Baha’i Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program
May 18, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Baha’i communities all over the world love to create, sponsor, and encourage grassroots, neighborhood- and school-based junior youth groups.Designed to help adolescents between the ages of 11-14 develop into focused, happy, and productive teenagers and young adults, junior youth groups teach the crucial moral, spiritual, and ethical skills society often fails to transmit to this important age group.
In between childhood and the first stages of maturity, junior youth have unique developmental needs. They begin their preparation for the future, and start to think about the meaning of life, asking themselves the big questions about identity, purpose, and destiny that each person tries to answer in early adolescence. That’s why Baha’is expend their volunteer energy to offer these classes.
