95+19 Youth Conferences

Over the next few months, 114 youth conferences will be held at locations throughout the world. The purpose of the conferences is to inspire and empower a generation of youth who are transforming their communities through acts of service. In large part, these youth represent a group known as Junior Youth Group animators. Animators lead small groups (5 to 15, ages 11-15), through a training process, which will enable them to become youth leaders and a positive force for transforming the world.

Check back here periodically to see new photos from the conferences as they become available.

This video presents examples of Baha’i community development projects in Colombia, Canada, India and the Democratic Republic of the Congo.  Active projects currently exist in thousands of communities around the world. The implications of these projects for the future of society cannot be overestimated.   Transformations are occurring on the level of culture and youth are actively engaged as leaders in these projects.
