions and actions made towards the community, in the form of service, public works, mentoring and many other controlled recreational projects. The committed volunteers obtain leadership with nationally recognized standards of excellence. The Sri-Lankan Youth Organization represents a strong union that is increasing its global impact from within the Sri-Lankan Community to the American society, and eventually the world.
