Junior Youth Empowerment Program

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.

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.
