Welcome to Chicago!
The Kutchchhi Chicago Youth committee is working hard to come up with a fun, interactive, educational and memorable weekend for all youths and adults between the ages of 8-35. The overarching theme of the sammelan is “Panjo Rangeelo Kutch.” This literally translates to “Our Colorful Kutch.”
For those of you who have been to Kutchchh you will know exactly what this theme is referring to. The colors, the warmth, the hospitality is what makes Kutchchh amazing and unique. As Kutchchhi youths we have the responsibility of keeping Kutchchhi traditions and heritage alive and vibrant while passing it on to future generations.
We hope to incorporate this convention’s theme into our youth program by providing a colorful representation of what being Kutchchhi and more specifically what being a Kutchchhi youth truly means.
On this site you will find our preliminary schedule with some basic information regarding the youth convention plan. This will constantly be updated so keep checking back for updates and new noteworthy events.
Enjoy a room full of games and fun. This room is ideal for youths under 16. This room will be kept open for select hours during the convention. If you have spare time and want to get to know others in the convention, we suggest that you spend some time here playing your favorite games.
Reconnect with old friends and build new relationships in the kickoff of the youth program. Be ready to share random and fun facts about yourself and come prepared to be silly!
