Subject: Formation of YUVA Tourism Clubs in CBSE Affiliated Schools.

🔺Tourism industry is a vital part of our country’s economy. It also plays a major role in showcasing our country’s rich heritage and culture. India is a young nation. The potential and power of its demographic dividend can be harnessed to promote responsible and sustainable tourism in the country.

🔺The Hon’ble Prime Minister has highlighted Tourism as a medium that fosters national integration and unity amongst people from different parts of the country. Accordingly, the Ministry of Tourism has initiated establishing YUVA Tourism Clubs as a part of the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrations.

🔺The vision is to nurture and develop young ambassadors of Indian tourism who would become aware of tourism possibilities in India, appreciate our rich cultural heritage and develop an interest and passion for tourism.

🔺These young ambassadors would be catalysts for promoting tourism in India.

🔺Participation in Tourism Clubs is also expected to facilitate development of soft skills like teamwork, management, leadership besides encouraging adoption of responsible tourism practices and concern for sustainable tourism.

🔺Through tourism clubs activities, students would gain exposure to the rich diversity of India and value its rich civilization. Tourism would enhance their sense of belongingness towards the nation.

🔺The Ministry of Tourism has shared a ‘Handbook for Schools for conduct of Tourism Clubs. The Handbook reiterates the purposes, operational strategies along with specific guidelines and suggestions for conduct of various activities.

🔺The school will select 25 student members to this club. The students will be from grades 7 to 12. The club will be headed by a teacher coordinator.

🔺Though the school will select the students, but in case if a child wishes to get enrolled as a member to this club then he/she can communicate the same to the respective class teacher.

🔺The club will be formulated in the reopening week of the school.
