Making New Friends

Youth in Canada gathered this summer for 10 regional conferences called by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of Canada— their national governing council. These conferences were designed to further a process promoted by the 114 youth conferences convened worldwide last year at the request of the Universal House of Justice, the international governing council of the Baha’i community.

The latest conferences welcomed more youth into a process that provides people of all ages with the opportunity to contribute to constructive social change and to build capacity to serve their communities.

Two participants in the Montreal conference were inspired by the positive response they received when they invited their friends to join the group’s activities, which are aimed at serving their community.
