The Youth Expo, an annual event of Don Bosco Institute (DBI), Guwahati, is organized jointly with Rajiv Gandhi National Institute of Youth Development, Sriperumbudur, Tamil Nadu. The theme for the Youth Expo 2013, was ''Capacity Building Training on Life Skills, Citizenship and Peer Education for the Youth of North-Eastern Region''.

''Youth are the Leaders of Tomorrow; so Nurture them Today'', the words of Fr. Johnson Parackal, Executive Director, DBI, in his welcome address, during the inauguration of the 'Youth Expo 2013', set the tone for the week long Expo held at the DBI premises, Guwahati, from 8th-14th February, 2013.

The week long Expo ignited the minds and spirits of the participating youths, from the different corners of the North-Eastern states. The programme, according to the different groups of participants, has helped instill in them the power of unity. The different cultural exchanges have helped them to know and be together with each other, which they believe has ignited the process of social change.

Fr. V. M. Thomas expressed his views on the importance of holding such programme continuously in the region, by which the right leadership skills of the students can be built up. He said, ''You are our future and you are a transforming power.''

The grand finale of Youth Expo 2013 highlighted some colourful presentation of the traditional songs and dances. The occasion also witnessed the release of a book titled 'The Secrets of High Achievers - 17 Lessons from the World's Great Achievers', authored by Fr. John Parankimalil.
