Now, That I Am 15…

January 25, 2016, in Videos > Short Film, by

“Now, that I am 15…” is a short video about the impact of the junior youth program on a group of youth in Budapest, Hungary. It was created by Nadji Hedjazi.

To respond to the needs of youth and teens throughout the world, the Baha’i community offers the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Program. This program is aimed at building the capacity for moral reasoning and channeling the energy of young people between the ages of 11 and 14, and is carried out in schools, community centers, neighbourhoods across the world.
