A board meeting held by YUVA executive board members on Sunday, 8 May 2016 has approved the application for resignation of National President Krishna Athal, and voted Sandya Seechurn as the incoming National President of YUVA.
Founder of YUVA, Krishna Athal submitted his resignation to the national board of YUVA due to his new venture as politician in active politics of the country. Respecting the code of ethics of YUVA, all board members welcomed the decision positively, though with sadness of losing a firm leadership.
On her appointment to her new position as National President, former YUVA District President of Pamplemousses Sandya Seechurn said, “It is with great pleasure and humility that I accept this new position. I hope that the Board has rewarded my devotion and commitment to YUVA. I’m deeply honoured and thankful to everyone for having trusted and voted for me as the new National President. In accepting this position, I hereby acknowledge all my responsibilities towards YUVA and engage myself to fulfil them to the best of my abilities.”
“I intend to work harder towards realising the vision of the organisation. I begin this new journey of YUVA with courage, commitment, passion and most importantly devotion to strengthen the pillars of our organisation and to maintain a transformational leadership,” she added.
YUVA wishes luck to both the outgoing national president for his new challenging venture, and to the incoming national president for keeping the good work of YUVA on.
The National Board of YUVA held a meeting on 30 January 2016 at YUVA Head Office. Office bearers voted Kritish Nudurchand as the new President for YUVA District Plaines Wilhems.

Did you know? [YUVA Operational Structure]
YUVA has a National Board where appointed members act as policy makers of the organisation. The National Board is constituted by a Chairman & National President, General Secretary, Head of Research & Development, Head of Social Media, 12 Advisors and 9 District Presidents. The Board plays a key role in coordinating activities: bringing potential partners together, facilitating the overall flow of information, helping identify where there are opportunities to collaborate, and supporting that collaboration.
Under the National Board comes the District Boards, where YUVA has appointed a President for every district of Mauritius. The District Presidents work towards creating local YUVAs in every ward/village/town found in their territories.
At the end, the local YUVA Presidents become District Board members, chaired by their respective District Presidents.
