We are the California Sikh Youth Alliance/National Sikh Alliance (NSA), an organization committed to empowering Sikh youth and developing a stronger, more tight-knit rapport amongst youth in our community. We believe that with your support, we can make a lasting impact on the lives of Sikh youth.
The Sikh community has a rich cultural heritage and a strong commitment to social justice, equality, and service. However, we recognize that Sikh youth often face unique challenges in today's rapidly changing world; from navigating their identity and combating Western cultural assimilation to overcoming a lack of ethnocultural and ethnolinguistic identity praxis, our youth need guidance, support, and platforms to thrive.
The strength of any community lies in its youth. By empowering Sikh youth, we are investing in a generation that will contribute to the betterment of society at large. When we provide opportunities for sports, mentorship, leadership development, and cultural preservation, we foster a community that embraces its heritage, roots, and identity.
Annual Sant Jarnail Singh Powerlifting Tournament:
NSA organizes the Sant Jarnail Singh Khalsa Bhindranwale Powerlifting Tournament every year, where hundreds of young Sikhs across California participate. This is one of our efforts to organize the community around sports and fitness.
