Don Bosco Youth India

The Don Bosco Youth Movement - a special expression of Don Bosco's pedagogy. Don Bosco realised the importance of getting together to form groups. In Don Bosco's life that seemed to arise spontaneously, as an expression of his temperament which was naturally inclined towards being open to people and making friends. Bringing young people together in groups is a kind of preventive project that Don Bosco wanted to establish. The Don Bosco Youth Movement India, is part of Youth Animation of South Asia and is a member of the International Salesian Youth Movement.


SYM Rocks!

SYM Rocks! is a musical written for boys between the ages of 9 and 16 years. It is themed around Don Bosco's world-renowned pedagogical method, the "Preventive System". While presenting the Preventive System to the audience, the musical also intentionally publicizes the Salesian Youth Movement (SYM), a special expression of Don Bosco's pedagogy. The story unfolds in an interesting and gripping manner, with characters and situations that the audience can easily and immediately identify with. There is never really a dull moment, with emotions running high throughout the duration of the musical.

SYM Rocks has been scripted by Haydn Dias, a past pupil of St. Dominic Savio High School. Haydn also wrote the lyrics, the vocal arrangements and produced the backing tracks.
