Youth Empowerment Program
Winter Youth Initiative
Who can participate?
Youth ages 15-25ish, including seekers!
Friday, December 18, 2009 at 5pm to Tuesday, December 22, 2009 at 7pm
El Dorado County - 3671 Forni Road, Placerville, CA
This Winter Youth Initiative is under the auspices of the Southwestern Regional Training Institute of the Baha'i Faith. It is specially planned for youth in El Dorado and Sacramento Counties to receive training in either:
- Ruhi Institute Book 1 - Reflections of the Life of the Spirit
- Ruhi Institute Book 3 - Teaching Children's Classes, Grade 1
- Ruhi Institute Book 5 - Releasing the Powers of Junior Youth
The training and experience gained will arm youth to return home with vital skills needed to play a key role in helping their cluster's advance to the next stage of growth. The main focus for this year's initiative will be on learning how to promote the spiritual education and empowerment of the children and junior youth within our society and to better understand the spiritual forces governing our lives.
It has been learned that acts of service are more successful if performed as a 'team'. Youth are strongly encouraged to apply as a team of two. It is not necessary for a youth to have embraced the Baha'i Faith in order to participate. This initiative is open to all youth who are interested in gaining skills to serve humanity - invite a friend!
- Minimum age is 15. Participation and commitment to ALL 5 days.
- Willingness to learn and work with others in a cooperative environment.
