Union Ministry of Youth launched nation-wide initiative – Fit India Youth Club on 15 August 2020.
Its aim is to harness the power of youth to create mass awareness about the importance of fitness across the country.
The Fit India Youth Clubs bring together fitness and voluntarism in a unique way.
The 75 lakh volunteers of Nehru Yuva Kendra Sangathan and National Service Scheme, along with Scouts and Guides, NCC and other youth organisations will come together to register as Fit India Youth Clubs in every block in the country.
It would be under the aegis of a district unit and each member will motivate people from the community to take up fitness activities of 30 to 60 minutes in his or her daily routine.
The clubs will organise and encourage schools and local bodies to organise one community fitness programme every quarter.
