Junior Youth

Junior Youth

Between the ages of 12 and 15 we all transition from childhood to youth to adulthood. Young adolescents—referred to as “junior youth”—experience rapid physical, intellectual, and emotional changes. During this short and critical three-year period, ideas about the individual and society that may very well shape the rest of their lives are formed.

Popular views of this time of life regard this age as full of confusion and crises. Such thoughts foster conditions in which undesirable patterns of behaviour are spread. However, many 12-15 year olds are selfless young people with “an acute sense of justice, eagerness to learn about the universe and a desire to contribute to the construction of a better world”.

The junior youth spiritual empowerment programme is open to all. The aim of this programme is to assist young people to develop their own abilities to understand themselves and the world and thereby to learn how each of them can contribute to the well-being of the world they are about to inherit.
