In 1979, the district coordinator of Nehru Yuva Kendra (NYK) – Ministry of Youth Affairs & Sports – Government of India has been instrumental in the c Read moreonception of the Star Youth Association (SYA). For this, he was inspired by the enthusiasm and vibrancy demonstrated by the youth of Velugodu village. He further advised the youth to mobilize themselves and form an association in order to serve their own village in the best possible manner. The membership has grown from 15 to 82. This resulted in the birth of SYA on 10 November 1980 under Societies Registration Act, 1980, FASLI. It is also equipped with all the essential legal documents including Foreign Contribution (Regulation) Act, and 12A & 80G Income Tax Acts.
