BAPS regularly hosts cultural seminars and conventions enabling thousands of youths to reconnect with their heritage. These seminars celebrate Hindu culture through festivals, informative sessions on history, and vibrant performances of dance, music, and theatre. These conventions are catered to youths that have been raised in different communities around the world. They offer relevant guidance for youths to form a sense of belonging to their cultural roots while learning to assimilate to the local communities in which they live. More than 8,000 youths attended a convention in Jacksonville, Florida in 2007. Similar conventions have been held in London, Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Vallabh Vidyanagar, and Nairobi.
