Who we are

Youth Empowering Serviceā€“Jesuits is one of the ministries of Andhra Jesuit Province of the Society Jesus which serves the young people (15 to 25 years) especially the disadvantaged ones of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, India.

We firmly believe that all young people irrespective of their educational, social, religious and economic background are capable of fulfilling their potential for better and meaningful life. Unfortunately, due to the unjust structures of Indian society, lack of opportunities, resources, guidance and support, many young people are pushed to poverty and impoverished life situations.

We want to light the aspirational torch of many last, lost and least young people who do not have the resources and the guidance to better life. Our priority is to accompany the underprivileged and unorganised youth of our society by equipping them through vocational training courses, skill building training in grooming and personal conduct, English for fluent communication, psychological and social skills for an image makeover, through which they become confident and resourced to move forward with hope.

We march towards the social, economic, psychological and spiritual development of young people especially the poor, marginalized youth (15 to 25 years) and strive towards holistic development of a young person who is in our care.

We work towards contributing our mite in making a difference in the lives of young people and their empowerment. We want to be a beacon of light and a ray of hope in the lives of young people in need. We are convinced that instilling hope and courage in young people and creating a support system will empower them to shout to the world:YES

YES- I have Dreams.

YES- I am capable of fulfilling my Dreams.

YES- I Can and I Will be the Dream I want to be if I am given an opportunity.
