The Transformative Power of Jr. Youth Programs

Jr Youth programs began as an effort in social and economic development. Due to their great success in empowering youth ages 11-14 all over the world, the Universal House of Justice decided to promote them as a fourth core activity in the institute process. Oftentimes we forget about this age group, or marginalize them as troublemakers that have to be dealt with. This is a shame because they really can become leaders of their community. This is a video about successful Jr. youth programs in North Carolina. This can be replicated everywhere.
