The S.L.Y.O Inland Empire chapter was formed in 2013, under the supervision and advice of Mrs. Shamila Karunanayaka.

The members of our chapter includes Sri Lankans born in Sri Lanka as well as America from the age of 17 and up from Riverside and Corona. In having found this chapter we hope to connect with our brothers and sisters with who we share intrinsic culture and do what we as the youth of Sri Lanka, can do to help our motherland in whatever way possible whether it be big or small.

We hope to remind and be reminded of our basic values and beliefs that we as Sri Lankans share, to encourage youth just like us to join us in our adventure to help our nation and to help others just like them to succeed in life, to be leaders and to set an example for generations to follow.
