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.
