Students of class 7th E involved in primary moral teaching for class 1 and class 2. They enjoyed the project by teaching songs, prayers, stories.
Class 6, 7 & 8 junior youth did lots of creative activities such as
This ability to sacrifice, to be generous and think of the well-being of another, is a reflection of the strength of the human spirit.
The film shows universal themes of love and sacrifice, hope and despair that remind us of our common humanity. It is wonderful to see how the film inspires courage for change in people everywhere, living in very different circumstances and try to make a choice.
Class 6 and 7 and 8 junior youth did lot s of creative activities related to IEO, for two months we had conversations about “Nature”.
Below are references from JYEP books which we used during our discussion
Additional passages for study and reflection:
“Say: Nature in its essence is the embodiment of My Name, the Maker, the Creator.”
Then we asked them many questions such as:
A: What are some signs of God in nature? How do these signs embody God’s Names: the Maker, the Creator? How do these signs express God’s will?
B: How does thinking about nature make us feel humble?
Stone Painting: Find a rock, Paint a rock, Hide a rock is the next step of service project on stone which we had been initiated since July. Junior Youth Empowerment programme is spreading acts of kindness through this service project.
What is the purpose of this group?
The purpose of this group is to paint a rock and hide a rock as random acts of kindness to create consciousness about environment. After having several conversations related to environmental issues the animators decided to start a service project and encourage junior youth to bring a rock and spread love and kindness to the mother earth. After painting the stones, students and animators hide stones in Janeshwer Mishra Park, invite others to search and share the pictures with the same stones along the message written on it.
2. Aluminum foil: Another service project animators have been doing is finding out the effect of aluminum foil to our environment. Animators of class 9 and 10 started to do a research and ask all junior youth of class 6, 7 and 8 to find out how many students are using aluminum foil every day to pack their food and it was found out that 81.3% students of junior section are using it.
3. Project on using paper bags instead of plastic bag
4. Making cards on encouraging people to save environment
5. Creative story writing
To form new team of Animators among class 8 students we had some activities with all of the students of class 8 and prepared them for the programme. So, we showed them Tedx talks in order to help them how to give the speech and improve the power of expression. We have also asked them to write an essay on" What is the role of Junior Youth for transformation of our society." We interviewed most of the students from class 8 who were eager to be an animator and in groups of 3 to 4 students we explained about the programme.
The participants of this group are junior youth between the ages of 12 and 15. This is a crucial period of a junior youth’s life as their consciousness is expanding and, day by day, they are becoming increasingly exposed to the forces of society.
The older youth that acts as a guide to the junior youth is referred to as an “Animator”. The role of an Animator is to assist the junior youth in developing their capacities, encouraging them to contribute to the betterment of society as well as encouraging them to question the world around them. Most importantly, an Animator must strive to become a true friend to the junior youth.
It is" Animators Training" for class 9th students and they were practicing and learning " Breezes of confirmation " ....
Junior youth groups can make a significant difference in communities, neighborhoods, villages and even the world at large! When junior youth become spiritually empowered, they take on tremendous amounts of responsibility to contribute to the betterment of society. A junior youth group has the potential to change their surroundings through the service projects that they do, keeping in mind that change is most sustainable when their efforts are consistent.
One of the most important part of the junior youth empowerment program is "SERVICE PROJECT". Where the junior youths share and discuss their thoughts on how to help make the society they live to be a better place. While discussing about the starting a service project the junior youth realized that dengue fever is one of the most dangerous virus which is widely spreading in the neighborhood and the junior youth plan to create awareness of how to prevent ourselves from these harmful disease.
