Be the Change Austin
National Day of Service

Stand Together, Serve Together

Save the Date: Saturday, October 1, 2016

Be the Change is a day of national service inspired by Mahatma Gandhi’s teachings and his famous quote, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” It is organized by South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT). The Be the Change (BTC) youth leadership council is taking the lead on planning Austin’s BTC event. The event’s goals are to motivate individuals around the country to participate in community service, to develop and promote leadership in the South Asian community, to create and cultivate partnerships with local and national organizations and companies, and to build a sense of unity and teamwork within the South Asian Community in the United States.

In honor of Mahatma Gandhi, Be the Change is usually hosted around his birthday, October 2nd, so this year, the BTC committee has arranged for Be the Change to be held on Saturday, October 1st, 2016.
