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.


Thursday, August 25 DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CLERGY WORKSHOPS

Domestic violence is an ongoing epidemic in our culture and in our faith communities. Religious leaders are often turned to by Victims of domestic violence as the first resource for understanding and help. This is both good and bad news. On the one hand, it is good in the sense that victims intuitively feel they will be well received, believed and understood in turning to their clergy. On the other hand, it is bad because most clergy are inadequately trained and qualified to respond in a helpful manner. In fact they often unintentionally do more harm than good. But that does not have to be the case. Training is available.

A day long training event is being offered at one of four different locations around the greater Sacramento area. Each event is from 9:00 a.m. till 3:00 p.m. Lunch is included. Choose your date and reserve your spot. Please see our flyer for the goals of the training.  Please RSVP here.

June 30 – July 28 – August 25 – September 15th.

September 6 – October 20 CULINARY TRAINING

Looking for at-risk young adults interested in culinary training

Do you know any 18-24 year old young adults from at-risk backgrounds who want to gain the skills to get a job in the food/restaurant industry?

Friends:

Fresher Sacramento is starting its first training cohort on September 6 – October 20 for at-risk young adults to learn the basic skills to gain first jobs in the industry. Working with funding from the City of Sacramento Gang Task Force to reduce violence, we have partnered with La Familia to provide wrap around services, including GED completion if needed, workforce skills development, career counselling, etc. There is no charge to participants for this training! Transportation vouchers will be available.

The training takes place at La Familia’s new Maple Campus near Fruitridge and 99 and includes 106 hours of instruction. Participants will be introduced to front of the house and back of the house skills, while also gaining ServSafe certification. The Art Institute of California, Sacramento, is also sponsoring this training and will put its stamp on their certificate of completion. Chef Pamela Chokan-Quetzal, an AI instructor, is supervising the program, with instruction by Chef Luis Ramirez, who personally knows the background and needs of youth who are at-risk.

We will also provide support in gaining employment, either with Fresher Sacramento as we expand our production of prepared meals for neighborhoods in need or in other restaurants and food industry settings.

Please reply to rabbidavid@freshproducers.org with referrals, or have candidates contact Chef Luis directly at: luismaxfit@gmail.com

Please help us bring these services to more neighborhoods in need and at-risk individuals: Contribute Today!

Thanks for our partnership in creating a nutritious cycle of health, wealth and skills for life.

Sincerely,

Rabbi David, CEO
