A great talk by the late Bhai Avtar Singh on the current woeful state of Gurmat Sangeet and Kirtan in gurdwaras around the world today. He never shied away from telling it like it is. Thankfully his son, Bhai Kultar Singh, is carrying on his tradition of calling a spade a spade.

|What Do I Want to Do When I Grow Up?|

Who should attend?
Your parents want you to be a doctor, lawyer
or engineer, but you don't have a clue what
you want to do with your life.
What is the presentation about?
Parents, friends, media, society. Everyone has
an idea on what kind of person you should become. However, what do you want to be
when you grow up? What does our Guru
have to say about this? This session will
explore these questions and how you can
begin to answer them.
Who is the presenter?
Until Kulvir Singh figures out what he's going
to do when he grows up, he helps an
international mining company develop and
execute their corporate strategy. He also volunteers with various Sikh and mainstream organizations in Toronto, Canada, including Toronto Sikh Retreats, Habitat For Humanity – Brampton, and the William Osler Health

We often lament the state of Granthis at our Gurdwaras. In many ways, it's a chicken and egg situation. Why would we pay for unqualified Sikh preachers, but if we aren't willing to pay a decent wage, how will we ever attract talent individuals to make full-time parchar a career choice? The Sikh Research Institute has chosen to break through the excuses by creating a new project entitled "Granthi: Empowering a Sikh Ambassador". See the request below for a project interim to assist with the project.
GRANTHI PROJECT INTERN
How do we bring about lasting positive change in our Gurduaras? What are the Gurduara Sangat and Granthi needs? Where can we give a voice to the needs of the Sikh community?
If you are passionate about empowering Granthis and Gurduara Sangat, then the Sikh Research Institute (SikhRI) has an exciting opportunity for you!
SikhRI is currently seeking to fill the position of Granthi Project Intern. The "Granthi: Empowering a Sikh Ambassador" project strives to revive the Sikh tradition of "Guru's vazir" (Ambassador of the Guru). This program will provide Granthis with a forum to express their voices and care giving qualities while focusing on having a grounded knowledge base. It aims to bring Granthis and the Sikh community together to engage in dialogue and address community issues. Internship is for five months starting July 15. Time commitment is for 15 hrs/wk, minimum. Upon successful completion, a stipend and/or class credit will be rewarded.
