‘YA Challenges and Divine Teachings’ was the theme of a National YA Retreat in Mendes, Rio de Janeiro, from 20th to 23rd of June 2019. Organised within the framework of the National Congress of the SSIO in Brazil, the activities sought to inspire YAs to appreciate various stages and situations of life in view of Sathya Sai Baba’s teachings. The activities included study circles, conferences, spiritual songs, plays, and yoga.  The YAs presented a summary of the Go Green Conference held in Prasanthi Nilayam in 2018 and enacted a drama with the theme ‘Save the Planet! If not you, who? If not now, when?’. The retreat ended with a melodious musical offering.
