Junior Youth Groups
To respond to the needs of youth and teens throughout the world, the Baha’i community offers the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program. This program is aimed at building the capacity for moral reasoning and channelling the energy of young people between the ages of 11 and 14, and is carried out in schools, community centers, and neighbourhoods across the world.
Through activities guided and initiated by the Bahá’í community, young people gather regularly to explore themes and questions characteristic to the period of youth, to act on their developing sense of responsibility towards building community, and strengthen their understanding of the importance of faith and tenacity to a life of service. With a vibrant spirit and focused determination, youth from all backgrounds that engage these activities build their capacity to respond with wisdom, courage, and humility in addressing the ills currently facing society.
Training and accompaniment is available for those who wish to become Program animators and volunteers.
