VIVEKANANDA KENDRA VIDYALAYAS
AN EDUCATIONAL ENDEAVOUR WITH A DIFFERENCE
Can you really stay aloof from such a noble endeavour as this ???
Does your heart feel for the nation and do you want to make a difference in the Nation’s life?
Are you one of Swami Vivekananda’s chosen hundred?
Have you heard Swamiji’s clarion call to the Nation: ‘Arise, Awake and stop not till the goal is reached’?
Have you realised the importance of man making and nation building education that Swamiji so strongly advocated in his lifetime?
Are you among those who believe there can’t be anything nobler than these ideals an organisation should stand for?
If your answer to any of the above is ‘yes’,
what are you waiting for then?
Come and associate with Vivekananda Kendra & Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalayas. Come and join Vivekananda Kendra or its schools (VKVs) and certainly you will never have to regret for it.
* VK and VKVs are the places you should go to.
* VK and VKVs are the places worth investing your time in.
* VK and VKVs are the real places of service worth investing your money in.
* VK and VKVs are the places that need conscientious people like you for support and patronage.
* VK and VKVs are the places for those who care about real service to the people of the nation.
* VK OR VKV MEANS PURE SERVICE TO THE NATION, NOTHING ELSE.
VKVs are Vidyalayas with a difference. With the noble ideals of Man Making and Nation Building these schools of Vivekananda Kendra have really come to stay. They do not only strive for academic excellence but also involve teachers and students in Man Making and Nation Building activities. These are centres of extra-ordinary fervour and excellence in terms of value education, instilling in students the sense of righteousness, discipline, duty to the society and the Motherland. VKVs also cultivate in the students love and respect for the nation’s age-old and rich cultural heritage. On the other hand, the students in VKVs garner the maximum benefits from the vast resources of the nation’s glorious past as well as the IT age the country is striding into presently, by means of disciplines such as Yoga and Computer Science. The VKVs also lay equal emphasis on campus development, its beautification and provide students with all facilities for their all round development.
Vivekananda Kendra is a spiritually oriented Service Mission. As a voluntary organisation, it serves the humanity after the ideals of Swami Vivekananda. It serves the nation through its Man-making and Nation-Building projects such as Educational projects like APT and VKSPV, Cultural and Sustainable Development Programmes and through more than 225 branch centres located across India.
Vivekananda Kendra runs 18 CBSE-affiliated English medium Vidyalayas under one of its Educational projects “Vivekananda Kendra Shiksha Prasar Vibhag” (VKSPV) in the north-eastern region of India. Currently VKSPV has opened its schools in Assam & Nagaland. These schools are known as “Vivekananda Kendra Vidyalayas” (VKVs). Some of the schools are up to Higher Secondary level. VKVs have been recognised by the people of NorthEast India as some most reputed and sought-after educational institutions providing quality education to the masses in these two states.
For more information about our Vidyalayas, log on to our websites www.vkspv.org and www.vkendra.org.
VKSPV invites application for the posts of teachers in the VKVs of Assam & Nagaland. Apart from required educational qualifications, the organisation seeks in the candidates a zeal for social service and an urge to serve the motherland India in its northeastern Himalayan corner.

Are you among those who Swamiji had in mind for awakening the Indians to the MISSION of our Great Motherland?
"A hundred thousand men and women, fired with the zeal of holiness, fortified with eternal faith in the Lord, and nerved to lion’s courage by their sympathy for the poor and the downtrodden, will go over the length and breadth of the land, preaching the gospel of salvation, the gospel of help, the gospel of social raising-up, the gospel of equality."
Come, dedicate yourself to the service of the nation as a Full-time Worker of Vivekananda Kendra Kanyakumari – a spiritually oriented service mission.
If you do not have a family to look after (or free from any family obligations) and if your are ready to dedicate yourself full-time to the aforementioned task, then you are the ideal choice for the mission Swamiji had placed before us.

"They alone live whose lives are in the whole universe. The more we concentrate our lives in limited things, the faster we go towards death. Those moments alone we live when our lives are in the universe, in others; and living this little life is death, simply death, and that is why the fear of death comes."
