Our Girl’s Rising Youth Leadership and Empowerment Club aims to assist young girls to navigate through a crucial stage in their lives. Those in their youth possess altruism, a sense of justice, eagerness to learn about the universe, and a desire to contribute to the construction of a better world. This program helps youth form a strong moral identity and empowers them to contribute to the well-being of themselves, their communities and the world at large.
Elements of the program:
- Increasing Spiritual perception
- Expanding consciousness
- Strengthening the power of expression
- Reinforcing moral structures
- Releasing capacity for service
- Establishing bonds of friendship
How we achieve this:
- Service and social action
- Exploring literature
- Social interactions, field trips and fun activities
- Creative expression through the arts
By developing their innate qualities (virtues), their intellectual capabilities and their capacities for service to society, the participants come to see that they can become agents of positive change in the world.
The program adopts a participatory mode of learning where the facilitator and participants learn from each other. Groups of participants engage in activities such as artistic expression, discussion, drama, cooperative games, study of literature, story telling and acts of community service.
The youth program is part of a worldwide movement initiated by the international Baha’i Community. The group will explores principles such as equality be- tween men & women, oneness of mankind, elimination of all forms of prejudice, leadership but is not a formal religious education program. It is open to all, subject to parental approval. Junior youth groups meet on a regular basis and there is no written homework.
