They are called to lead a saintly and happy life thus to excel themselves in the world around. The movement aims to develop youth in spirituality and faith in the context of Catholic teachings and beliefs, thereby ensuring a solid foundation to the church.

The SMYM champions and lives out its mission to follow the traditional beliefs of the Syro Malabar Church (SMC) for the Kingdom of God and Society, to strive for the integral development of the youth as well as the bringing together the youth of the SMC
