What Bahá’ís Do

Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program

Throughout Sri Lanka, there are young people making significant impacts within their communities in countless of ways. However, there are still numerous young individuals who are often exposed to the forces of materialism in society and remain marginalized or disregarded. What each of us should be aware of is that Junior Youth are the future and the present. They have a significant role to play in transforming society. These individuals should be taken seriously as their contributions will create healthy and vibrant communities. 


The Baha’i Community in Sri-Lanka believe that it is essential to strengthen and support these junior youths to contribute to:


  • Constructive Change
  • Shape Their Values & Norms
  • Continuously Foster Social Transformation
  • Analyze the Constructive and Destructive Forces of Society
  • Encourage junior youth along a path of selfless service to others and to guide them in developing their more and intellectual capacities
  • Enhancing Their Power of Expression


This is done through The Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program (JYSEP). The Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program (JYSEP) is a global movement and is program that is open to all young people aged between 12 and 15. This is a crucial period of a junior youth’s life as they leave childhood behind and undergoes profound change. In addition, their consciousness is expanding and, day by day, they are becoming increasingly exposed to the forces of society.
