Junior Youth Empowerment Programme in CMS

Mrs. Farida Vahedi, Head, Character Education & Youth Empowerment

CMS has integrated the Junior Youth Spiritual Empowerment Programme, into its school curriculum. This has provided a unique opportunity to nurture the capacities of thousands of junior youth to transform themselves and contribute to the transformation of their society starting with their family, school, and community.

The program consists of three parts, namely: the study of the junior youth books, artistic activities to enhance power of expression and service projects. Integral to the programme is the training of student volunteers from classes 9, 10, 11, 12 to serve as “animators” and to facilitate the programme for groups of 10 of their younger peers from classes 6, 7 and 8.

JYEP is not an extra-curricular activity; the program falls within the school curriculum and time table. It takes place only during assembly and zero periods and the animators do not miss any regular class. Animators are able to balance academic level and service to their fellow school mates considering both as part of their preparation for the future. This goes to show that as students, they can live an integrated life- they can balance intellectual and spiritual growth through service, help in changing society for the better. We have 926 animators in 9 campuses of CMS today. A 10th campus, Chowk, has just begun the journey. Following are the Campus JYEP Coordinators and Volunteers.

Mahanagar Campus:

There are around 56 students serving in Mahanagar every week as animators. We feel that as the programme is growing in the branch, the zeal and enthusiasm of the animators is increasing each year. Like some animators of class 11 expressed their willingness to give their year of service in class 12, while class 9 animators plan an exhibition within few months of starting their groups. This is what real Empowerment is and still a lot to learn!

Rajendra Nagar Campus I:

The programme nurtures the junior youth in the sensitive age-group of 12-15 who look up to the animators as their role models. They admire and adore them. Service projects like creative expressions, primary moral teaching, assembly presentations and educational trips on various themes allow them to explore the concepts they have learnt in their JYEP books in real life situations and experiences. Currently, there are 157 animators in Rajendra Nagar Campus I.

Each day is a great learning experience with these beautiful souls and the energy that they have to serve in their own communities takes the program into the next level. We already have a list of 70 volunteers of class IX for undergoing JYEP training.


Station Road Campus:

JYEP started in Station Road from March 2015. It has been a wonderful experience of walking the path of service along with the animators. The whole hearted collaboration and guidance of the Principal, Vice-principal and incharges has contributed greatly to the smooth running of the programme in the campus.

Gomti Nagar Campus I :

It was around eight years back that the management decided to begin with a new endeavour called the Junior Youth Empowerment Programme in GN I. Since then the initiative has not only been helping the junior youth but also the animators in developing their power of expression. Team work is the key note. The program creates for the junior youth, space for thoughtful reflection. At present, the animators and the junior youth are busy with a number of acts of service like the primary teaching, tutorials, accompaniment program, the radio program called “the Confusion Junction” and many more.
