Congratulations and respect to the Tibetan Youth Congress (TYC) on the commemorative date of its founding. In 1970, the TYC was established in Dharamshala (Northern India) with the blessing of His Holiness the Dalai Lama. 315 delegates from 16 different Tibetan communities in India and Nepal attended. The founding of TYC in 1970 came at a time when the first group of young Tibetans who had received a balanced modern and traditional education were graduating from schools and colleges. TYC’s constitution, aim and objectives, and organizational structure were decided, and the first Central Executive Committee (CENTREX) elected to lead it. The movement gathered momentum with set-up of regional chapters, called Regional Tibetan Youth Congress (RTYC).
