Diana’s Story

February 28, 2016, in Videos > Interview, by

In this video we learn about Diana who mentors a group of teens in Chapel Hill, North Carolina in the United States. She talks about what it’s added to her life. “I’m part of their life. They’re part of my life.” As a mentor and alongside others, she is changing her community.

The Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program helps youth between the ages of 11-15 to develop their language skills and powers of expression. In addition, it helps build capacities for moral reasoning and an ethic of service to others. The program, currently happening in Baha’i communities worldwide, combines study, mentorship and social action. Watch a 1 minute explainer video here.
