Girl Rising Leadership & Empowerment Club, Age 11 – 17, Sept – June

Alternate Fridays at 6:30 – 8:30 pm, Age 14 – 17
Alternate Saturdays at 4:00 – 6:00 pm, Age 11 – 13

Our youth spiritual empowerment program is open to young girls aged between approximately 11 and 17 with the goal of assisting them to navigate through a crucial stage in their lives. Those in their early adolescent years possess altruism, a sense of justice, eagerness to learn about the universe, and a desire to contribute to the construction of a better world.

The program helps youth form a strong moral identity and empowers them to contribute to the well-being of their communities and the world at large. Program runs from Sept – June. Email with inquiries about how to join the club.

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:

1. Service and social action

2. Exploring literature

3. Social interactions, field trips and events

4. Creative expression through the arts

By developing their spiritual 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 junior 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 writ- ten homework.

There is a suggested annual donation towards supplies etc. However if your family cannot afford it, please consider volunteering your time to volunteer at NECS.  Email with inquiries.
