Middle school youth are in a time of transition. They develop new powers and emotions, start to see contradictions in the world around them, and the opinions of their peers become very important. They need a safe space to get together with a group of friends and seek answers to their questions, develop their potential, and learn to help others.
Here’s what you would do:
Training: 6 Saturdays sessions starting January 30, 9:30 am-5 pm
Discussion-based small group study including the following questions:
What are spiritual capabilities?
This project is not only about academic teaching, but also about helping youth realize that they are noble beings who can work for unity and justice.
How do we teach these capabilities to youth?
Learn about existing materials and design activities for youth. Lead a Youth Group (with a college student co-leader): 3 hours/week Help youth develop three types of capabilities in weekly group meetings:
Power of Expression:
Reading comprehension activities, learning to articulate their ideas
Stories of youth around the world that develop world citizenship, how to make daily choices based on spiritual principles
Service & Social Action:
youth learn to analyze social forces influencing their community, they then plan & carry out their own community service projects.
