The SLYO was created to positively impact the lives of youth today within the Sri-Lankan and the American cultures.


The Los Angeles chapter was the inaugural chapter established under our organization. With a humble start of less than 15 members, this chapter has expanded over the years to include a large proportion of the Sri Lankan community in Southern California. Its impact, however, has been global. Their most notable contribution to date was raising funds to construct a library for an underprivileged primary school in Sri Lanka.

The US team also serves as Global HQ and assists with organizing, structuring, and fundraising for events put on by other chapters.
