ANNOUNCING SPIRITUAL PROGRAMS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE (JUNIOR YOUTH AGES 11-15 & YOUTH OVER 15)
The Baha’i Faith in Roseville wishes to announce the availability of the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program and the accompanying training, the “Youth Animator Training.” These two programs are part of a global initiative, approved and sponsored by the Baha’i Faith at all levels. It is also an ongoing program, dates for the program are determined as each class sets its own date requirements.

AGES 11-15 – JUNIOR YOUTH SPIRITUAL EMPOWERMENT PROGRAM – Engaging the individual during the period of junior youth in programs that seek to enhance their spiritual and intellectual capacities will anticipate the changes that will occur and prepare them to participate positively in the elevation of their lives as individuals and in their communities.
AGES 15 TO 29 – YOUTH ANIMATOR TRAINING – This program is designed to direct adolescents and young adults towards service to humanity. It is hoped that they will become channels for the flow of the powers of the human spirit: the power of unity, of love, of humble service and of pure deeds.
Friday, September 29 INTERFAITH FOCUS GROUP ON HOMELESSNESS
Community members are invited to participate in Human-Centered Design Research workshops to help us discover solutions towards homeless sheltering in Sacramento. These workshops are donated by professional facilitators at Uptown Studios at no cost to the City of Sacramento or the County of Sacramento.
Session 3: Faith-based and other potential shelter providers in the Sacramento area are invited to attend
How Human-Centered Design can help
Human-Centered Design is a process that has been used for decades to gain insight from audiences and design solutions. This process will help us build an awareness of what the business community, the faith-based community, and homeless citizens want and need. The outcome will be solutions that are meaningful to all participants and steps that can be taken to achieve the end goal of homeless sheltering.
Uptown Studios will conduct three Human-Centered Design workshops as Community Discovery Groups. Human-Centered Design will help deepen the relationships with community members, broadening the understanding of community issues, and see what the model for success might be in different populations. Our hope is that we will discover trends that overlap each of the groups we interview and we can build some solutions on the consensus that we discover.
The Community Discovery Groups will involve the following:
– Prep/Planning time for session
– 90-minute Design Thinking sessions
– Prepare final report with recommendations
We will be setting up three 90 minute sessions with these groups of diverse people:
1. Business Leaders – 20-30 participants
2. People using shelters currently – 20-30 participants
3. Faith-based and other service providers – 20-30 participants
