Surat is a 501c3 nonprofit organization working to strengthen the panth through gurmat inspired social activism generated from the youth. We strive to educate Sikhs educators by connecting them to the roots of their faith, create a platform for social activism, and provide a forum where friendships and support can flourish.

Each year, we welcome world-class thought leaders to the conference who share their experiences as well as their stories with the attendees. Our mission is to give our attendees the opportunity to hear from, meet, and network with leaders and visionaries.

“For the past several years, Surat has provided me a unique platform to learn and engage in thoughtful dialogue with fellow attendees. Aside from the fact that Surat is a weekend which allows us to be with some of our closest friends and of course, embrace further networking opportunities, the theme is what brings me back each year”
