Across Australia young people are participating in an endeavour that strives to give them a voice in today’s society. Through the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program, these junior youth groups are enhancing their power of expression, sharpening their spiritual perception, analysing the constructive and destructive forces of society and changing their surroundings through the service projects.

She discusses its core values and shares some of the lessons learned in the group she animates. If you’ve already watched our 57 second introduction to the JYSEP, and are curious for more information, this video is comprehensive and well articulated.
