The Mahamandal has been working among the youth since 1967 with the 'man-making, character-building' ideas of Swami Vivekananda, with a view to nation building. It has spread to many States, having started in Calcutta, and now there are over 300 units of the organization. Several thousand young men from cities, towns, and especially villages, including very remote ones, are coming forward from all walks of life. They get training at the hundred-odd youth training camps of the Mahamandal round the year. They understand that the condition of the poorer sections of the country is extremely bad, that the nation as a whole needs to be built anew. And that it is the duty of the youths to accomplish this task, which begins with the building of their own life and character. On the strong foundation of character alone a nation can be built.

Those who desire to join the camp must understand the purpose of the camp and apply only if they are serious.
